Such a great tip for sharing information with spanish speaking parents!
Timothy Williams
30:20
does the translation only work through zoom?
Tami Fitzgerald, NBCT
30:36
No it is a part of PPT, not zoom
Susrinder Sandhu
31:07
Google slides have option of translate too
Timothy Williams
31:23
thanks
Tami Fitzgerald, NBCT
31:38
Google slides does it too, but it does not punctuate the way that PPT does.
Lesha Harenberg
31:51
How do you make the translation work?
Tami Fitzgerald, NBCT
32:20
I’ll address the translation after the presentation and model it
Susrinder Sandhu
32:46
On google slides, tool bar its an option og translate
Lesha Harenberg

Thanks!
Lianne Baez

Tami, I want to make sure I understand well. When I have my PPT up and explaining to students, parents present during virtual class, the PPT translate will translate in Spanish while I am explaining, am I correct?
Tami Fitzgerald, NBCT
40:27
yes @Lianne
Susrinder Sandhu
41:30
Could you please share these pages
Lianne Baez

Is there any diagnostic test to use in the beginning of the school to check what grade level student is?
Windy Lopez-Aflitto
59:48
no problem!
Melanie Pesola
01:00:22
square: Parent involvement is essential to student success.
Tracie Stump
01:00:31
Square: Parents are an integral part of the educational process
Diane Simons
01:00:32
What I learned today that squares with my beliefs is that Parents & Teachers are in this together!
Tami Fitzgerald, NBCT
01:00:40
Circle: Would the landing page work in a 9-12 setting?
Amy Elliott
01:00:53
Square: I believe in having a strong connection with families and believe it is important to empower them to be supports for their children
Melanie Pesola
01:00:54
circle: when is the best time for me to implement these tools this year
Windy Lopez-Aflitto
01:00:55
Sorry, wrong response to all panelists. Re: diagnostics, readiness check can be used as a supplemental short assessment but that’s the closest we have to one.
Diane Simons
01:00:56
I will remember the 5 tips.
Carrie Bokal
01:00:57
Triangle- focus on less, go deeper
Cindy Willittes
01:00:57
Square: Parents are large part of process
Essie White
01:00:57
Square: Parents and teachers are partners in educating students.
Linda Nelson
01:01:01
square, Parents/teachers and administrators are all in this together
Eileen Cipriano
01:01:01
I agree that we need to partner with parents for a plan. It's easy for us to assign work, but the parents have so many responsibilities at home as well, and we have to be cognizant of that and not overly burden them.
Paul Choe
01:01:02
Square: Parent-teacher collaboration is very crucial, especially during blended learning times
Maria Luisa Marin
01:01:04
S- to always connect with parents and share data and observations about their child
Linda Durr
01:01:07
square: important role parents play in their child's education and making them feel valued as part of the process
Paul Arroyo
01:01:11
circle: I don’t know how to get this out to all 400 parents reliably. having them reply to emails is tough
Susrinder Sandhu
01:01:31
The square I learned to keep a connection between parents and teachers
Debra Shick
01:01:40
Square: less is more.
Kathia Capellupo
01:01:40
square:Parental involvement shows respect for parents as well as being essential
Kristen Eastvedt
01:01:40
S-building positive relationships with parents is key!
Lauren Lumm
01:01:41
Circle - why do we persist in using developmentally inappropriate standards and labeling schools as “failing” instead of being responsive to the way children actually learn?
Suzann Rose
01:01:42
SQUARE: “Less is more!” Focusing on the essential essentials will provide a bigger bang for our. Buck — especially with the time constraints of DL.
Janet Haber
01:02:00
Q from FB Live:Christina M. Haggard asks Are there resources set up for EC students?
Tracie Stump
01:02:12
Triangle: - Websites provided - access to impt resources; the role of the parent; less is more
Diane Simons
01:02:14
I also agree that ‘less is more’ and that’s how we’ve structured learning for our students. Deeper & Intentional are the keys over too much content.
Jennifer Yates
01:02:15
parent teacher communication is imperative!
Patricia Perez
01:02:15
Square- Connecting and Collaborating with families are important to build relationships.
Maria Luisa Marin
01:02:22
T- To provide 3 skills of the child that parents can focus on and likewise to offer recommen
