Mrs. Watkins Class

  •    

    Welcome  to Mrs.Watkins' Teacher Page.   

      
    Attention Students:  I have set up my google classroom to invite you to join my class.  If you have not joined, please login to google.com using your Riverside username and password. Click on the 9 square icon (the waffle icon) in the upper right hand corner of the Google webpage to find Google Classroom. Once there, please find your ELA class and click 'join'. 
     
     
    Attention Parents:  Please consider accepting my invitation for you to enroll in a text alert system for our ELA classes.  The system is called Remind 101.  It allows us to send reminders or important information that is happening in our class/school, such as important deadlines, helpful information, etc.  To enroll for our class updates, please download the Remind app on your cellphone and join a class by sending a text with the information that I will provide you with at the beginning of the 2022/2023 school year.
     
    If your child is absent for any reason, they can go to their ELA Google Classroom. Under the 'Classwork' tab, they will see a topic titled, "Daily Lesson".  It is there that they can find the assignments they missed.  This is updated regularly.  It is the student's responsibility to make up any missed assignments.  They are now able to access their anthology and Reading Writing Companion (RWC) online via the clever portal.   If they are absent and do not have their packets (spelling/grammar, etc.), they can be picked up at the school prior to dismissal. Please call the school prior to coming to pick the items up so that we can have their materials ready.
     
    All homework assignments will be posted in Google Classroom under the 'classwork' tab and can be found under 'Daily Lesson' topic.
     
    Students are able to access the Wonders Anthology and the Reading/Writing Companion (RWC) via the Clever portal from home. They have been instructed how to use the portal.  All Spelling/Grammar/ Vocabulary and any other instructional materials (such as class notes) can be accessed through Google Classroom under "Weekly Materials". 
     
    Second quarter parent/teacher conferences will be held on Thursday, February 2nd from 2:00 pm to 7:00 pm. Below is the link to Sign-up Genius where you can choose a time slot.  Meetings can be held either virtually or in-person, but all meetings must be scheduled through the link below.  If you choose to meet in-person with me, please sign up through Sign-up Genius and then email me at jwatkins@riversidesd.com  letting me know your intention to meet in-person and the time you choose.
