I have been working through ideas for a blended and flipped classroom model in my first grade classroom for the past two years now. I've come to the following decisions on how to tackle this exciting challenge and am looking for your experience and feedback as I get ready to jump in:
Math: I would like to "clone" myself and use my iPads to create lesson stations that support our curriculum. I can work with struggling students while on-level and above receive video lessons from me. I would like to put optional enrichment lessons for those that choose to do them at home online.
Lang. Arts: I would like to "clone" myself for word work stations. I would also like to recreate some guided reading group moments for children at higher levels to work in book clubs using videos to guide them with some critical thinking skills.
Some things about my class:
My students are all fluent technology users.
Almost all of my students either own or share their own devices or can access something from home.
Technology is already a regular part of our classroom.
Your thoughts, resources, experiences, warnings, and feedback would be greatly appreciated!
