The First Day of School


Attendance  Welcome to Lakeview Middle School! When I call your name, indicate that you are present and share a little about yourself. What elementary school do you come from? What's your favorite movie, book, or animal?  

Name Tag Activity  Let's make name tags so we can learn who we are. In the center of your name tag write your name largely and clearly. In the four corners or your name tag draw and illustrate symbols that represent your likes and interests. An example can be found below. It represents me, Matt, and my interest in writing, baseball, nature, and photography.  



Welcome to Google Classroom  Here at Lakeview Middle School technology is an integral part of the teaching and learning process. Google Classroom will be one of the important tools we use this year. Watch the video below to learn a little bit about how Google Classroom works.


Now let's get you set up. Head on over to Google Classroom. From there I will provide you with the class code you will need to get started. 

Student Survey  After you you join my Language Arts Google Classroom, you will find your first assignment: Getting to Know You - Student Survey. Click on it in order to open the assignment. The survey consists of a series of questions which allow me to get to know you better. Answer each question to the best of your ability. If you don't finish in class today, try to finish for homework. If you need a little extra time to finish, I will provide some at the beginning of class tomorrow. When you are finished, click on "Turn In" and you're done. 

Homework  Complete the Getting to Know You - Student Survey. Deadline: This assignment is due tomorrow, Friday, August 14
