Thursday - Students work on their Google Calendars. You must add a new calendar called "Birthdays", including the birthdays (with yearly reminders) of all your closest friends and family members. Then, in your default calendar, add an appointment for showing me your calendar tomorrow during class (with a reminder 10 minutes before). Also, add the Kane County Cougars schedule (baseball, minor league) to your calendar. Tomorrow you will have to show me that you can turn the Calendar on and off.
Wednesday - Today students reviewed the basic computer terms from January by playing the "Scatter" game (hint: use the Archives in the righthand side bar to view blog posts from January). Then students created a Google calendar, adding birthdays (recurring every year, with reminders) of all the special people in their lives (eh-hem; mine is Feb 10). As always, blog about your day.
Tuesday - Today is a Website work day. Students add to their blogs, clean up any design flaws, check for typos or unnecessary stuff (example: buttons), and make sure that it is organized logically. Remember: you can change the order of pages (and make subpages) using the "Pages" tab at the top.
Monday - The big day is finally here. Today we will have the first of 3 speed assessments in Typing. Grading scale is on the right. Today's timed writing will be "Cat in the Hat". You will have 3 chances to complete it; when you finish each attempt (3 minutes each), take a Snip of the entire screen and upload it to your shared folder in Google drive.
