Ms. Rickey's ELA and Social Studies 4th & 5th

  • Welcome to East Marion distance learning!  Glad to have you all back in virtual space. 


    All 5th graders must check in daily before 10:00 am with me via email (Click here to email Ms. Rickey) and tell me what assignment(s) you are working on each day. 


    Assignments and lessons, for 4th and 5th grade, will be posted on Google Classroom (on the student portal).  Please check daily.  Stay tuned for daily assignments, programs, and class codes to access your assignments.

    I will be available for immediate communication and questions from 9:00-10:00 am and 1:00-2:00 pm.  However, parents may email me at anytime with comments, questions, or concerns.  My Class Dojo is up and running so that I can also communicate through that avenue.  We are going to have a great time learning together.

    Should you need technology help, the District has set up a help line @ 352.867.2100.  Help is available Monday through Friday from 7:30 am - 4:30 pm.


    Marion County Public Schools may record online classroom sessions utilizing third-party platforms (Zoom, Google Classroom, etc.).  These recordings will only be used for educational purposes and may be shared on other learning platforms.  If you do not want your child’s image or identifying information recorded, utilize your device/platform controls to stop the camera feed from your device.

  • DAILY TO-DO LIST:  Due to your teacher's trouble with your assignments last week, you will have to do those two again.  I had to change some forms and documents.  I am sorry, but rereading is good for your brain (and you have heard me say that before).
