I knew the second that I was told that I would be teaching Grade 6 next year that I would be using Google Classroom with my students.
I decided that in the first week of school I would introduce Classroom, get them to join our online Classroom and introduce a very simple but fun get to know you slideshow. First, I showed them my “All about me” Project and then showed them how to access theirs.
I made each student a template in which they could create their own “All about me” Project.
This is what it looks like in Classroom.
I only showed my students how to write in the slides and add pictures. I was amazed that some students were so excited about this that they figured out how to change the text colour, insert gif’s, and change the theme of the slides.
A great first project using Classroom!
*NOTE: Even though it says 6 are not done, they just forgot to turn them in.
