Kinder Teachers Meeting Kids Where They Are

Here’s a fact…kids love to watch YouTube. And, some of our FNE kindergarten teachers are taking full advantage of that fact! Each week student folders go home with information about what’s happening at school and the homework for the week, but, now, it also includes a section called “QR Surprise”. For each day, a QR code takes parents to a YouTube video that students watched that day in class. The idea is for students and parents to watch it together so they can talk about what they are learning. It includes parents in their children’s classroom experience and inspires conversations about learning. Kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Ploch, said the response from parents has been positive, and the videos offer a connection between school and home. Mrs. Brooks, FNE Principal, says, “It’s a fun way to sneak learning into all the YouTube watching kids are doing at home!” She should know, because her daughter is a kindergartner at FNE! “She wants to do it every night! She loves it,” Brooks reports. FISD is excited to have teachers who are always looking for new ways to engage students and parents in learning, both at school and at home. #FISDInnovative #FISDFutureReady #FNESetSail
