March 22, 2020  (How to join Google Classroom)

 

Dear Parents and Students,         

I can’t believe that we were in school little more than a week ago and it was more or less a normal school day.  It seems like eons ago! 

I have been busy this week learning new things and ways to do things.  I have created a Google Classroom for each of my classes. One silver lining is that we have a chance to try some things that we couldn’t do in the classroom since we are not a one-to-one device school. 

I don’t just want to post worksheets for students because there is no easy way to go over them or receive them and frankly, they are not the most effective or engaging activities for students.  There are a lot of fabulous free online resources that we can use. I have found ways that students can hear and read Spanish, do reinforcement activities, and get instant feedback. They also allow me to keep track of their progress and provide feedback. 

I need your help to get this up and running.  All students will need to open a free Google account.  Many of you already have one, but I will need each student to have an account that includes their real name so that I can give them credit for their work and know who they are.   

For students who are under 13 years of age,  I am asking that parents please open an account for their children.  Google asks for a birthdate when an account is created and will not allow those under 13 to open accounts. 

If you do not know how to open a Google account, please watch the video below. It will guide you through it. 

To create a Google account:

How to Create a Google Account

Once you have created a Google account, you will need to join the Google Classroom for your class.  If you are unfamiliar with how to do that, here is a video that will guide you through the process.

Here are the class codes for each section:

Spanish CPA: Period 3: f4zarn7

Spanish A2: Period 5: dzs2jw6

Spanish A2: Period 6: 42c3dbo

Spanish A1: Period 7: mwftfe3

Once you have joined your class, please follow the directions there to open a Señor Wooly account and you can get started on that assignment.  

I will be posting new assignments each day on Google classroom. Please get in the habit of logging onto our class page once a day. 

I really miss everybody and am looking forward to working with you in this new way.  Please reach me by Remind or my school email if you have any questions or need help with anything. 

¡Cuídense mucho (Take care) y hasta pronto!

Mrs. Román
