Have you seen the new My BrainPop?

Our TAG teacher discovered My BrainPop today. It's included in the school subscription and allows teachers to create an account, add students, and track their assignments.

Check it out! Getting started with My BrainPop

You'll need to get the educator code for our campus. Contact Danielle, Shannon, or Nicole if you need the code.

2nd grade dives into Google Classroom

Second grade classes have started using Google Classroom. They LOVE the student gmail shortcut that allows them to paste their very long email instead of having to type it in (teachers love this too!).

Students added Google Classroom from the Chrome Store, joined their teacher's classroom, and were able to start working right away on their presentations.

Students worked on research and put together a Google Presentation to share what they've learned. Topics included animals, countries, or famous people. As the next step, students will share their presentations with their classmates to get feedback via digital comments.
