    ASSIGNMENTS

    We will see our assigned work in Google Classroom, on the students desktop, from now on. You will click each assignment for that week in each subject. There will be (assignment) Song categories that will help with memorization of our skills. You may access songs for many weeks. If you see assignments that say EXTRA, it will not be graded, yet it is good additional practice if there is need. On the bottom of this page there are also printable extras if you would like to utilize those materials as well. We will continue using our student desktop’s through this distance learning time.

    HOW TO ACCESS GOOGLE CLASSROOM

    MAKE SURE YOU ARE NOT IN YOUR PERSONAL GOOGLE ACCOUNT! YOU MUST LOG IN WITH YOUR STUDENTS EMAIL (first name.last name@marionstudents.net).

    SOME COMPUTERS ARE DEFAULTING TO PARENTS PERSONAL GOOGLE ACCOUNTS!

    1. Your child’s assignments will show on the screen. The files he/she will need for each assignment will be attached at the bottom of each subject section. Each assignment sheet is interactive for your child to type answers on. They will need help with this. Parent help with typing answers is absolutely fine. This allows your child’s work to be saved on the computer so you won’t need to take pictures and text work to me!!! Yay!
