Love the Poems

04:01 to: Kim Caise

04:28 to: Peggy George

I am in charge of our Parent Volunteer Bunch each year. Great poems Peggy. I'll probably use one this year on the invitation.

05:03 to: Peggy George
wonderful!! I was hoping you would find them useful!

05:52 to: @shamblesguru
Unfortunately Australia has gone to sleep

05:59 to: Peggy George
I'm glad Lorna mentioned about all of the links in the chat log. We always post them in the archives so you can go back and get them again.

we should say all of the above :-)

06:33 to: Reba
A and E

06:43 to: Shelia B

06:57 to: Peggy George
that's really interesting because I think the trend is that parents volunteer more in elementary than in MS and HS

07:14 to: Kim Caise
not all volunteers are necessarily parents

07:17 to: Peggy George
we rely on volunteers in our tech association (AzTEA)

07:24 to: Shelia B

07:57 to: Peggy George
just click on ABCDE in the participants window so your vote shows up in the shart

08:00 to: Peggy George

08:09 to: Kim T AZ
what? we don't get paid in AzTEA?

08:13 to: Kim Caise

08:15 to: Peggy George

08:16 to: Laura Sheehy

08:26 to: Peggy George
we are all cheerful volunteers!!!

our PTA does an excellent job at handling our fundraising, but the classroom volunteering is the problem

10:46 to: debschi

11:20 to: Peggy George
fantastic list!!! Karen has some outstanding tips and tools to help all of us with volunteers!

11:32 to: Peggy George
Welcome Karen!!!

11:35 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
In our school each Homeroom has a Parent Volunteer captain and co-captain. One year I had 11 parent volunteers.

11:43 to: yorkieswv

11:47 to: Kim Caise
that is outstanding!

11:48 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
Hi Karen.

11:50 to: Lorna Costantini

12:05 to: Peggy George
wonderful Paula!!! you must know how to make parents feel welcomed and needed!

12:12 to: Sofia Segurola-Calderon
I called on the phone pls accept me

12:42 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
@Peggy, I think too many teachers don't know how to make parents feel welcome.

12:54 to: Kim Caise
we don't have that setup this morning sofia. did you run the audio setup wizard?

13:16 to: Sofia Segurola-Calderon
should I hang up

13:25 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
Ihave working moms make flashcards and learning centers at home so they can be involved.

13:27 to: Sofia Segurola-Calderon
audio set up it never asked

13:31 to: Laura Sheehy
Sofia, you can turn on closed captioning too - click on "CC" at the top of the window

13:34 to: debschi
@Stephanie Pearl r u from Wykoff?

13:34 to: Peggy George
I agree Paula. And my own daughters (parents) have also found that some teachers didn't want them in the room. Very sad!

13:42 to: Kim Caise
yes hang up for now. did you run the setup wizard?

14:01 to: Kim Caise
the audio setup wizard will help you set your audio properties to hear

14:07 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
Exactly, teachers feel noncomfortable with parents in classroom.

14:11 to: Sofia Segurola-Calderon
how do I run the audio should I leave and come back up

14:14 to: Peggy George
that is such a fantastic tool!!!

14:21 to: Kim Caise
no, you don't need to leave

14:39 to: debschi
@ Sofia the closed door syndrom!

14:42 to: Sofia Segurola-Calderon

16:09 to: Laura Sheehy

Can parents be in class w/o teacher though? District call?

20:51 to: Lorna Costantini
organizing training for parent meetings and school councils

21:01 to: Peggy George
YES!!! a budget necessity AND parent involvement is essential to student success in school

21:12 to: Reba
some teachers need an in-service on how to work with parent volunteers. Some teachers need help with community people skills

21:14 to: Kim Caise
depends on school/district policies

21:20 to: Peggy George
there is a great research report in our gl.am links about parent volunteers and student achievement

21:22 to: Delbusch
grandparents read with our little ones

21:23 to: Kim Caise
and for specified lengths of time

21:29 to: Sherri
fieldtrip, observation of own child, one-to-one instruction

21:35 to: Peggy George
yes Reba!!! parents definitely need some training!

