How can I help my child student for a quiz or test? I get asked this question from time to time, so here are some resources your child can use:

  • NOTES: Students should be studying their notes that we take in class.
  • TEXTBOOK: Every student has a textbook at home at the end of the lesson quiz your child on the questions at the bottom of the page.
  • STUDENT WORKBOOK: is a good resource for students to go over the questions and answers from the chapter and lesson.
  • VOCABULARY WORDS: Students should know the academic and content vocabulary word and definition. Sometimes making flashcards helps with studying the vocabulary words.

 

Weekly assignments will be posted under Monday of the calendar section for the entire week for you to easily preview.
