We are in our fourth week of learning at home. Over the last couple of weeks
we celebrated the Fall Equinox and Constitution Day. We reviewed positions of
lines and types of angles, and oriented to Khan Academy. Everyone should
now have their composition books and folder prepared and labeled. If you
have questions about how your work folder is should be set up or how your work
journal should be used, please view the LAH slide presentation:
If you have further questions, please reach out. We will be referring to and using
all of these during your weekly conferences.
Over the next couple of weeks we will be covering the First Great Lesson,
reviewing the Earth’s spheres, reviewing the parts of a plant and their needs,
continuing sentence analysis, and solid geometric shapes and area
Each week it is important that you share at least 1 example of your work on
Google Classroom. This should be an example of work that is important to you.
You may be proud of it, it might show growth or improvement or you can show
something you struggled with that we can talk about together.
As a reminder there are opportunities for On-Going, Follow Up, and Big Work.
On-Going work is something that you practice at your own pace to get better
at. Follow ups is work that you practice after a lesson, and Big Work is a project
that you are working on as an extension to your learning. This is usually an
independent study where you will find yourself going to the library for more
information, writing a report, making something and sharing something. Your
day should include each of these types of work.
Here’s to two more weeks together!
