I hope everyone had a great and restful spring break! We are well on our way with Quarter 4, and most classes have at least four grades now. Please check with your student and on Q to see if they have any missing work, as missing assignments early in the quarter have a huge impact on their grade. Students can also do corrections on any assignment, which is a great way to earn some extra credit and boost their grade! As a reminder, we also offer ASHH (after school homework help) most Tuesdays and Thursdays after school until 4:00, which any student can stay for to get extra help on homework or just have a quiet place to work on homework!
Also as a reminder, please continue to check in with your student about their chromebook, homework/absent work, Classcraft, and if they have gotten any behavior referrals that need to be signed (or detentions to be served).
In math this week, we are continuing to work on connecting decimals, fractions, and percents with CPM lesson 3.1.4 and 3.1.5. Your student will have a homework assignment on Tuesday (3.1.4 Review Preview) and Thursday (3.1.5 Review Preview). If we have extra class time this week, we will continue to work on the practice graph with sample science expo data that we started before break. Student science expo data is due this Friday, and we will be taking class time next week to work on graphing their data results, so please check with your student to make sure that they have finished their data on time, so that they are able to work on their graph in class.
In social studies, students are finishing their create projects this week. We will be presenting their projects in class, as well as working on a comparison chart for the three main civilizations we have studied so far this year.
In spelling, we will be starting a new list this week. Tic tac toe boards and lists will be coming out to students this week, but will not be due for a few weeks due to some scheduling changes we will have during spelling time next week. If your student did not turn in their last tic tac toe boards in yet, please have them do so as soon as possible.
