Students finished reading "Flowers for Algernon" by Daniel Keyes this week. On Friday, students worked to complete a brochure about the short story to help them study for their upcoming quiz. Next week students will participate in a socratic circle, learn about multiple intelligences, take the "FFA" quiz, and finish the week by watching the "Flowers for Algernon" film.


Advanced students will finish the film on Monday and begin their new novel Feed by M.T. Anderson.


Have a wonderful weekend!

Math

This week students finished the unit on Inequalities. Tuesday and Wednesday they had a quiz over Inequalities. Next week we will begin our unit on The Real Number System. The third six weeks will be ending soon so if students have any missing assignments or makeup quizzes, they need to schedule a time with me before school or after school to complete those.


If you have any questions, please feel free to email me.

Foundations Language Arts

Hello Team-8! Here's what we're doing in class:


  • We just wrapped up guided notes on informational text on the various forms of erosion.
  • On 2/26/2019, we began a new lesson by creating a hands-on model of the Layers of the Earth & Plates by using clay. Students labeled each layer of the earth.
  • Students jigsawed the new section of reading in groups and presented to the class, taking notes on what they learned from each group.
