Math 8: Extra Credit

I hope everyone has been enjoying fall break! I have some extra credit opportunities for you. As I mentioned before the break, I have signed up for new ixl logins. I have highlighted particular areas I would like students to work on that will help with our current unit. One of the areas is under the 7th grade math tab on ixl.

 

If students do at least 20 problems on any of the skills with a star (or any combination of the starred skills), I will put whatever score they earned into the gradebook as EXTRA CREDIT under the same category as weekly skills.

Bring Your Own Supplies!!!

We have not even completed the first 9 weeks of school and ALL of the supplies I had purchased (glue bottles, glue sticks, colored pencils, etc.) have been taken from my classroom. I no longer have materials to let students borrow if they forget theirs. Make sure you bring your own materials to class, this includes calculators for math!!!
