Greetings Oakton Community!
Welcome to our new Principal Blog. I hope to use this blog to share with you some of the wonderful things that happen at Oakton Elementary every week. This week was no exception. Dr. Harvey Almarode spent two days with our teachers talking about math and the SMART Board. The SMART Board is an interactive whiteboard. It connects to a computer and projector and allows students to manipulate objects and text. It’s like a giant touchscreen computer! Our teachers worked with SMART Board lessons created by Harvey, learned alternative teaching strategies, mental math techniques, and made manipulatives to be used with SMART Board lessons. Everyone left each session energized and excited to bring these new learning opportunites into the classroom.
