Spring Break Assignment
STAAR and STAAR Review
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
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.