21:53 to: Peggy George
they need to know important things especially confidentiality issues

22:00 to: @shamblesguru
QUESTION: In the USA ...if a parent is in school do they have heir break in the teaher staff room ... or are the seperate?

22:31 to: Reba
I mean that our teachers need training also- Teachers need to learn how to positively deal with parents

22:33 to: Lorna Costantini
personal experience in Canada - eat and drink together

22:33 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
I asked parents who brought kids to classroom if they could stay for about 20 minutes and help collect and organize supplies. Had three that stayed.

22:34 to: Peggy George
that was always a challenge in our school @shamblesguru! we finally created a separate parent lounge for them

22:46 to: Kim Caise
depends shambles

22:55 to: debschi
Separate in my school. Most don't stay for a length of time that deems a break.

23:05 to: Peggy George
teachers talk about lots of things in the teachers lounge...

23:06 to: Reba
Some teachers feel parents are an intrusion or distractions

23:17 to: Peggy George
yes Reba

23:34 to: Peggy George
these are great suggestions Karen!!

23:35 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
@shamblesguru In our building there is a special room for parent volunteers, faculty room is for teachers only.

24:05 to: @shamblesguru

24:08 to: debschi
Wow Paula seems like you have major parent support!

24:13 to: Reba
I am going to introduce this at our school- this is great.

24:20 to: Kim Caise
running off copies or laminating can be problematic when teachers and parents are intermixed and casual conversations occurring

24:22 to: Peggy George
important to use parents for tasks they can be successful with--less frustrating for both parent and teacher

24:48 to: Len H
Love bats!

24:49 to: Peggy George
Paula you may want to take the mic after Karen's presentation to share some of your ideas. They are great!

24:55 to: Lorna Costantini
HAving a special room for parents shows wonderful for the importacne of parents

25:00 to: Reba
Exactly Peggy- if they are successful they will come more often and enjoy the experience

25:15 to: Kim Caise
at the planetarium here in san antonio they have evenings where students and parents can view the stars through telescopes outside in the parking lot of the planetarium

25:15 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
@debschi I make a point of asking my parents to help me. Any time I see them I will ask for help in some way. Parents want to help.

25:42 to: debschi
@Lorna and they feel part of a volunteer community!

25:43 to: Peggy George
yes! I found teachers tended to stop asking parents if they didn't get the quality of work they expected but it was really asking them to do things they weren't prepared to do

25:50 to: Len H
I'm hoping to set up evening WiFi at our school.

26:01 to: Lorna Costantini
@debschi exactly

26:08 to: Peggy George
"How would you like to get involved?" Excellent!

26:20 to: Reba
Babysitting for younger siblings is a problem at our site for volunteering parents

26:21 to: Peggy George

27:23 to: Sofia Segurola-Calderon
what is the website embrace diversity..

27:30 to: Peggy George
many parent letters include surveys to ask ways they would be willing to help. Giving them a list with specific suggestions to check off really helps

28:00 to: Sherri
Are there any parent surveys on-line we can use?

28:04 to: Lorna Costantini
The personal touch and ask is one of the most effective ways to get parent participation

28:07 to: Peggy George
we have some in our gl.am links

28:16 to: Len H
Good question Sherri

28:21 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
Wonder if I could set up a 10 minute Spanish class a couple of times a week to get Hispanic parents involved.

28:26 to: Kim Caise

31:03 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
I was making a Mixbook this morning. You can add contributors so maybe could get parents to help you create a memory book for the year.

31:04 to: debschi
@paula I'm in a 5-6 scholl and want to do the same. If you want to share work, I'm up for it!

never really thought about sticking to the agreed time limit

33:31 to: Peggy George
love that point!! best job fit! we want them to be successful!

