Friday’s Google Meet

We’ll be meeting again on Friday at 11:00. This week we’ll have a PET SHOW. Bring your dog, cat, parrot, chicken, snake or even your pet rock! If you don’t have a real pet be ready to share what pet you would like to have one day and why you think it would make a neat pet!

We’re going to have a surprise visitor (of course!) and Miss Trish and Declan will also be joining us. Miss Trish brought Declan (a dog from KPETS) to our room several times each month to spend time with our class! I would love for the kids to be prepared to tell Miss Trish thank you, why they enjoyed the visits, or what they enjoyed doing together!

Wear your house shirt to earn some extra points for your house!

Here are some Google Meet reminders, however I think we’re all experts by now!

When you click the link, you will be asked for a nickname. Please type your child’s first name ONLY. I will need to “accept” your child into the meeting, so please give me a minute. I’ll be in our meet room around 10:50 to begin letting you in.

A few tips to help you navigate Google Meet

When the video function is enabled, we are basically looking into your home. Please be sure  that all family members are clothed and the background is suitable for viewing.

When someone talks or makes noise, you will see his/her picture on the screen. You can imagine with all of us in separate homes, there will likely be a lot of noises (dogs barking, siblings talking, microwaves beeping, etc.) which will make the screen keep jumping.

Please mute your microphone by clicking the microphone icon on the bottom of your screen. If you are on a computer and don’t see it, hover your mouse arrow near the bottom and a gray  stripe will pop up on your screen.

If you want to turn your video off, you can click the video camera at the bottom of the screen. If you do this we won’t be able to see your smiling face!

If you wish to leave the meeting, you click the red phone at the bottom. If you accidentally leave the meeting, just go back to the link and re enter the same way you joined the first time.

If you have a question for me at any time about how to navigate something, there is a chat box on the right margin. If you type in that box, it will pop up, and I can answer your question.

I’m excited to see you on Friday!!
