Learning Link: Building the Connection Between the Classroom and Home
The goal of Connected Class is to support learning by enhancing communication between the classroom and the home environment through exciting games, strategies, and activities.
Learning Link videos and other resources speak to the classroom teacher as well as the parent. Each video focuses on one concept. That concept is modeled as a game, strategy or as an activity. Each video includes ways to modify the learning experience for both struggling learners as well as students that need to be challenged.
The educator is encouraged to implement the engaging experiences in the classroom then forward the video email to parents. Families are able to see what is occurring in the classroom and they have a fun way to practice newly learned material at home. The videos make it easy to implement. The emails are ready to go with an additional written activity card for review. The email system also tracks who is watching and opening the resources. It is as simple as watch, play, and forward!
