Great job today 5A with your work and practice on Google Docs. Today we discussed 
  1. how to create a Google Doc on Google Drive
  2. how to use MLA Format in your document
  3. how to create the perfect heading that is not only easy on the eyes, but academically acceptable 
  4. how to copy and paste using your mouse and by using shortcuts
    1. to copy use Ctrl + C
    2. to paste use Ctrl + V
I also ask every one to practice their typing skills by typing your name 20x and Corpus Christi School 20x. 

Keep practicing your typing skills every day to get better!

Greetings & Salutations!

Today you selected your Chromebooks and assigned your Google Account to it. This is the start to an amazing adventure in STEM & Makerspace Fun. Here are a few things to remember as we move forward into the school year:

  1. Always remember your Username and Password

    1. If you do NOT have an email, please let me know ASAP

      1. EMAIL should be first initial + last name + corpuschristschool.net

      2. Example: John Doe’s email is jdoe@corpuschristischool.net

  2. If you CANNOT remember your email PASSWORD, please

    1. Try it first - maybe you put a capital letter in there

    2. Try it again

    3. Let me know

  3. Remember your Chromebook Number, because that’s your Device for the 2017-2018 school year.

  4. Check your emails on a regular basis

    1. You’ll never know from who or when an email is coming your way

    2. Remember that you CAN connect your School Account to your personal electronic devices, because it is run by GMAIL (GOOGLE).

  5. Familiarise yourself with Google Applications, including: Google Drive, Google Docs, Gmail, Google Slides, Google Sheets, Google Forms, Google Translate, Google Earth, Etc.

  6. Be RESPONSIBLE with your account.

    1. Remember Spider-Man: “with great powers come greater responsibilities.”

    2. If you abuse this responsibility, privileges may be taken away, and we don’t want that.

  7. Be Inspired and have FUN

Welcome to your CCS Makerspace. It’s an absolute pleasure to have met your class, and truly look forward to working with each and every one of you. Please remember these four (4) rules as we embark on this adventurous ride together filled with educational-fun, imagination and inspiration: In this class...

  • We ALL have the right to learn. NO ONE has the right to interrupt or waste OUR time.

  • We ALL have the right to be ourselves. NO ONE has the right to laugh at us or hurt our feelings.

  • We ALL have the right to hear and be heard. NO ONE has the right to keep us from being heard when it is our turn to speak.

  • We ALL have the right to be safe, and to have our belongings be safe. NO ONE has the right to make us feel afraid, or to damage or take our belongings.
