For "Virtual Schedule Students" and their Parents,
PLEASE KEEP UP TO DATE ON CLASS DOJO. CLASS DOJO WILL BE MY MAIN FORM OF COMMUNICATION.
IF YOU ALREADY HAD A CLASS DOJO ACCOUNT FROM A PREVIOUS SCHOOL YEAR, I ADDED YOUR CHILD TO MY CLASS DOJO.
IF YOU'RE NEW to CLASS DOJO, PLEASE DOWNLOAD THE APP AND CREATE A PARENT ACCOUNT.
I SENT OUT ALL INVITES. IF YOU HAVE NOT RECEIVED THE INVITE, PLEASE EMAIL ME AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
Talk about going on a new adventure! I'm glad we'll be doing this together. I'll be keeping you updated as the week progresses. The first thing I'd like to stress to you is, we truly are "in this together". This is all new to me, you and your kiddos but in the end, it'll all come together...eventually. ;)
Recommendations for my "Virtual Schedule Students":
1. Make sure all is ready with your child's Chromebook. Use the QR Code that was given to you when you picked up their Chromebook. I suggest getting a lanyard to hook the QR Code badge to for safekeeping. You could also take a picture of it, for a backup, in case it gets lost. The student can also log in with their student email (username) and student lunch number (password) if they no longer have the QR Code. Have them practice logging on to their Chromebook and into "Clever"; which is where you'll find their "Google Classroom". Also, have them practice using their Chromebook so they become more familiar and comfortable with how it works.
2. Supplies: To start, I only ask you have paper to write on, a notebook to use as a Writing Journal, and pencils. I'll often have them do handwritten responses to continue pencil to paper interaction. Also, if you want to get a wireless mouse, it will make using the Chromebook easier for them. I also suggest a plastic sheet cover with a blank white piece of paper inside to use as a whiteboard (OR a whiteboard), dry erase markers, and a stylus.
