😊 CONGRATULATIONS to the following students who have completed all their assignments for the month of April in STEMscopes! If your name is not listed below and you believe you have completed all of your assignments, go to your STUDENT PORTAL and check your graded assignments in SKYWARD to see the assignment(s) that you have not completed. Then go into STEMscopes and click on that assignment to complete and submit. Even if it is just a video or game assignment, you still need to complete the assignment. You must complete the full time necessary in completing that assignment to get the full grade (8-10 minutes). Just clicking in and clicking out does not complete the assignment. If you have any questions, please email me and I will be glad to help! :0)

*** PROGRAM CHANGE *** PLEASE READ ***
🙂 Many of you are having problems viewing the videos that I had assigned through Google Classroom. So, I've chosen another program called STEMScopes! You can access STEMScopes from your STUDENT PORTAL. Make sure you are using GOOGLE CHROME and in YOUR STUDENT GOOGLE ACCOUNT and not on your home google account. Otherwise, you won't be able to see your assignments. To make sure you are in YOUR Google account, you will need to: Open google drive under the school portal located at the top right side of your screen. You will see 9 black dots in a square. Open the classroom from there. This will allow your school account to open your Google Classrooms and STEMScope.
(See picture below)
😊 Next, go to the bottom of your screen and click on PROGRAMS. Click on the STEMScope tile. This will take you to your Science Class. There you will find all of your Science assignments, quiz' and assessments, as well as more videos, fun activities, and SCIENCE GAMES!!!! Remember, you only need to do 1 assignment in Science per week. You CAN do more if you want, just don't neglect your other subjects. These assignments will be graded, so be sure to do your best and look back in the texts and videos if you are unsure of your answers.
🙂 BE SURE TO INCLUDE DETAILS FROM THE TEXT OR VIDEO TO COMPLETE YOUR ANSWERS. This will show me that you understand the concept of the question being asked. For instance: "I believe climate change is bad for the polar bears because..." --- and then you need to complete the sentence by using what you learned from the text or video to tell me why you believe climate change is bad for the polar bears! (Look back in the text or video if you need to.)
😊 To get into your other classes, go back to your STUDENT PORTAL and click on GOOGLE CLASSROOM. You will see your other teacher’s classrooms that you can click on to get started on those subjects!
🙂 BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR STUDENT EMAIL AND YOUR TEACHER'S WEBSITES EVERY DAY for messages and updates from your teachers. Your student email is located on your student portal by clicking on OFFICE 365 and then click on OUTLOOK. Your username and password are the same ones that you used to get on your portal. Your TEACHER'S WEBSITES are located at Reddick-Collier's Elementary School webpage under Teacher's Webpages.
JUST FOR FUN, you will find YOUTUBE.COM Science Experiment video's downloaded on my website under COOL SCIENCE EXPERIMENTS! I know you will enjoy watching these videos and conducting different experiments at home! PLEASE ~ BE SURE TO HAVE AN ADULT PRESENT WHEN YOU CONDUCT THESE EXPERIMENTS.
I'm looking forward to reading the responses to your assignments and hearing all about your experiences with the experiments that you conduct at home. Until we are able to be together again at RCE...
Stay Safe, Stay Well, & Stay Curious!
~ Ms. Hill 🙂
