Two Ways to Send Messages
1. Announcements- An announcement goes out to the students/parents (whoever has signed up for Remind). They can respond to the announcement, but this response will not be shared with the rest of the class.
2. Chats- A Chat is best for a small group of students because when/if they respond to you they will all see each other's responses. I have found that this is motivating for students, but it can also be overwhelming to get so many responses.
How I'm Using Remind
I use Remind for vocabulary reinforcement over breaks. So far I have used it over our week long Thanksgiving Break, and our three week long winter break. Not only does it create an opportunity for review, but it creates a stronger classroom community. I highly recommend it!
Below are the questions that I used for one week with one of my classes:
Monday- What prefix do I need to add to “responsible” to mean “not responsible”?
Tuesday- What prefix do I need to add to “logical” to mean “not logical”?
Wednesday- What suffix do I need to add to “harm” to mean “without harm”?
