Google Classroom Assignments for this week

This week's assignments are like last week's, except they will be for a grade. All of them are in google classroom:


Participation Grade (completion grade):


  • Daily Warm up: The warm ups will be like the ones from last week, (3-4 minutes piece). Use your school id to log in to edpuzzle, sing with the video and answer a question. 12 points a piece for completion. You must submit the question to receive credit.
  • Sightreading factory: Log in to Sightreading factory and complete two of the exercises. A "how to" videos are in Google classroom for both rhythm and singing assignments. Due Tuesday and Thursday. They are less than a minute a piece. 20 points a piece for completion.


Video upload (competency grade):

  • Upload a video of yourself singing the daily thirds exercise. The grading rubric and criteria are in google classroom. Video due Friday (approx 1 minute). I must see your handsigns.




Parents can join the google classroom. Email me and I will send you an invitation.

Checklist for this week

  • Watch the video Mr. Jesse created to help you with organizing this new platform

  • Watch the videos I have provided in google classroom so you do the assignment correctly.

  • CONTACT YOUR TEACHERS if you have any issues via email, googleclassroom or their google voice number.

  • Look at your calendar in googleclassroom to help organize your due dates.

  • Do the daily warmups every day, not in clumps. They are made to be done daily and it is better for your voice to do them daily. You do not have to look at the screen until you answer the question. It is a great way to start your day or take a break from other work. They are 3 - 4 minutes and you are SINGING!!!!

  • Breathe....it will be ok.
