Google Meets today!

Good morning people! Great work yesterday. I haven't looked at your letters yet but will try to reply to them all by the end of today.

We will have short Google Meets again this morning, just to check in with each other. Grade 6s at 10 am and Grade 7s at 11 am. I will post the links to Google Classroom, like I did last week.

I've been experimenting with a Chrome extension called Screencastify, that allows me to quickly create explanatory videos. I made one to further explain the Grade 7 math yesterday, and I also made one to help one of you get logged into Gizmos. This is a really great tool... going forward please let me know if you are having trouble with anything (either tech related or subject related) and I can quickly create one of these videos to try to help.

Someone was also asking the best way to get a hold of me confidentially (without the rest of the class seeing). Email is always good, but several of you have also been "adding private comments" to your Docs and that works too. I will be notified right away and can reply to you there.

That's all folks. I'll leave you with our latest IXL stats... let's shoot for 10,000 questions answered by the end of this week!

Looking forward to seeing you in our Meets.

Mr. H.

It's important that we keep in touch!

Send me an email at

I will be checking emails between 9 and 3:30 on "school days." If you need some face-to-face help, we can schedule a Google Hangout... just shoot me an email to set one up!


I will also be setting up some times for us to meet as a class on Google Hangouts. I'll let you know when I have a schedule figured out!
