For grades 7 through 12, I have had a Google Classroom for the last two school years. I have found that it was a great tool to use to communicate with students. For example, Senior Classroom is where I have posted all their scholarships so students can access them from anywhere. They don't have to find me or wait on copies. With the other grade levels, I have shared little bits of information here and there - more in the high school than with the junior high.
Today, I created a new classroom for both the 5th and 6th graders who will be coming to our building next year. Each student in those grade levels (plus those in the high school who hadn't accepted their invitation to join yet) should have received an invitation to join my google classroom. I noticed that I have two 5th graders who have accepted their invitation already!
I will be using the classrooms in the near future to share information and forms for scheduling for next year. Please make sure that if your child has not joined my classroom, that they do. If you would also like to receive notifications, you may email me and let me know. I will then send you an invitation.
If you did not receive an email today, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you the link and code for your grade level classroom. I look forward to hearing from you and "seeing" you in my classroom.
