Mrs. Gwin's Homepage!
5th Grade is the Best!
We are experiencing an opportunity to learn how to do things in a new way! Please check this website for updated information, as schedules and assignments will be posted regularly. I want to begin by saying that I miss all of you, but am still thankful that we can stay connected. Please feel free to contact me during normal business hours with any questions or concerns.
Parents, Please make sure that your student is checking in with me each morning at 10 A.M. If they are not able to get on Zoom, please have them text me (352) 322-7763, email me firstname.lastname@example.org, or say Hi to me on Google Classroom. Attendance is required daily. I will be marking them absent for the day if they have not checked in with me by 11:00. I am also giving instruction at 10 A.M. on Zoom, so it is to their benefit that they make every attempt to join those meetings. This is for every student in my homeroom and in Ms. Harness' homeroom. Thank you for all your help.
The link for the students to check in with me each morning (10:00-10:30 A.M) is now only posted on my stream page on the Google Classroom. Due to hackers getting into zoom meetings it is safer not to post the link where they might have access to it. Please have students go to Google Classroom and join the meeting from the link posted there.
This code will be able to be used daily, just have the students click on the link or put them into the browser to get to the site were the meetings are held, then they can click to join the group. If their device does not have audio, just have them use the chat button to type in that they are present and any questions they may have.
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.
All of my ELA/Social Studies students (whether they are in Ms. Harness' homeroom or mine) will need to check in with me daily. I will have a meeting time each morning for my students to join a zoom meeting where I can take attendance and go over the assignments for the day. This time period will be from 10:00-11:00 A.M. Please be on time. If you do not make this time, please email me, Robin.Gwin@marion.k12.fl.us, or message me on Google Classroom, and let me know that you saw the assignment and are working. I will post the meeting link here each day. You can either click on the link or type the URL address into your browser.
I will also be available Monday-Friday after the zoom meeting until 2 P.M. You may contact me by phone 352-322-7763 or by my email. I have encouraged students to reach out with questions as they have them.
I have set up Google Classroom, you are encouraged to find all your lessons for each day/week there. I will be posting the links for textbooks and other assignments on that site. When you go into your desktop, look for the link across the bottom that says Google Apps. You can then click into Google classroom. You will need to make sure that the student email and password is used to sign into the classroom. It tends to default back to the main user of the app.
I will update information as we go so check back every few days.
