Flip Sneak-A-Peek!

I had a light bulb moment early this morning!  Our school has Sneak-A-Peek before the school year begins.  Parents and students are given an opportunity to meet their new teachers and see their classrooms for the first time. It is very informal. What a wonderful opportunity for me to introduce flipping to my parents!

I am going to record a video for Sneak-A-Peek, have laptops set up, so parents can view the short video as part of their visit.  Then I will only have to  say those things I usually have to repeat over and over 1 time!  That will free me up to actually meet and greet the parents and students while they meander through the class. I won't have that nagging feeling that I forgot to tell a parent something.  I will make sure I include instructions on how to join our Edmodo group on the video.  I think this will be a great opportunity for parents to experience the flip for themselves!  What do you think?

  1. I think this is an excellent opportunity for parents to be introduced to "flipping" by posting the video on your class website as well. This way parents can have the opportunity to engage their children in real face-time conversation. By this I mean, this can be a start of something we all long for--academic talk at home. When parents ask their children, "What did you learn in class today?" The answer might be,"Hey, let me show you," instead of the same old answer, "Nothing." Just a thought.
