Dr. Robinson - 4th Grade - Please read the bottom of the page. Thank you for letting me teach your children this year, it is an amazing gift to share.
In our classroom, we will utilize 21st century skills daily. Your child will share daily what they learn through technology any time, any-where.Hopefully your child has worked in dream box all summer as this is a program we will utilize a great deal. They will show you how to go on virtual field trips learning about Virginia history. Most evenings your child will need to complete an assignment on the computer. They will electronically forward that assignment to me. This helps them embrace digital communication in a safe, flexible, effective environment. All students are assigned a number in class. The assigned number will be used for these submissions. They never need to put their names on any of these assignments.
The students will create presentations with animation and sound. Please encourage them to use excel and word as this continues to afford students with opportunities in and out of class to apply technology to develop skills, design and facilitate meaningful learning experiences, thereby encouraging students to create, problem solve, communicate, collaborate, and use real-world skills.
The goal in our classroom is for each student to become a confident, life-long, independent learner, growing to his or her fullest potential.
Rosa Lee Carter School is a Positive Behavior Intervention School. We support the three paws of respecting self, property and others at all time. As a school, we have many initiatives that recognize students who are modeling this behavior.
Please feel free to email me if you have any questions. The success of our classroom comes from open communication and modeling the skills we want students to embrace. I believe it will be a great year and I look forward to working with each of you!
