Ms. Davis' Class
This is Ms. Davis, your child’s 5th grade teacher. We know these are unusual times and we are all doing our best to keep ourselves and our children and families safe. We want to support you by keeping your child at home while still receiving quality instruction at a distance. There’s a big learning curve for all of us regarding teaching and learning online, but we are doing the best we can to keep your child engaged while keeping in mind your daily struggles as a parent and any additional responsibilities your child may have at home due to this health crisis. There’s no right way of teaching at a distance, but we want to make it easier by giving you some information on Google Classroom.
Google Classroom will be our learning platform. This gives us the opportunity to post lesson slideshows and assignments, host virtual meetings through Google Meets, and engage in online discussions through Google Chats and Google Docs. We know that everyone is going through a transitional period and our hope is that students complete their work independently.
If students have questions, encourage them to reach out to me through my email. We are here to support them (and you) through this transition to remote learning. It is really important that students check their assignments daily, as possible, on their Google Classroom website and/or through their Gmails. There will be a weekly posting with assignments posted on Mondays by 8am and students are expected to complete the work on Friday by 3pm.
Please review this information with your child. If you need me, please contact me via email at any time at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can set up a time for a phone or video call during my office hours.
