Welcome to Mrs. Millen's 5th Grade Distance Learning/Blended Classroom
I am so excited about the 2020/2021 school year. We will begin the school year as distance learning and then transfer into a blended model later in the school year.
**Looking forward to meeting all of you virtually on Monday, Aug. 10th at 8:10-8:15am on Google Meet.
Log onto your ClassLink and join our Google Classroom! Please click on join our classroom, I sent you an invite!
For right now, as you are preparing for the start of the school year, here are some suggested school supplies that will be necessary:
1. A computer with camera and microphone (I will need to see your face for attendance and see your white board to check your answers. I will also be calling on students to answer questions.)
2. Several spiral notebooks to take notes (1 for ELA, 1 for Math, 1 for Science/Social Studies, 1 for Misc.)
3. A whiteboard so I can check your answers.
These are just the basic essentials. Additional information to follow.
Please email me or send me a message on Remind if you have any questions. My goal is to respond to all emails or Remind texts within 24 hours. (See information below on how to signup for Remind)
Virtual office hours:
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday (2:00 - 2:30PM)
Wednesday (12:00 - 1:00PM)
Assignments, Feedback & Grading
All assignments will be posted on Google Classroom under the "classwork" tab. Students will be given written and/or voice feedback on assigments. All work is graded on a standards based scale of 4,3,2,1. Feedback and grades will be given in a timely manner.
4 - Exceeds standards
3 - Meets standards
2 - Approaching standard
1 - Not meeting standard
