Mrs. Martinee Avery

Welcome back! 

I am excited to begin the 4th quarter with our class as I have missed everyone so much! As we start the 4th Quarter, I will be posting all of our 4th Quarter lessons, presentations, notes, and assignments to our Google Classroom. 

Google Classroom- Class code 4ussb4b

Each student should have received an email through their google email about joining google classroom. If they haven’t joined already please go in and join. However, If your student is unsure about how to join or use Google Classroom, please take a moment to watch this short video. How to Sign-in to Google Classroom and Access Materials. Each day of the school week, your child will need to log in and go to google classroom.  

What do I do once I’m in Google Classroom?

Once in google classroom, your child will need to click on classwork. All assignments to be turned in will be listed under the date the assignment was given. The material for each day will be posted at 8:30 a.m. It is beneficial to view the recorded lesson before the students’ assigned small group time; however, the videos can be viewed anytime. One encore lesson (Spanish, PE, Art, Music, Media) will be listed each week for your student to complete at their convenience. 

Small Group/ Live instruction on Google Classroom

We will have live small group meetings between 10:30-11:30 daily. Each student will attend one live session of reading and one live session of math per week. These meetings will occur at the same time weekly and will not last more than 30 minutes each. Fridays will focus on writing and vary with small groups on an as needed basis. 

First Small Group- Google Meet Session

Parents will be receiving a separate email today inviting students to their first small group session. Small group sessions will start on Wednesday, April 15th and continue on Thursday, April 16th.  A link for the student’s session will be emailed to parents, put on google classroom, and sent to the student’s gmail account. Our first meetings this week will be informal and an introduction to our new classroom environment. I will review expectations and procedures with students in small groups using our new virtual platform. Please check for your small group email invitation and have your student join at his or her scheduled time.  

Classroom Communication

It is going to be very important that your student check his or her PCPS GMail account and our Google Classroom at least once a day. These will be the primary ways that I will communicate during the 4th quarter. Of course you can still email me at martinee.avery@poquoson.k12.va.us if you have any questions. 

Office Hours

I will have daily office hours where I will be available to help your student or answer any questions you may have. My office hours will be Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m to 10:30 a.m. During this time, I will keep my email open and respond to questions immediately. You may email me anytime outside of this as well, just know the response may not happen as quickly.  

Be on the Lookout

As mentioned above, I will send a separate email to parents this evening inviting students to their small group session. I will also include a schedule for their small group sessions. Please don’t hesitate to email me if you have any additional questions or concerns. I realize this is different and new, and I am excited to learn and experience this new journey through education with all of you. 

 

Sincerely,

Mrs. Avery
