We will be finished with our units by Tuesday, December 18th. However, I still want my classroom to be engaging and science driven. I don’t believe in free days, however, we can make reviewing our previous learned content more enjoyable. Next Wednesday, I would like to review energy transformations through popcorn, cocoa and Bill Nye.
I am need of help with materials, I am needing Styrofoam cups, spoons and packages of cocoa. I will provide the popcorn. Please send these goodies with the kiddos. Again, thank you for your support.
·Teachers will have the autonomy to require that certain tasks are completed prior to the original assessment to earn an opportunity to take a re-test regardless of their performance. (I.E study guides)
·***** The tasks that are required mustbe communicated to students and parents inadvance, not the night of the assignment. (I.E Remind 101, Blog, etc.)
·It should only be tasks that directly impact students’ understanding of the learning targets on the assessment.
Effective 3rd Quarter
·8th Grade: Students will be allowed to choose 1 retake for the entire semester
