Welcome to Mrs. Besser's 2nd grade class!
Families can pick up their child's personal belongings this week. Pick up for 2nd graders is Tuesday, May 26. Parents may come through the car line between 8:30 - 11:00 and noon - 2:00.
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.
Paper packets can be picked up for the new week beginning each Monday. They are available outside the front office 8am - 2pm Monday through Thursday. Email pictures to me if you are using a paper packet.
I have added photos to our class photo gallery at the bottom of this page. If you email me a picture of you working, I will happily add it to the gallery! See you online!
Welcome to my virtual classroom!
Although we are unable to be on our school campus currently, we can learn no matter where we are!
My virtual office hours are 9:30-10:30am and 1:30-2:30pm. However, outside of those hours I will still respond as quickly as possible via Class Dojo message or my email address firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also call or text me at 352-462-3079.
As the district moves to this format of educating for the forseeable future, I will be using this platform more for communication and posting assignments for your child's education. Also, please continue to check for posts or messages in the ClassDojo app.
A summary of the topics we are learning each week will be provided in the Assignments section.
I have set up a Google Classroom as this will be the method of delivering instruction. Here you will be able to complete and submit assignments.
Click the Google Classroom icon on your student desktop or classroom.google.com.
Sign in using the student's email login and password. In the upper right hand corner, select the "+" sign and select "Join Class".
Use the access code: o42kics
Now you are into the new virtual classroom.
If a paper packet of the assigned work is preferred, please know that every Monday the next week's packet will be available outside the front office.
Although new packets will be available each Monday, it can be picked up throughout the week between 8am - 2pm. The school is completely closed on Fridays.
As this is a new for all of us; this website may change. Any changes will be announced on this page.
Thank you for your patience throughout this time.
Students, please know that you are missed, but I look forward to seeing you online!
i-Ready is our online learning resource that meets students where they are as far as ability. Students need to spend 45-50 minutes per week on i-Ready Reading and an additional 45-50 minutes on Math. Remember, we are working towards passing each lesson!
MyOn is our online library. It is full of great books at all reading levels. I encourage you to have your child read stories at their level everyday for at least 20 minutes. Reading daily is important and is an expectation during our time away from campus. Students may utilize MyOn or read traditional books independently or with an adult.
