November Mindset Reflection

My website is functioning and I’m usually remembering to update the assignments everyday.  Some parents have mentioned checking the website if their student forgot his/her assignment notebook at school.

Now the next part for me is to add links to my newsletters and articles that might be helpful to parents and students.  By the end of the year, I’m hoping to post student work!  

The article from Khan on “growth mindset” reminds me that my brain is growing as I struggle with technology.  He writes “Neural connections form and deepen most when we make mistakes doing difficult tasks rather than repeatedly having success with easy ones.”  When I remember that, I’m ready for another session of “Inspired Writing.”

September reflection

Finally….with the help of Randy and many others, I was able to share my class website with parents at our Back to School Night in August.  It was my goal to create a functioning website this fall, and I did it! My goal, now, is to post timely newsletters, as well as more resources for my students and parents.
