Kia ora and welcome to my 2023 Class OnAir site. My name is Kelsey Parrant and this is my seventh year teaching in a 1-1 Digital learning environment.
I am a year 5 teacher at Pt England School in Auckland, New Zealand. I teach in a shared space with one other teacher. Our studnets access their learning through a class site using their chromebooks.
You will see me facilitate lessons to the whole class and small groups. The small groups that this site focuses on are considered to have similar learning needs, forming a collaborative learning group.
If you would like to contact me about any of my lessons or activities, please contact me via the links below.
