One more week of school until Winter Break! While we are all excited for this break we still have A LOT of things to get done! Many students are missing assignments and NEED to make them before Friday! Grades are finalized Friday, so please make sure to ask your students if they are missing anything (this includes homework).
We have our Unit 4 Expressions test on Thursday. I am very excited for this, because our last test showed significant of improvement! I show students their class results by the stands we are looking at. Each standard is color coded: Red if the concept was not understood, Yellow if we almost understood it, and Green if everyone got it. Our last test only had 1 Red per class!!! Whoo! So I would like to see that stay the same -or- get a few more green!
We also have our Exercise Your Attitude on Friday during specials period. Please encourage your students to keep their grades at or above a C and to keep their behavior in check so that can bounce around in the obstacle course!
Friday is a shortened day so please make sure you have arrangements for your students.
One last reminder about homework. I am still having a hard time getting students to turn in homework. Homework is essential for the concepts to stick with students. Practice makes Perfect!
I'm excited for a great week!
