Planning lessons and end of the year field trips, report cards, parent conferences, PARCC, we are all busy and struggling to fit everything in. GMail's Boomerang and the new Schedule Feature in Google Classroom will make your life easier! Boomerang is a Chrome Extension (available free in the Chrome Web Store) that allows you to write an email now and pre-set the date and time of when you want it sent. Want to email parents concerning an upcoming assessment or field trip? But you don't want to send it until Monday morning? You can write it now and Boomerang will send it automatically at the time you select! You can even use it to send yourself a reminder!
Google Classroom has added a feature that allows you to write the assignment now but it will not post until the date and time you select. Plan now and your schedule will be less hectic and stressed!
Do you use Google Classroom for homework assignments? You can also share a Google Classroom calendar with parents. Parents can then check your calendar to review assignments or homework due dates. No more emailing you to find out about homework!
