Step 2 - Accessing Meet Link

For Computer (laptop or desktop)

  • Now that you are signed in, your student’s class should appear at the top of the page. If you are being asked to enter the class code, use the code we sent you in your welcome email.
  • Once you see the class, click on the Join button.
  • On the home page of your classroom, you will see the Stream which is where you will find updates and comments from your teacher and other students. This is also where you will find the link to your Google Meet live class. Please see the image below to locate the Meet link. Your student will only be able to join the live class if they are signed into the FLY account.

For Tablet or Smart Phone (iPad/iPhone)

    1. You MUST have BOTH the Google Classroom AND Google Meet apps downloaded from the app store.
    2. Open the Google Classroom app and go to the class you want to join the Meet. Click on the CAMERA button in the top right corner. (#1)
    3. You may be asked to enter a code. Please check your email for the code.
    4. Google Meet will open. If the teacher has opened the session, there will be a button to JOIN MEETING. If the button is NOT there and it asked you to enter a code, you must WAIT for the teacher to open the meet session. Try again later! Please note, you are entering the meet with the video ON! (#2)
    5. Once you join the meet you can control your microphone and video by touching your picture and turning the controls off or on. To leave the call click the HANG UP button. (#3)

Step 3 - Turning in Assignments

There are two ways to complete and hand in your worksheets.

One way is to print your worksheet, complete it and either scan it or take a photo of it. Save the image to your computer and turn it in using the tools on Google Classroom. Click here to view or print instructions on how to use this function.

The second way is to use Kami. This is an extension you add to your browser so you can complete the PDF worksheet without printing it. Click here for detailed instructions on how to use Kami.

How the Classroom works

We have structured our class so your student will have one or two live Google Meet classes a week (depending on the class).

We post a new lesson/s every week that will always include an instructional video, a book page, and an activity worksheet.

Your student’s teacher will be monitoring the class, answering questions, encouraging participation and just being available for the class outside of the Google Meet class time.

How to Use Google Classroom

Below is a very good and easy to understand tutorial on how to use Google Classroom. It goes over how to log into the site and where things are and what you can do in the classroom.

If you do not care for the presenter there are numerous other tutorials on You Tube that can show you how to use it. Your teacher will be in and out of the classroom, so please feel free to leave them a comment any time.
