How I Use It
I post a weekly newsletter to inform parents what we are doing in our classroom. I share pictures and videos of activities in our classroom. I have used the classroom management aspect and the children love earning the flowers. Asking for parent volunteers and materials is easy using Bloomz - all parents need to do is sign up. Students have posted work onto their portfolio allowing parents to see the projects they are completing. I love the messaging feature: it's nice to be able to communicate with parents in a quick easy manner.
My Take
I love this app!!! I have used all the features of it and find it all very helpful in communicating to the parents. Parents have told me they have never felt so connected to our class. They love knowing what is going on in our classroom. The student portfolio has increased my comfort level with project based learning. I am so glad that Bloomz has all the features it offers. It is wonderful!
