We had a very successful 1st quarter in both math and SS.



Tips for Continued Success


Math:


  1. Make sure students continue to watch the videos every night. The book continues to get tougher and falling behind is easy to do if students are not keeping up with the videos.

  2. I am available before school any day and Monday till 3:45 for any tutoring.


Social Studies:


  1. To stay up to date with current events, we watch CNN 10 a program for students that gives them information on what is happening around the world. Please ask your child about this. There are many cool things students are learning about.

  2. Make sure your student is practicing the Kahoot and Quizlet games to review questions on upcoming quizzes and tests. These can be practiced on most tablets and phones.

Flipped Class 

My math class is a flipped classroom.  The students will login to a site called schoology.com almost every night to watch a video that I made to teach the concept for that lesson that we will work on the next day.  During class they will work on that concepts and practice problems for the upcoming test.  

If you were like me growing up, I would try to understand the teacher during the lecture, practice just a little in class and then try and do the homework.  A lot of nights ended up with me struggling to understand the concept and my parents not understanding it either and there would be a lot of arguing.  This solves a lot of that problem.  Just make sure that your child is watching the videos every night.

Classwork 

A lot of the classwork is also done on Schoology.com.  This gives them immediate feedback if they are right or wrong.  They have until the end of the quarter to get a perfect score on all the assignments.  There is no reason that a student shouldn't have an A on their classwork.

Power Ups 

Everyday we begin the class with something called power ups.  These are concepts students should memorize.  We work on the same power up at least 10 times before they have a test on it.  And the test is exactly the same as what they have seen 10 times in class.  Again, the students shouldn't have below an A on their power up grade.
