STUDENTS…WOULD YOU LIKE TO EARN 250 HOUSE POINTS???

 

If you would like an opportunity to propel your house into possible championship status, consider completing the attached review of 7th grade. I have also placed it on google classroom. If you complete it with at least 30 of the 51 problems correct, you will earn 250 house points. You will need to enter your answers into the google form for grading and submit your work either through Kami and google classroom or email a scanned image of your work or take pics and email to me. We are developing a plan to celebrate the house champions now. You have until Friday at 5:00 pm to submit your work.

 

Let’s do this Bulldogs!!

Lesson for Tuesday, 3/17

  1. Warm up: 10 minutes of IXL Diagnostics (“step into the arena”)
  2. IXL Lessons: 50 minutes of practice within your diagnostic recommendations.
  3. For students using books, complete the day 2 assignments.

 

Post Monday, 3/16

Option 1 (preferred method for distance learning as I can monitor this and feedback is immediate):

Students are expected to work a minimum of 30 minutes per day on their own, Monday-Friday, on IXL using the links to the GA standards. Students must make an 80 or better Smart Score on each standard that they choose to practice. I will be monitoring their practice and communicating with them individually to guide their practice. If I notice a weakness or a particular area that they need to focus on, I will assign that to them on the website. 

 

Option 2 (primarily for those who do not have internet access or for those parents who would rather their child take a break from technology):

Students were all given a chart (download here: Math 7 GMAS homework review-1.xlsx) with specific daily assignments for them using the 2 booklets that they were given last week and instructed to take home. There are also IXL correlations to those assignments to support their learning if they are able to access internet and would like a combination of paper and web based lessons. All work will be turned in. 

Thank you for your support! Let me know if you have any questions. Also, if you need help as you are learning and would like to speak with me, please email me your phone number and I will call you as soon as I can.

 

 

This year is going to be FANTASTIC! I am beginning my 27th year of teaching and love middle school!! Developing relationships is of utmost importance as I strive to create a classroom climate of respect in order to foster open communication. It is my personal goal for students to be able to find their individual voices to appropriately express themselves so that they may maximize their potential by taking ownership of their learning. Through a partnership with parents, we can help students achieve in ways they did not even know they could. I will observe and assess your student and strive to give individual feedback daily. I believe that students should begin to advocate for themselves and realize that their individual voices are important. I encourage students to email me or speak with me to communicate their academic needs/concerns. Confidence building is key is preparing students for a successful high school experience! It is imperative for parents to know what to expect so that they can support their child at home. Grades need to be checked weekly at the very least to keep informed of any grade concerns. Please check here for a weekly overview of my lessons.
