Language Arts

This week we dove into our new text "Flowers for Algernon." Students have enjoyed getting to know our protagonist Charlie Gordon. Feel free to check out our classroom Schoology page to find a copy of the story along with an audio recording. We would love to have you read along! If your student is absent they can also stay caught up by checking the ELA Schoology page for digital assignments.


Have a wonderful weekend!

Math

This week students had a quiz on rational equations. They will get their quizzes back on Monday and will have one week to do a retake quiz. In order to take a retake they will have to see me and schedule a time before school, after school or during lunch. The last day they can do the retake will be February 8.


Students also solved one-step, two-step and multi-step inequalities. They also looked at real world applications with inequalities. They will have an Inequality Unit test on Tuesday and Wednesday of next week. If students need extra help they can use the videos below or they can come see me before school or after school.


If you have any questions please feel free to contact me!

History

This week

This week in history we are finishing up the Industrial Revolution by discussing the differences between the North and the South.


Things due this week: Industrial Vocab was due on Thursday, January 31st. It was assigned to the students several weeks ago. So there should be no issues there.


Several students need to make up the Gold Rush DBQ, to do that, they need to log in to Edpuzzle and watch the video titled Story of Us: Westward.This is episode length with 15 questions that go along with it.


For those students who are missing the Industrial Revolution poster, we worked on this in class for 3 days and then they had the long weekend to finish it. It was due on 22nd. If they would like to make up the work, they can also watch an Edpuzzle with 8 questions to make up for the missing grade.



If you have any questions, please email me.

Please don't be absent!


Encouraging regular school attendance is one of the most powerful ways you can prepare your child for success—both in school and in life. When you make school attendance a priority, you help your child get better grades, develop healthy life habits, avoid dangerous behavior and have a better chance of graduating from high school.


When students are absent for fewer days, their grades and reading skills often improve—even among those students who are struggling in school. Students who attend school regularly also feel more connected to their community, develop important social skills and friendships, and are significantly more likely to graduate from high school, setting them up for a strong future.


But when kids are absent for an average of just two days of school per month—even when the absences are excused– it can have a negative impact.As a parent, you can prepare your child for a lifetime of success by making regular school attendance a priority.