Eileen Cipriano
01:02:32
In terms of a triangle, letting parents know that their voice is needed is important. I love the Readiness check resource, and will definitely share that with my parents. And leaning into how your child is feeling--particularly in these times--is important. That's so easy to overlook but imperative that we pay attention to this.
Essie White
01:02:35
Triangle: 1. It's good to be able to connect with parents in their home language. 2. Administrators also need to connect with teachers/parents in a positive way. 3. Parents being able to have an app that would provide information is a great resourse.
Maria Lee
01:02:36
S: Less is more. Trying to cover so much is overwhelming for the teacher, students and parents.
Marcie Babb
01:02:43
s- less is more! You can have parents use bealearninghero.org to assess their children and get practice tools
Carrie Bokal
01:02:49
circle- parents didn't plan on being teachers, but for K-2, it's a necessity right now
Linda Nelson
01:03:10
S - love the readiness check
Tracie Stump
01:03:22
While this information is important at the beginning of the year, do you feel that it should be shared at other times of the year - to keep them refreshed?
Cindy Willittes
01:03:30
Circle - how do I use this in High School
Regina O'Leary
01:03:35
circle: How do you engage parents who show little to no interest in the education of their children?
Yvette Gutierrez
01:03:39
Circle: Do teachers get the results of the readiness check? Or, do just the parents get the results?
Elizabeth Howland
01:04:02
square: Parents can give ideas on the best ways to work with their kids.
Kathia Capellupo
01:04:05
triangle: free resource, readiness check for parents and teachers, addresses all cultures/ languages
Lesha Harenberg
01:04:15
Circle: I teach 9-12, and am wondering how to do this with 160 families
Kathia Capellupo
01:04:17
great question
Amy Elliott
01:04:31
Pre-k (as I said earlier, has so much flexibility)... Family connection and social/emotional support is soooooo important for all ages and adults year round.
Mary Keeler
01:04:35
Square: We have what is called APTT 3 times a year. It shows what their child knows at the beginning of the school year. We show 2 strategies to help their child improve in that skill and then the parent makes a goal indicating what their child will achieve for the next APTT meeting. It mentions who and how long that person will help their child achieve their goal. The 2nd APTT they review the goal and if they achieved it and they make a new goal for that skill.
Lora Willingham
01:04:45
Triangle: 1) Listen to Parents; 2)Be a Partner with Parents; 3) SEL is vital, during this time for kids & parents
Tracie Stump
01:05:36
I am a special education teacher. I am fortunate to cycle with my parents through the elementary years. That helps to build trust and gets the parents to know you and you knowing them.
Susrinder Sandhu
01:05:46
Windy could you please share the name of your organization, I am from Michigan
Tami Fitzgerald, NBCT
01:06:05
@Susrinder It is Learning Heroes
Tracie Stump
01:06:16
That is what we are doing all this week.
Susrinder Sandhu
01:06:20
Thanks @Tami
Amy Elliott
01:06:41
Triangle 1. create a relationship with parents so you can have honest conversations together. 2. reassuring parents through virtual learning. 3. emphasis this with hard to reach parents.
Windy Lopez-Aflitto
01:07:25
that’s great, Tracie!
Hubbard
01:07:27
Some of those hardest to reach hparents are because they don't feel connected to the teacher. One from last year is on the phone as the teacher this year is a Spanish speaking teacher.
Kathia Capellupo
01:07:59
nonjudgment
Amy Elliott
01:08:37
We have to teach them ways they can do simple things with their children and acknowledge that parents come from different cultures and have different family dinamics
Janet Haber
01:08:42
Windy is at Learning Heroes, https://bealearninghero.org/

Sorry, I might have missed it… Are there resources for 9 & 10 grade parents?
Amy Elliott
01:10:48
Yay! I see pre-k on there
Tami Fitzgerald, NBCT
01:11:17
Yes, they span all grades, but some are more oriented to k-8
Windy Lopez-Aflitto
01:11:19
Some are focused on K-8 but the Readiness Check can be used for rising 9 and 10th graders and we also have parent resources for H.S parents to share with your families..
