Do you Weebly?

Hello blogland! It's Brenda from You Might Be a First Grader...

I'm on summer break (and despite the cool temps and constant rain) I'm enjoying it so far. I can say my place hasn't been this tidy/organized since....well....I guess last summer, lol.

I attended some professional development opportunities this week and I thought I'd share one with you.

This past school year I heard about Weebly. It's a site where you can create a FREE webpage. I played around on it but nothing really developed, so I was excited to see one of the PD opportunities was to learn more about Weebly.

I want to develop a site for parents to visit to find out about what's going on in the classroom. I hope to keep on top of it and add weekly spelling, math, etc. You can even add files for them to download so permission slips, homework assignments, printable books, TpT products (that you have license to share), etc can be accessed from their homes. I am not sure how many parents will utilize it but I'm hoping it's one of those things that some parents use it this year then more next, and so on and so on until it snowballs and basically my whole class has access to it.

I created this video (it did get cut off BUT I just wanted to do an intro anyway) If you have any questions just leave a comment and I'll reply if I can.

  1. I love it. I didn't know this website existed. I think it's also a good idea to hold all the information you give to parents in the first meeting you have with them.
