A new page to misterfranklin.com will hold "mini" assignments and videos to watch...all in preparation for the next week's lessons. Look for "The Flip" page. The idea behind a flipped classroom is to provide essential information (at home) that can build schema for ALL students with simple and fun assignments. For example, next week we will learn about Non-Fiction Text Features with the emperor penguin...watching videos on both will help build background knowledge and vocabulary. Please watch these videos with your student and help get them ready for some of the exciting lessons we will be learning about. Look for a video a week...sometimes more. You can take notes on the videos, remind the kids how to stop and pause, as well as rewind to hear important information again. Have fun!
