Welcome to my class page! Learn more about me here.

In my class I use technology to enhance learning. Students use google products as well as teacher created interactive notebooks to engage learners. In my class I try to incorporate STEAM projects and truly enjoy learning from my students. In Social Studies I will be focusing on the Eastern Hemisphere (6th) and US History (7th & 8th). In ELA, I will be using Engage NY Modules that are linked to CCLS, utilizing academic and culturally diverse readings. I also focus on writing throughout all content areas with an emphasis on writing across the genres of Narrative, Informative and Persuasive writing.

8th:  10-11

I just wanted to let you know how I am going to structure my assignments:

-Each of the grades already have a Classroom Account, which we use often.  They will see a topic or title for the Day (For Example: TUESDAY 3.17) where they will find their work for that day.  I will provide feedback to the students so they will know what they can work on or something that will help them. They will also have the opportunity to ask me questions.

-I am in the process of setting up each classroom with work to be posted in there.  Please be patient as there might be glitches or issues that might arise and I will work with you and your children to make this a smooth transition.

All grades should be reading a pleasure reader daily for about 20 minutes.  If you have trouble locating materials for your child to read, please let me know and I will provide you with some resources.

6th ELA will have a daily “Flush” reading and/or activity and a “Reading Passage” along with questions for the children to fill out. This is for this week only.

7th Religion:  I will post a daily assignment and prayer activity for students to do on a daily basis.  They may be required to use their textbooks and either forms, docs or slides to complete their activities.  Students should continue to work on their Saint Projects for Confirmation. I am comitted to get them ready for their upcoming Sacrament.

8th ELA:  We will be working on some background information on Great Gatsby and using an online activity to demonstrate what they have learned.  I will post slides or videos to help students with their understanding. There will also be some vocabulary activities for them to complete.  We will also be working out of the Progress Book (the thicker one).

At some point, maybe later this week or if we are closed an extended period of time, I will ask 6,7 and 8th grade to use Google Hangout.  All of our students are aware of this tool, but I will provide assistance to those who are less comfortable with this system.  

Parents and students, please feel free to contact me via email through Option C or my work account cgomez@gscabk.org for any additional support you may need.  

Please do not feel overwhelmed with our current situation.  All of the Junior High School teachers are here to support your needs whether it is educational or just someone to speak to.  I will do my best to help your child in any way that he or she needs.  

I will continue to post information on the class webpage so you will have the same information (if not more) than we have during the entire year.  

Sincerely,

Mrs. Gomez

UPDATED AROUND 7:40 AM:  FOR GOOGLE HANGOUT:

The students should know what to do but just in case they don’t:

You log into your google account.  By your name or letter of your name in the upper right hand corner, there is a box with 9 little dots (3 rows, 3 columns).  Click on that and it will give you a drop down box.  From that box, your child needs to find the green hangout icon (it sort of looks like a speech bubble).  Your child will click on this icon.  Then click on join meeting.    They will click on video call, enter the meeting ID that I will provide with them right before the time of their conference.  They will have to enable their video and microphone.  I will send the students the call number on the google classroom page under the dates’ work.  I will call it Google Hangout.  This way the students will know where to go.  If you have any trouble, please let me know.
