This Week in Geometry

March 21 - March 25

Please Read - Laptops

We will be starting to use laptops more frequently in class. The goal is to work towards using the every single day. Students need to make sure they are bringing their laptops with them and they need to be fully charged and they should also be bringing their chargers with them. In a situation where a laptop is out for repairs, they can use their phone, but laptops are needed when at all possible.

Tutoring

As always, I am available for tutoring after school if your student needs to attend. My normal days are Tuesday and Thursday. This week I will be available on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday.

Spring Break Assignment

I asked students to complete a benchmark data analysis over Spring Break. I have several students who have completed and submitted the analysis to me. If you student has not, please remind them to do so.


Thanks!

STAAR and STAAR Review

STAAR is literally right around the corner and just over a week away!!


We are still learning some new material this week that will be tested. I will be sending home some STAAR review materials on Thursday for students to work on that will be based on the data analysis that students completed. Each student may have something completely different based on their week areas.


On Monday the 28th, we will do a whole class review to prepare for testing on Tuesday.


As always, if a student needs any help at all, they are more than welcome to come during tutoring to ask questions. Also, they may ask questions before/after class over these packets. Finally, there is an online sticky note board posted in blackboard where they can post questions over the STAAR reviews.


STAAR Dates (for your reference):

Tuesday, March 29: 8th grade Math (and 7th grade Writing)

Wednesday, March 30: 8th grade Reading


Monday, May 9: 7th grade Math

Tuesday, May 10: 7th grade Reading

Wednesday, May 11: 8th grade Science

Thursday, May 12: 8th grade Social Studies

Copies of Assignments

If a student is missing an assignment for any reason, there are several ways they can get a copy of it:


1. I post copies of all daily work and notes pages on blackboard. Students should be able to access them anywhere they have Internet connection. Also on blackboard is a calendar where I post daily entries with detailed descriptions of what was done in class that day. I also post pictures of my notebook on blackboard so that students can see any notes they have missed.

2. I attach copies of anything that is a daily grade in skyward as well. Students (and parents) can access these files.

3. Students can ask me for any work they missed as well, but this method is not the quickest way to get work, as it usually has to wait until there is a chance during class for me to pull that work.


Students are responsible for keeping up with their notebooks and making sure they get any missed notes if they are absent. They are also responsible for getting their missing work.


Tests will NOT be posted online, so if a students misses or needs to retake/correct a test or quiz, they will need to come to tutorials.
