Man, it is a cold one this week! Hope everyone is staying warm! We had a fabulous Veteran's Day program yesterday and loved getting a chance to hear from some of the veterans after the program!
As a reminder, students should be bringing home graded papers to show you! They can complete corrections on any paper to earn up to 1/2 credit back (homework, quizzes, tests, etc.). They should also be charging their chromebooks at home on a regular basis. Try to find a specific spot and set up a routine for checking/charging those devices. We are still having a number of chromebooks dying during class, so please make it a priority to talk with your student about this.
This week in math, we are finally finishing our assessments for Chapter 2! We are taking our individual assessments on Tuesday, with Wednesday available if needed to finish. The rest of the week will be spent on some teambuilding activities with our new groups, as well as beginning Chapter 3: Portions and Integers. At this time, I do not plan on students having homework assignments this week.
Struggling to help your student with homework??? Take advantage of CPM's Homework Help page! We spent time going over this a lot at the very beginning of the year, but some need a refresher! Almost all math homework assignments come from CPM, and CPM has homework help for each problem. Simply find the homework probelm (all on their textbook page!), click on the homework help link, and hints will come up for that problem. Some problems even give you a bonus hint/help! You can also access the Homework Help using the Website Links here on my website. There are also resources available for parents under the CPM (Math) Parent Resources page.
This week in social studies we are finishing our Early Humans/Mesopotamia Unit! We are spending Monday and Tuesday reviewing, with our test coming on Wednesday (November 13). The remainder of the week will be spent kicking off our next unit: GREECE!
Have a great week!
