Our student teacher, Miss. Medvick, is leading our math classes for the second semester. She has been working hard with our students and has been doing a great job!
Homework will be looking different as we begin the second semester of the year. Students will be recieving a packet of homework problems and will have approximately 1 week to complete all problems. All of the skills in the packet are skills that we have previously covered and students may ask for assistance as they work through the assignments. We will be spending our class time focused on each day's lesson and skills including answering ACE questions. Students are encouraged to keep their packet in their math binder (points will be deducted for additional copies). Students are also encouraged to work on a handful of problems each day (during panther time or at home) and to NOTwait until the last minute. Please reach out if you have any questions! The sixth packet is due Monday, February 24
Students will be periodically assigned Flocabulary review tasks in Google Classroom. Student need to watch the video and complete the activities. Students will take the quiz when they feel ready. They make re-take the quiz as many times as they wish. I will not accept quiz grades less than 70%. This will be a grade in progressbook. Students login with their google information.
