Technology I Can Statements for the Classroom Teacher


Technology I Can Statements blog post
Our classrooms and our students are changing. With all of the new technology available to us on a daily basis it is no surprise that students are coming into our classrooms with more and more skills each year. As educators, we need to keep up through research and playing with these devices ourselves! I know we don't have the time to become fluent in everything technology, so I created a product to help us out. I am very excited to introduce "Technology I Can Statements"

For K-2nd grades I focused on building technology vocabulary as well as skills like double-clicking, keyboarding, and using a computer mouse to illustrate ideas. The set with large, half-page posters go directly with your other I Can statements because they were pulled directly from the common core statements and then matched with the ISTE NETS for students, which we are all required to teach! The quarter-page I Can statements are meant to go by your computer stations and focus on actual skills required to be successful in the modern classroom.

The posters for grades 3-5 could even be used as task cards for your students. You will see I Can statements like " We can use technology with our class and our teacher to make predictions related to topics that we are studying," and "I can adjust layers in a presentation program." These will help your students become problem solvers when using technology and certainly build their skills. With any of the quarter-page I Can statements you will gain access to a website with curated technology activities sorted by common core standard- that alone is worth the cost of the product, which is only $5!

Imagine your administrators coming in for your next observation and seeing I Can statements for technology skills hanging on your walls or in your pocket chart. Even better, imagine them watching your students using technology independently and completing tasks even your administrators don't know how to do! You and your students need these!
In the very near future I am going to post technology task cards for each grade level, so come back often and I will let you know when they are done.

Teacher Style


Teaching in an elementary school requires a high level of professional appearance. This isn't always easy when we are up and down from the floor several times a day. Most days I at least have to kneel, if not get all the way on the floor when working on technology troubleshooting or with a small group on the carpet.

I scour Pinterest constantly for ideas for outfits I can wear to school. The main ingredients for a teacher outfit:
1. Modest: this one is pretty important. We need to have everything covered at all times. If I can't bend over a desk without exposing something, then that outfit is not an option for me.
2. Flexible: I mean 2 things by this one. It has to stretch for those trips to the floor, and it needs to accommodate the temperature differences throughout the school. Some days the air is on, some days it isn't... gotta be prepared.
3. Professional: they say to dress for the job you want. I see some teachers wearing suit pieces, but this just doesn't work for my position. Business casual generally works for the elementary classroom.

Did I leave anything off the list?

One thing I haven't been able to figure out yet is how to wear a dress to school. Any advice?

New Blog!


I have been blogging over at another host site for over a year and haven't been happy with it. I am so excited to be moving over to blogger. I will slowly add my blog posts from the other site. In case you're not familiar with me, I am an elementary science and technology teacher (pretty sweet job) and a teacher author. I love writing blog posts about how I integrate technology in my classroom. Thanks for stopping by!
