Hello, I am an avid user of Google Classroom. It was a game changer for me! I have all my year documented and I can reflect on what worked and what did not. Once the year ends, I can take out the assignments that did not and make a copy (template) of the ones that did. I am then ready for the next year! This is just one of the perks of Google Classroom. There are many more.

I live in my google classroom. It allows everyone to communicate with students daily, the helicopter parents the ability to get notifications to know what’s going on in class, and share my class with colleagues who will teach the class with me. Acts as a saving grace when kids tell parents about missing assignments. Puts a time stamp on when assignments are turned in or if they’re turned in.

I love it! I use it to post games and tutorials for math and science. I love that I can make a google form for a quiz or exit ticket and see the data from it immediately (and no grading for me!)

I love the new classwork feature they have. My students don’t have to scroll through the stream anymore. They can go to the classwork page and all assignments are grouped by the label. Also when students asked what they missed I just tell them the assignment number instead of finding the handout and making sure I have an extra copy and no one cal lose assignments

As a teacher and a parent, I love it. We had lots of snow days this year, so when we were home for a week and falling behind, I posted a few activities that we were going to do anyway. On the parent side, I can see what assignments my son has to do and when they should be done. That way, I know what homework to be looking for without helicoptering.

I really like Google classroom. It has definitely cut down on the number of paper copies I make. I can post texts for students to use and safe links for them to visit. I do wish it had a way for me to uncheck when a student says they have completed an assignment. Some of my kids check an assignment as complete just so their parents aren't alerted to their missing work.

So I have a question....I teach middle school math, how do I incorporate students showing their work/working out problems with the online assignments?

Honestly, most times if it is a worksheet, my kids will print it (or I print it) and it is submitted by hand. But having it accessible online helps for the kids who lose things, were absent, etc. But they can also take photos of their work and insert them in a doc if you want them to submit online

Do the support staff (speech, OT, PT, social work, etc.) give you a schedule or email ahead about visiting your classroom. Sometimes they all show up at once and it's really disruptive.

Our school uses Foss Kits for Science and I was told when students return, we will need to sanitize all items before and after each use. This doesn’t seem possible in a middle school setting where each period has a 4 minute break and 25 students in each period. What do you do in your classroom to minimize the amount of work needed to clean and sanitize items. I don’t want to short change the students’ hands-on experiences.
