Students were let out early today so that teachers could spend some time in classes of their own. 😀 😀 😀 Hope they enjoyed the break and will come back next Monday refreshed and ready to go.
My classes today were focused mostly on catching up and finishing any classwork from the past week that needed reminding. Both Social Studies AND Math classes can expect tests and study guides to go out next week to sum up the past units, these will be posted on the Blog the same day they go out.
SOCIAL STUDIES HOMEWORK? MAYBE.
All Social Studies students should have finished the following come Monday (hopefully they mostly finished in class, but any gaps are homework.) I will check each of these Monday during Bellwork for the 10 pts these assignments are worth.
Primary and Secondary Source Notes.
This is the following pages we worked on in class glued/stapled into their interactive notebooks
- two pages of text (2nd page has about 6 lines students need to fill in)
- one page of flaps with definitions and drawings underneath
- one page of personal/class definitions
- one page of sorted sources (students need to fill in)
- one page of labeled sources (students need to fill in)
Mind Walk – Activity and Evidence Log
Students thought of 5 things they did in the past 24 hours and provided 1-2 pieces of evidence someone could use as a Source to prove they were there. Signed Papers, Video Logs, Friends’ Testimony, etc. We will complete part C on Monday, so that does not need to be completed.
Bellwork is being graded this weekend, so students should have made sure that they have each daily entry dated. Many students continue to slack on this activity, so pa
Doot Doot It’s Octoberrents and students, if your progress report is showing poor Bellwork grades, get it together! I don’t grade these on correctness, I grade them on the attempt and effort as they exist as a setup and warmup to my class.
MATH HOMEWORK? MAYBE.
Math students also had time to finish any incomplete work from this week after completing a short 5 question quiz on solving equations with negative numbers. We will be pushing and pushing excellence and mastery of these skills all year because they are incredibly important. The other work they need to have turned in Monday if they did not complete it is:
8 Question Large Number 2-step equations Sheet
Exactly as it sounds, this was homework due today so it definitely should be in for Monday.
Word Problems Practice Sheet
Students practiced turning word problems into mathematical formulas at a simple level. This is another MASSIVELY important skill students will practice this year, and this is just the beginning. There were about 16 questions on this sheet for students to finish.
Also, happy Friday the 13th of October. Don’t forget to be extra spooky this Weekend to make your skeleton grow up big and strong!
