Paraphrasing Notes

Hi Everyone,

It has been great meeting with you all for parent teacher conferences! Thanks for supporting your child with their education through 5th grade! Together, we can make this a successful year for our students. 🙂

In writing today, we paraphrased notes from a persuasive article on whether students should go to school 4 days or 5 days a week. We took notes and paraphrased together before they broke off into group. While in groups, we took notes through an application called TodaysMeet.

What is TodaysMeet?

TodaysMeet is the premier backchannel chat platform for classroom teachers and learners. Designed for teachers, TodaysMeet takes great care to respect the needs and privacy of students while giving educators the tools for success.

Students join fast, easy to start rooms with no sign up, and can immediately start powerful conversations that augment the traditional classroom.

Embracing the backchannel can turn it from distraction to engagement. Participants can learn from each other and share their insights, improving participation and deepening learning. TodaysMeet enables instant formative assessment feedback, and much more.

It was great and we cannot wait to do this again!

Thanks for checking in!

Ms. Gray
