This year I will be using Google Classroom to keep students engaged within an online classroom community! Our school is using Clever as a one stop sign in for students to make sure that students are using the time toward maximizing their own academic success!
- To enroll in our Google Classroom, students must (i) have or create their Clever account, (ii) go to Google Classroom and (iii) select “join class” and (iv) enter the code that corresponds with their class and period (for directions of how to log in and/or create an accout in Clever please visit my "important information page")
Helping your student at home
Please keep in mind that this time is not about you knowing each subject and helping the student to do their work, this time is about you showing that you are interested in their education, helping your students get organized, providing a quiet place for the students to do their work, monitoring the students work to make sure is completed and praising their efforts.
Here are some tips to get you started:
- Talk with your student, let the student know that education is important and that the school work should be done
- Set a time for your students to complete assignments, have the student participate in the creation of the schedule and follow-up on that every day. It is helpful to write the schedule and posted at home in a visible place at home where everyone can see it.
- Remove all distractions, turn off the TV, and other devices that might distract the student during study time.
Student’s assignments overview
Your student will have assignments to complete daily and these assignments are to turn in for evaluation/feedback. In a language class we read, write, listen and speak therefore we will be covering all of these areas.
The following are your weekly work instructions and all work must be completed in Spanish:
Writing: Your student must keep a journal and have an entry for every day that students are not at school (half to one page per day (write about your day, what did you do, how do you feel, people, food...etc)
Reading: The students must select three readings per week and complete the activities for each reading and/or choice board . Readings are posted under classwork/materials in our google classroom.
Listening: Listen to two songs in Spanish per week and write key vocabulary and the main idea per song in Spanish. I will also add listening activities to google forms to complete.
Speaking: If your student has the opportunity to speak Spanish please have them practice the language :) I will be posting flipgrids tasks so I can see your student speaking Spanish
Vocabulary practice: Students will use their vocabulary and activities from the choice board, graphic organizer and BOOM cards to practice vocabulary. Students can also access my wiki to practice vocabulary using quizlet.
