Please read below for some important weekly updates as we get ready for spring break :)
1. New agenda procedure- Starting tomorrow, students in my class will be carrying their agenda with them outside of their binder daily. Their binder will now act as their hall/bathroom pass; it will be where I will document their daily dojo points on Classdojo; and it will be getting them ready for middle school :). When we went to Autrey Mill on Wednesday, Dr. May told us how they use their agendas for everything in middle school. We want to make sure the students are prepared and confident with their middle school procedures.
2. Field Day- Field day is on Thursday! Please make sure students wear either a light blue or dark blue shirt based on their team. If they ordered a field day shirt, they will receive them this week.
3. DIY /STEM Day- We are celebrating DIY day where we will be bringing out STEM project to life. Students worked hard on creating blueprints of locker rooms for the new Falcon's stadium. They need to bring in their building supplies by FRIDAY, MARCH 31st in order to participate in the STEM activity. A shoe box is required. Other items they choose to build with are up to them :).
4. Fine Arts Night
5. Milestone Testing-
Don't forget, Milestones start after spring break. There are not allowed to be any visitors on testing days. Please keep that in mind. Students should be completing their final Milestone reviews this week for their Milestone Madness. Please make sure they are reviewing their graded tests in TL Coach Digital as well as reviewing for Science and SS.
We will continue to learn about coordinate planes and functions until April 28th when we will have our test.
Yellow Math- We had to move our Unit 2 test back to this upcoming Wednesday due to our schedule this past week. We will start learning Unit 3 this week. Unit 3 covers pre-algebra including important algebraic vocabulary such as coefficient, variable, constant, etc. We will test over Unit 3 on April 28th.
SS- We have decided as a grade level to combine the next 2 SS units. During Milestone testing, we will cover the Cold War, the Civil Rights Movement, and 1975-present day. Please make sure students are reviewing their notes and readings nightly.
I hope everyone is ready to have a great spring break!!
