I'm so excited to tell you that my school district finally has access to Google Classroom!
The first thing I did was set up my "classrooms" and get my students to join. We have been using Edmodo so this was somewhat like joining a class there. This seems better than Edmodo though because it seems to organize things a bit better.
The next thing I did was to try a Google Quiz for our weekly vocabulary. I liked it a lot but it did not give the students their scores as a percentage. Instead, it would say something like 100/120. All day I was asked "But what is my grade?" Of course, it was a great mini-lesson in learning that a fraction says "divide" and that's how to figure out one's own grade, but I would prefer percentages too. I found a quick fix by using Flubaroo that gave me percentages even if the kids have to do the math!
I made this quiz using Google Forms and then assigned it to my students through Google Classroom by attaching it from my Google Drive. You can even assign the same thing to multiple classes all at once!
The next thing I am going to try is an online assignment I made. After we took our vocabulary quiz online, my students actually suggested that their vocabulary practice actually be digital too! So wish me luck with my first try this week!
Thanks for stopping by!
