Grades will be recorded for homework practice, Mid-Chapter Quizzes, and Chapter Tests. Please be sure to check my website frequently as I post all class assignments and homework on the website. You will find all assignments for the entire week posted on the calendar on Mondays.
Tutoring will begin Wednesday, August 27th from 3:00-3:45 in my classroom. It is on a come as needed basis as long as the numbers do not get too large. A students can attend every week or only as they come across material that seems more challenging. At 3:45 they will return to aftercare or will be ready for pick up in the front of the school in the 7-8 car line. If numbers require I will add an additional day of tutoring. Remember all students have an ALEKS account and this too can be used to review and build 6th grade skills. ALEKS suggests 90 minutes a week on the program for maximum success, ( www.ALEKS.com ) their password is taped in their agenda. During the second 9 weeks each student will be required to use ALEKS for 30 minutes each week and master 2-5 skills for a grade. I will be checking on Mondays for the previous week to record their ALEKS grade. ALEKS can be accessed at home or they can use the computer lab after school to complete their 30 minutes of ALEKS time.
The online textbook is now available for use as a tutor and for self check quizzes. The user name and password is taped into the front of the child's agenda. http://connected.mcgraw-hill.com is the website.
