4 Things To Put On An Educator Page
Being a teacher requires thorough organization. You can help yourself, students and their parents get organized by creating an Educator Page.
What Are Educator Pages?
Educator Pages is a website builder that is exclusively free for teachers, administrators, and information technology departments to build and share with their beneficiaries. Teachers can share class information with students and parents.
Administrators can keep teachers and other school district personnel in the loop with news updates. Information technology professionals will enjoy that the information is encrypted in transit only with over 99% of uptime for maximum security and enhanced loading times.
The website builder only costs extra if you desire the more premium features that it has to offer. You do not have to opt into a free trial. Once you sign up, services will always be free unless you decide to opt into the premium features.
You can change website backgrounds with the touch of a button. Edit different pages on your website with simple tasks. If you have never built a website before, do not fret because it is an easily understandable format for first-timers.
What To Put On An Educator Page
There are many ways that you can connect with students and teachers on your Educator Page. Of course, you will want to place up as many resources as possible so that it’s beneficial for the students and teachers viewing the page.
If you are not sure about everything that you should put on your Educator Page, especially as a new teacher, here are the four components that you can include.
Lesson Plans for the Week
Lesson plans should always be updated weekly. Students can refer to the objectives that they should be learning to reassure them that they understand them.
Parents can view the lesson plans so that they know what their children are learning about in the classroom. Caretakers can go the extra mile and try to work with their children on challenging subjects by finding worksheets online.
You can go the extra mile as the teacher and provide a PDF file of extra different worksheets that students can print out as additional work to help them understand the subject matter better. For example, if it’s mathematics, change up the numbers in the problem. If it’s spelling, try different worksheets that change up the letter in the word for a fill-in-the-blank activity.
Special projects help to reinforce students’ learning in a fun and creative way. Students can test their skills in an individual or group project that challenges them to reach milestones in understanding classroom material while executing what they learn in the form of a written paper, verbal presentation, or a physical representation such as a poster or diorama.
Here are ideas for special projects that you can announce to parents and include on the Educator Page as a reminder to students:
For younger grades, reminders about show and tell.
Book reports are due soon.
Research papers are due in the next couple of weeks.
A group project that the class is working on.
A popular one: 100th-day-of-school project.
Students can bring in 100 of something to show the class and count out.
Can represent 100 by drawing on a posterboard.
Special announcements are a fun way to connect with the parents to let them know what’s going on in your classroom. Especially if you are a teacher in middle school or high school, these reminders are great for students who have multiple classes with different instructors.
You can make special announcements such as:
Birthday shout-out for the students who have a birthday that month.
Let parents know about any school trips and deadlines for submitting permission slips.
Half days or school closings on holidays or snow days.
A reminder list of items to bring from home for a specific in-class project.
YouTube Videos That Correspond To Classroom Material
Not everyone is an auditory learner in the classroom. For those that excel with visual learning, have a page full of YouTube video links that correspond to the current week’s classroom material. If you have a slideshow or video that you made yourself, make a YouTube account, especially for teaching videos, so you can include these links on the Educator Page as well.
