Week 4

How is the course progressing?

  • Your child is working on Module 3, which is due Thursday by 11: 59 PM.
  • Last week students studied the integumentary (skin) system, and this week we are focusing on the skeletal system.
  • In the skeletal unit, students have the opportunity to build a model of a skeleton from household objects. This should not be a stressful activity! Q-tips, rubber bands, pencils, shells, staples, beads, noodles, string, paper, and twist ties are examples of items students can use. In the course I have posted some example pictures for students to review. Hopefully they find this to be a fun and creative way to demonstrate their knowledge, photograph it, and send it to me!

How is my child doing?

  • Today's email contained information about your child's average. Since I am unable to put grade letters or numbers into emails due to student privacy, please remember: Excellent=A, Good=B, Fair=C, Unacceptable=D, Below Expectations=F.
  • You may follow your child's progress in the course through Observer Access.
  • There is also a Canvas Parent app that can be downloaded to your smartphone to track your child in the course.

What about late work?

  • I will accept late work until the end of the quarter.
  • There is a 1 point deduction (about 10%) for each week late the work is submitted.
  • If your child has anything missing, please encourage him/her to submit it ASAP!

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me via text, email or phone!
