In math, we have decided that since students are very far behind on the mosaic project, and the math practice is not happening very effectively, we will be ending the project tomorrow. We will take the mosaic picture as a completion grade, but, on Wednesday, we will begin working on covering the standards with more conventional means of practicing math. We plan to teach and practice a couple specific concepts for a week, then have a quiz or test to determine student understanding.
Students still need to have their final road trip project completed by Thursday. Students need to have a sketch of the US and all states that are included in their road trip on a poster board. They must also have a piece of paper that includes a paragraph explaining each site they have chosen for their road trip.
Students are working on a powerpoint presentation that includes 8 behavioral and structural adaptations for the animal they are creating. They must have bullet points and not sentences in their powerpoint. They must have detailed explanations in the speakers note section of each slide explaining why and how they chose each adaptation.
Many of the students have received replies to their emails. Their next step is to respond to the emails if they have more questions and/or to clarify information provided. They also need to be working on having a list of 5 tasks for each year from 6th grade until high school graduation.
Students were responsible for finding a lyrical poem in class, then they needed to write one of similar fashion. All of this will be done in Google Classroom on the document that we have been using.
As always, if students use their time wisely in class, they should have little to nothing to take home. However, this is not the case for many students. We encourage you to go through their assignment with them. We have started writing in agendas at the end of the day. Students should have the assignments and due dates written in their agendas. Each student was given an agenda at the beginning of the school year. If they have lost it, then they need to figure out how to keep track of the assignments in class. A notebook will work just as well if kept organized.
Finally, we would like to leave you with a quote today from world famous author, J.K. Rowling, “It’s our choices that show who we really are, far more than our abilities.”
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
IN THIS CLASS, IT IS NOT ABOUT WHAT WE KNOW, IT IS ABOUT WHAT WE DO WITH WHAT WE KNOW!
