Welcome to 2nd grade in C.U.B.S. Cove! STEAMING AHEAD with Critical thinking through science and math. Learning is our goal!
- 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.
Distance Learning Information!
Each student will be sent an invitation to their student portal to access my Google Classroom. All assignments will be posted on GoogleClassroom. To get there go to Marion County Public Schools website. Click on the MCPSdesktop icon in the top right corner. Then input students user name and password to access the student portal. They all use the portal at school to get on I-Ready so they should all know how to get on. I have included the instructions for your information as well.
I will be available each day from 9:30-10:30am and again from 1:00-2:00 pm. This means I will be online monitoring my email in case you have any questions. You may email me any time you have questions as I am sure I will be checking in often. Dojo is the best way to reach me, I get a notification with each entry. I may also be posting guided lessons by video or doing a live Zoom activity at those times. I will post a message if I am doing one of those lessons. I will also send a Zoom invitation to each student's email address on their student portal.
There are several ways to turn in assignments. You may scan it directly to my email address. Brenda.email@example.com or you may take a picture and send it as an attachment as long as I can read the work. You may also send it to me on Google Classroom. I will send directions on how to do that. They do not want any papers returned to school directly due to Covid19.
For those with no online access there will be second grade packets of work available at the school for pick up. These papers also must be returned electronically for grades.
Students will be receiving grades on all assignments.
Their first reading assignment is a project on MyOn so I will be able to see that they are working on it each day. I can also see that they are doing their I-ready minutes and reading minutes on MyOn. I- ready lessons will count toward their grade. Please keep in mind I- ready lessons are on your child’s tested reading level, not necessarily on 2nd grade level.
Prodigy is another method where I will assign additional practice and activities. They will receive an weekly grade from their assigned activity.
I will be turning in attendance each day electronically. It would make my life easier if you all would just send me a daily dojo since everyone is connected with me.
Stay tuned for more information. We will get through this together! I miss all of my tiger cub family but we need to do what is best for everyone to stay healthy and safe! Please, please, please don't hesitate to email me if you have any questions or concerns or you just don't understand the technology.
