Examples of specific ways to use Remind
 Prek-5th grade:
-You need your students to finish their math boxes that they did at
school and then use that to complete their math homework sheet. So,
you use remind to let their parents/guardians know to tell their
children to remember to complete their math homework.
 6th-8th grade:
-You want to do an interactive assignment with your students, so you
ask them to pull their cell phones out. You then use remind to send out
a poll for them to answer. The whole class then analyzes the results.
 9th-12th grade:
-You are the leader of the Key Club and you need all of your members
to sign up to help with the service project. You can send out a remind
for all of the member to please meet immediately after school in your
classroom to sign up for a time.
Examples of specific ways to use Remind
 College:
-You even could use Remind in college to remind
students to complete their history quiz before Friday at
midnight.
 Coordinate with other Teachers:
-You could use Remind for the teachers in your grade
level or subject area. This way you could send everyone
the Compare and Contrast assignment that the students
need to complete.
Examples continued…
 You need to remind your first graders to bring their field trip forms
back with a parents signature, so you can send out a Remind to
their parents/guardians.
 Green Team is meeting next week and you need to send out a
reminder to all of the members to remember to attend the
mandatory meeting.
 You need your 7th grade students to remember to bring a rough draft
of their paper for Unit 1 about recycling. So, you can send out a
remind to your students so they won’t forget!
There are so many ways that you can incorporate
Remind in the classroom, in after school activities, etc.

Now let’s do a specific situation where
you could use Remind
 We are a 10th grade classroom
(This means every student should be older than 13).
 Subject: Biology
 Topic: Are all living things composed of cells?
 We just wrapped the lesson up and did group projects discussing
whether or not all living things are composed of cells. I now need to
see if you truly understand, so I am going to send out a remind and
you are going to respond with true or false. (This is a fun way for
the students to interact as well as allow the teacher to see if the
students understand the question of this lesson.)