33:32 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
@Len H. Do you have any resources you could share? I'm collecting my info now for my training sessions. TY

34:02 to: Peggy George
also need to be clear about whether they can bring younger siblings with them when they volunteer--can be very disruptive in the classroom

34:07 to: Shelia B
I send letters to the parents at the beginning of the year and request their email addresses and cell phone numbers.

34:08 to: Kim Caise
whenever we served refreshments we got better turnouts

34:28 to: debschi
@ Kim :)! I'd come!

34:33 to: Sherri

34:34 to: Len H
@pnaugle sure thing Paula

34:34 to: Kim Caise

34:36 to: Peggy George

34:48 to: Kim Caise

We are a span school (6 -12) and our high school students come to our classroom for community service hours.

34:58 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
Open House is next week. I'll have a form ready for parents to sign up to volunteer - either at home or in the classroom.

35:15 to: Peggy George
younger siblings can take the focus off the purpose of the volunteering

@debschi I teach 4th graders math and social studies.

36:02 to: Len H
Mine does as well

36:06 to: Peggy George
a parent volunteer handbook is a great idea

36:58 to: Sherri
good idea

37:13 to: Peggy George
love it!! the KISS principle :-)

37:35 to: Peggy George
this is where VolunteerSpot comes in :-)

37:35 to: debschi
@ Paula Great idea for me entering a new library w/ an already in place volunteer group

37:59 to: sebastianpanakal
Use a Wiki!!

38:13 to: Peggy George
wait until she shows you her tools!!! :-)

38:50 to: Peggy George
this is going to make your life so simple!!

38:51 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
@debschi The way you start out with making volunteers feel welcome sets the tone for others. Good luck with new position.

39:01 to: debschi

39:15 to: Peggy George

39:19 to: Radney
In Tools Application sharing, choose "scale to fit" for best results.

39:54 to: Peggy George
that is incredible!!!

40:06 to: Kim Caise
what a fantastic timesaver

40:12 to: Peggy George

40:17 to: sebastianpanakal

40:45 to: Paula Naugle (@plnaugle)
I need parents to tutor math skills.

40:48 to: Peggy George
Karen can you re-use these every year once you get them setup--just changing dates?

41:12 to: Peggy George
this is great because they don't have to register like they would on Google

41:25 to: debschi
I'm so hoping families have comp access in my new district! This is great!

Speaking of iPad apps, does anyone know if there is an app that students can use to make a tour of the school for visitors that can be used on iPod Touches? I'm thinking of using Flips and loading mov

44:26 to: clinds
ie onto iPod Touches but wondering if there's another way. Sorry to be off-topic. Loving VolunteerSpot!

44:59 to: Peggy George
@clinds-would GoogleEarth/google maps with images work?

45:08 to: Kim Caise
try @smeech on twitter. Scott was on our show last week

45:33 to: Kim Caise
looks good to me!

45:34 to: Peggy George
there are apps for google earth/maps and youtube videos will play

45:38 to: clinds
@Peggy - That's a great idea. I'll check out GoogleEarth/maps - thanks!

45:59 to: Len H
This is a great tool

46:16 to: Laura Sheehy
looks very easy to use :)

46:22 to: Peggy George
@clinds-also try Trails :-) let's you add images along a "trail"

46:31 to: Laura Sheehy

46:41 to: Peggy George
yes Laura

46:55 to: yorkieswv
Very Neat Karen

47:15 to: Peggy George
Laurie King did a demo of Trails where she strapped her video camera to her head riding her bike around the neighborhood and plotted it all out on Trails

47:39 to: Peggy George
that is SO easy!!! love it!!!

47:42 to: debschi
So cool!

47:47 to: yorkieswv

48:09 to: Laura Sheehy

48:55 to: Peggy George
I love that those icons are clip boards!! nice scaffolding :-)

49:28 to: Peggy George
even if parents don't have computers they almost all have cell phones and may be able to receive text messages

49:35 to: clinds
I can't believe this is free - awesome!
