What are we studying??

Our next unit of study will be Mixtures and Solutions You can help your student by reviewing their journal with them each night and asking questions about what they learned that day. This strategy will improve their retention of the information covered at school. You can also help them review the following vocabulary words.

How can my student improve their grade?

Students have the opportunity to correct any daily work below a 70 by making corrections on the original paper in a different color and turning it in by the third day after it is received. On unit tests if a student makes less than a 70 they will need to write the question and answer choices on a separate paper, they will need to write an explanation for why they chose their original answer as well as choose the new correct answer and explain how they know this is the right answer.
