Teacher Tips and Ideas
First Time Use:  Have students practice before using it on a class graded assignment.  Here are some ideas:
  • Teacher/Student Introduction:  
    • Name, birth month, favorite food, favorite animal, a place you would like to travel to: Link
  • What's your one word? If you had to choose one word to describe what you want this next school year to look like, what would it be? Link
  • Goal Setting/Reflection:  In the beginning of the year or new semester, have students create a graphic showing long and short term goals.  Then use flipgrid to discuss goals and how they want to accomplish this.
  • Friday 5-4-3-2-1: 5 things that made you smile this week, 4 words to describe my week, 3 things I plan to do this week, 2 things I learned this week, 1 goal I have for next week.  Link
