A few weeks ago my friend Megan Hume delivered a great PD on Google Classroom to our Kindergarten colleagues, and that inspired me to write this post about how it has been helpful for me teaching a combined K/1 class.
Why Google Classroom?
- It has helped me collaborate with my two grade level teams during this remote learning experience by having shared grade-level classrooms. I also love being able to reuse relevant posts, because certain things (such as read-alouds and letter sound resources) are great for both Kindergarten and Grade 1.
- Scheduling posts helps ease my mind about forgetting to post something on a certain day, and helps make things more predictable for families.
- Being able to reuse posts means that I can easily share these resources with parents in future classes that I teach.
