Marci asked if I would mind doing a post for the parents out there, and my response was, SURE! This is a blog that I keep for the teachers in Hallsville, but parents are welcome to check it out as well. On here I share websites, lesson ideas, and Google tips. Many of these tips and sites are great for parents to use at home, too! Today is a special post to parents and families out there!
As we come up on Christmas, I can only imagine the tablets and electronics being purchased or used over break. One huge concern of parents is, how do we keep our kids safe? We want to stay away from inappropriate content, strangers, and cyberbullying. Here are some tips I came across for specific sites. Click on it and it will take you to where you can find tips for Netflix, YouTube, Apple products, Minecraft, etc. It is a GREAT help! They are in the top toolbar in a dropdown menu.
