It's time to get ready for the 2014-2015 school year! Our classrooms will be open for Orientation on Tuesday, August 5th from 11:00 - 1:00 and from 4:00 - 6:00. Please come visit me in room 140, if I am on your schedule as your math teacher. Please come to the first day of school, August 7th, prepared for class. Supplies for my class are:
5 - 1" flexible binders
1 package of dividers - 5 tab
1 plastic folder with brads and pockets
1 pair of earbuds
This year my class will be a "flipped classroom".
What is a flipped classroom?
A flipped classroom has students doing, what would normally be their homework problems, in class with me. At night students will be required to watch the lesson for tomorrow's work on the computer. I believe a flipped classroom makes sense with the new math standards and new testing formats. Instead of parents trying to help students with problems or questions that don't make sense to them, I will help the students in class. The lesson videos will be available all year for students to use to study for tests and quizzes. Also, parents can watch the videos with their child to help them understand the new curriculum. Videos will
be longer than 20 minutes. If your family does not have access to a computer, tablet, smart phone, or the internet our Media Center will be open Monday - Friday for students to use our computers for no charge, if your child does not normally attend After Care. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me. I will have examples of what the flipped classroom will look like on August 5th.
