SERVICE PROJECT WRITE UPS DUE IN GOOGLE CLASSROOM THIS SUNDAY!
PARENT TEACHER CONFERENCES - In an effort to see as many families as possible, I am going to be offering some extra times for P/T conferences, in addition to the two days Mr. Hartmann sent out. Please be on the lookout for a Google form coming out soon that will allow you to sign up for a conference for later next week.
I will also be available on Wednesday, October 26th from 3:30 - 5:00.
Another email will be coming soon to the student families who are going to be moved into the “self-paced” group. I cannot stress enough, and I would ask your help reinforcing this at home, that this is a learning pace split. If you do not get an email from me about math splits in the next day, assume all is going to continue as is for your child. The students and I will discuss the splits on Monday and the two groups will start then as well.
This week we looked at the 3 uses of the law - curb, mirror and guide. Students made and performed skits to demonstrate these concepts. I am hoping to put together a little video and share that out soon.
MEMORY - NO MEMORY NEXT WEEK. We'll work through the memory in class next week. Take a week off.
We worked on a tough concept this week - Long division - YUCK! Students persevered through it and I am very pleased at the progress they made in understanding the steps this week.
Next week, we will have a math test on Thursday. Pirate Challenge #3 is coming on Friday.
Keep up on the xtramath
7th SOCIAL STUDIES
This week we had our map test. Grades will be in Educate very soon.
Next we also played a trade simulation game in class. Negotiation, trades and battles were all part of the fun. Check out Twitter for some pics of the experience.
Next week we’ll delve a little into the election process. We will be holding our own election here at CCLS, related to our Islam study in some way.
We will also be using a new website to create presentations about the five pillars of Islam.
Blessings on your weekend.
