Math: Improper Fraction/Mixed Number Worksheet - Due March 12th
Science: All slides finished
Reading: 5 steps for 2 years after high school to lead to success
Writing: Poem portfolio - Due March 14th
In math, we discussed improper fractions and mixed numbers. We went over how to change improper fractions into mixed numbers and vise versa. Students have a worksheet due on Monday. Along with that worksheet, students were handed back the worksheet they turned in today and need to have corrections done on a separate sheet of paper and turned in Monday if they want to earn points back.
We covered information about some of the causes leading up to the Revolutionary War. Students took notes from the board. There will be a quiz on Monday and we will assign people for the wax museum project that will be finished the day before spring break.
Students were responsible for having all their slides finished for their animal that they created. There should be 8 structural adaptations, 8 behavioral adaptations, and some facts about the animal. All the information is on the rubric that we passed out in the beginning of the week. Students may choose to work on this over the weekend, but they will no longer have any class time to finish.
Today, students were assigned to explain the things they plan on doing for the 3rd and 4th years after high school. This means that many of them will be either starting college after saving money, a couple years into military service (career or temporary), or the 2nd half of college. We explained to students that their life map should go up until they reach their goal. This needs to be done in Google Classroom.
Students need to be working on their final project for poetry. The expectations can be found on Google classroom. This is due on the 14th.
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 German writer and statesman, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, “Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.”
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!
