Thanks for coming to see our violin performance! I posted some pictures here.
We had a first bi-monthly cumulative math quiz on Friday. They will be sent home tomorrow. We will work on correcting a few problems in class. It is a good idea for students to review problems they got wrong and work to import on those types of problems on the next quiz, which will be December 18 or 19 (depending on our Winter Sing performance. Most likely, we will start it Thursday and finish it Friday.). There are only a few new standards addressed each quiz. The majority are review problems, so these quizzes should not be stressful.
Thank you for signing and returning the envelopes. I will send them home periodically so that you are aware of your child's progress. Much of what we do in class on a daily basis isn't worksheets, so keep in mind that what you see is a fraction of how students are being assessed. Also, don't worry too much if your child gets a low grade on one assignment. What matters is mastery after repeated exposure of concepts.
I have started posting some of the technology projects here. Everything you donated has come in and I finished putting together the cart after school on Friday. We are finding our groove and have really started to get a hang of some of the apps! Thank you SO much for everything.
