As we move through the second semester please remember to replenish your student's school supplies. I have many students coming to class without paper or a pencil. Thank you for your support.
the 7th graders learned about infectious and noninfectious diseases.This chapter included a project
that involved the students doing research about a specific disease and
creating a warning poster about the dangers of the disease.
It was a fun project and the students did an excellent job. In February the students will be learning about the characteristics of life, classification, and evolution. From there we will move into genetics.
the 8th graders focused on the periodic table.We learned about the organization of the
table, the different parts of the table, the characteristics of the metals,
nonmetals, and metalloids. In February we will continue the Chemistry unit and learn about chemical bonding.
Please continue to encourage your student to
study regularly and complete homework on time.I give extra credit to students for studying the online flash cards and
taking the online practice tests.
Online Textbook & Bonus
Activities - Students will be given an access code for
their class period during the first week of school (they are also located below
by class periods). They must register using the instruction sheet that
will be provided (located below). At the web site students will find
their textbook online and additional activities to reinforce what they are
learning in the classroom. They will also have the opportunity to get bonus points on vocabulary quizzes if they test themselves prior with
the online flashcards (they must have a parent witness and sign off).
This will help them prepare/study for all vocabulary quizzes. One week
prior to the chapter tests students will have access to the online chapter
practice test. They will also have the opportunity to get bonus points on for all
chapter tests. Again, this
will help them prepare/study for all chapter tests. The web site is - www.pearsonsuccessnet.com
