Today was a very challenging day for all of my students. We attempted to jump into the 21st century learning and set up the following to aid in classroom instruction:
Google Email-Device Connection
Blog Subscription Via Student Email
Google Calendar Set Up- Track assignments and activities etc.
Google Classroom Set Up-Learning to work independently using online resources
Since technology skills within my classroom are a very large range in ability, our progress can be measured in varied ranges. I can attest all students learned new skills today, yeah!!! Therefore, many did not complete their assignment. The assignment for the weekend is to complete the tasks using Google Classroom:
Read both syllabus for Science and Social and complete Classroom Overview questions 1-4 using online student interactive notebook (SIN).
Take the online vocabulary pretest located in Google Classroom and email score to Mrs. Niklasch. This is a pretest and will not impact students’ grade, as it is a tool to show growth.
Complete the cover page of the SIN using clip and word art.
To access Google Classroom, please use this LINKand the following passcode: 6vq6ii
For students that do not have access to the internet, public libraries are always open for patronage. In addition, I open my classroom at lunch for students that need access and they are able to complete assignments. If you have any questions completing the assignment, please feel free to email me asap.
PS- Struggle equals growth and growth equals learning!!!!!
Please view your child’s multiple intelligence assessment and discuss your child’s learning profile. It is always fun to compare student profiles with their parents’ profiles to gather an understanding of how our students learn best.
Please have a family discussion on the following quote and how it connects to 21st century learning: “Conformity is the opposite of creativity”.
Please watch the following 21st Century Learning and view the image below. Please hold me accountable if you do not believe your child is receiving 21st century education. The partnership between parents, students, and teachers have never been more vital or necessary to ensure our students are ready for the 21st century economy.
