I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend. Please check below for some weekly updates:
7 Mindset Houses- We have organized students into houses by randomly selecting bracelets. Monday will be their first house meeting. We will have house meetings once a month for the rest of the year.
Dolphins Diving Deeper- (3D time)- We will start 3D time on Tuesday. Every Tuesday-Friday from 7:45-8:15, we will have 3D time. This is a time for remediation and extension. Students have been sorted into groups based on their STAR test results and first 9 weeks grades. We will be focusing on Math extension and remediation.
We have been working with coordinate planes and functions. We will have our test over unit 7 this Friday, 10/30.
We have worked on multiplying decimals for the past week. We will continue this and start learning about dividing decimals this week. This unit also focuses on multiplying and dividing by powers of 10. This is a concept we have been working with all year but it is difficult for students to grasp. Please be reviewing this with students. This unit test will be next Thursday, 11/5.
We have learned all about cells and microorganisms. Students were asked to create a "Cell City" for their unit project. This could be done in any format. Guidelines and rubrics were handed out and all students should have this information. Cell city is due on Tuesday, 10/27. This is the same day as their cell test.
We doubled up on Science and Social Studies during ITBS week. We are currently learning about the turn of the century including cattle drives and economic patterns of the beginning of the 1900's. We will continue this unit throughout the week. Our unit test for this will be November 3rd.
Check back every week for a new post with information about the coming week.
