FrontRow JUNO...You Had Me at Hello!


I have written several local mini-grants to purchase speaker-type systems throughout my teaching career. The Juno Tower is my 4th system! This by far is the best system that I have ever used! 
It's NO Tom Cruise, but it had me at HELLO!! 
                       IT COMPLETES ME :) 
Everything I ever wanted and MORE! 
We have been using our JunoTower System since the end of August. Team Newell Students are very attentive and motivated to learn! 
The student microphone keeps students on their toes! It motivates them to participate! 
The teacher microphone saves my voice. I am learning to speak clearly and calmly. 
The software has motivated me to improve instruction. We record lessons so students and parents can review them on our YouTube Channel. 
Team Newell Students beg to learn a new cursive letter each day to watch the videos made by using the FrontRow Software. I am modeling how to use the software for a few more weeks. Students will be making videos soon too! Here are a few of the videos. Visit our channel throughout the year to see how our Juno Tower enriches learning!
Did you know... kids farthest from the teacher can miss up to 40% of what's being said? Did you know that 25% of what the teacher says in class never reaches students' brains? Write a grant or speak to someone who might be able to purchase you a Juno Tower TODAY :)

What Would You Do? Journal Writing

What Would You Do? is an American television news magazine and hidden camera show

 broadcast on ABC since 2008 as part of the Primetime series. The series is hosted by news

 correspondent John QuiƱones.

I love this show!
Using hidden cameras, What Would You Do? establishes everyday scenarios and then captures people's reactions. Whether people are compelled to act or mind their own business.

A Kid's Guide to Tricky and Sticky Situations. Flat bike tires, forgotten homework, obscene phone calls—more than 70 situations kids could encounter when they are on their own.
I like to use this book to teach life long lessons and to practice daily writing skills. It gives great advice on what should be done in confusing, ambiguous, dangerous, or unexpected situations at home, school, or out on your own. 
I was inspired to create my own What Would You Do? Pack. A blank template is included in the pack so students can create their own scenarios to use with partner writing etc.
