  15. Every time I post something on my class blog, I send a Remind notification with the link out to parents and students. They range from extra credit activities, blogging tasks, challenges, virtual field trips, to any additional learning task that I want my students to engage in. Kidblog + Remind

  21. A Common Core Vocabulary Quizlet set link is embedded on the Smore application. I also include a Kahoot! game link in the Smore. This app enables students to play a fast-paced, high-energy game at home with family members and friends. Lastly, Flocabulary educational hip-hop videos are embedded into the Smore flyer, so that students can review test-taking vocabulary in an engaging and unique way. I then embed this fantastic online flyer into my Kidblog class blog and send out Remind notifications so that all members of the school community can access these excellent resources.
