google classroom takes off!
Google Classroom has been our school's online learning environment for a few years now, but it has really taken off during Learning from Home.
We are using it to post lessons and activities, classroom readings, videos, photos and audio recordings. Students and teachers are also using it to communicate with each other, supplemented by GMail and Google Meet.
Each classroom has their own Google Classroom area, and recent posts include:
Mrs G's video lessons on poetry and writing
Minnie's Storytime and Spelling videos
Kel's AUSLAN videos
Mrs Ireland's SMART Spelling and her reading of George's Marvellous Medicine
Julie's reading activities and texts
Audio recordings of Leon reading his story
Photos of food baked by Cash and Matilda
Students are using Google Classroom to ask questions about their work, and to give feedback on their Learning from Home experiences.
Take a look at Google Classroom if you haven't yet seen it! Your child has been given their log in details; please contact the school if they need help gaining access.
The Victorian Premiers' Reading Challenge is on! Your child has received log in details in their Learning Pack. Please visit our VPRC page for more information!
