Share the Love


The Last/Next Time
Teaching blog shorts to get you thinking.

The Last Time
When was the last time you took a picture of your work in the classroom?
When were you able to share a snapshot of your students at work? Do you have a routine to display your activities? Or is it more of a spontaneous thing to share a pic or video on social media or through email?

The Next Time
Take advantage of the next time you can share a snapshot of your class in action.
Many teachers already share class activities on social media. Even if you can’t use students in the picture or video, a close-up of recent work can show insight into learning. Besides connecting with other educators, parents and students alike enjoy seeing the school in action. Don’t be shy; build that community relationship. Always have a camera ready in case of a photo opportunity! Another idea is to include a picture in email— perhaps you have a routine of “good news” messages sent home. Promote the class experience, through both success and failure, and remember to say cheese. :)
