Please help your child with the packets which were sent home on March 13th by the grade level teachers. More grade level packets are currently being assembled. (I'll let you know how you will get them when I find out.)
Important: check in daily on your homeroom teacher's account (Class Tag, Class Dojo, Bloomz, etc.) to see what assignments or information that teacher may have for you.
You can email me at email@example.com with questions or to send completed work (upload a picture of the work). I'll be happy to get back with you.
I plan to use Google Meet for video chats to continue to teach my students. More information about this will follow but right now I'm trying to make sure everyone is able to connect and I'm going to do practice sessions with each child individually. If it works, we'll be learning together again next week. If it doesn't, I'll let you know what Plan B is. I just feel that these students will love the online experience, they learn best when they can show me their work and get instant feedback and approval, their technological skills will improve, they'll learn virtual classroom etiquette (like muting a microphone when the dog starts barking), and we'll all have fun!
In order for your child to participate in my virtual classes next week, you need to do the following:
*get a gmail address if you don't already have one,
*send me your gmail address so I can use it to send the video chat invitation with instructions for how to get into the video chat, and
*download these 2 apps to your device: Google Meet and Hangouts.
