Good bye and good luck

The end of the school year is always a bittersweet time. I am ready for summer break, but I will also miss the kids I've had the privilege of teaching this year. It was great to see them last night at promotion. I know they are excited to start this new chapter in their lives. I wish them all great success in high school!

Update to week of May 6th

As I'm doing lesson plans this week, I realized that next week is our last full week! It seems each year goes more quickly than the last. I have really enjoyed the students this year. I wish them great success in high school!
Here are a few updates (there will probably be more):

  • We will have a final quiz over the Shapes of Algebra next Wednesday.
  • Any missing work/corrections from this unit are due by Thursday, May 16th @ 3:45pm
  • Tomorrow I will give the students their score for the Kansas Math Assessment. Each class met one of their goals and we will celebrate next Friday, May 17th.
  • Tomorrow I will give out DMCT scores (there are a few students that need to finish the test). Remember, an 80% is passing and this is a district test required for high school graduation.
Please contact me if you have any questions.

Update to week of April 29th

We are moving more slowly through the Shapes of Algebra than I had planned for this week. Instead of finishing 3.2 today we are finishing 3.1. Because of this the homework I assigned for today cannot be completed yet. I told the students that if they turned in today's homework (Inequalities Practice) they do not have homework this weekend! If they didn't turn in today's homework they need to finish it and turn it in Monday.

On Monday and Tuesday we will take the DMCT. We will go back to the book on Wednesday.

Have a great weekend!!
