Technology. You either love it or hate it. Or is it possible to love it and hate it all at the same time?! I have several apps that hopefully you will love!
The first is a quick way to communicate with parents. It’s called Remind101. It can be used as a website or a download for your smartphone. To use the web version, simply go to www.remind101 to get started. For smart phones, download the app and message away!
This great tool allows you to send a message to your students’ parents by text. This is great for those days you forgot to send a reminder note about something happening the following day. You can even set your text to send at a certain time of day.
I have the app on my iPhone and absolutely love it! there are some other programs out there that work the same way, such as dialmycalls.com and Kikutext.com, but I do not have personal experience with them.
I recommend Remind 101 as a quick and free communication tool for all grade levels…
