Did your co-teacher create a great assignment on Google Classroom that you would like to share with your students?  Are you an EL or Special Education who would like to make modifications to a Google Classroom assignment for your students but don’t want to alter the original?  Or do you simply want to use that quiz you created for your first period class with your second period class? Don’t reinvent the wheel, learn how to do all of this by simply using the “Reuse Post” feature in Google Classroom!  To see how, check out THIS tutorial.
AT A LOSS FOR A WORD?
If you’re having trouble figuring out which vocabulary words you should be teaching or previewing from a particular text, check out the Academic Word Finder.  Simply copy and paste the text directly into the tool, select the grade level of your students, and you will automatically receive a list of academic vocabulary words found in the text (along with their definitions)!  The tool even categorizes the words, indicating which are on grade level, below grade level, and above grade level, so that you can then cater your word lists to your students needs.
AN EASY TRANSFER
Transferring students from one RAZ Kids account to another? If you have recently started using the RAZ Kids platform and  are interested in moving a student or group of students from their current RAZ Kids classroom into yours, it’s very easy. Just follow the easy steps in THIS tutorial to learn how!
