Students finished and publish their sites, we graded them in class today and the students graded them as well. The grade is based upon the 3 scores given, 2 from peers, and 1 from me. Overall the kids did a great job on their sites, but most impressed with Maquella's. I will give the students time to make any changes they want to the website before I publish them live for parents and teachers to view.
The students were almost all finished with their Chapter 5 work - but I have given then an extension for Friday the 3rd to finish all the work and make sure to get it turned in. Some students have used after school hours to work on their assignments, and the lab will be open for students to use on Friday after early release. I will take the work up to 3:00pm.
I have started a new page for the website and it will have the lecture notes and the assignment sheets for the Digitools 9 class. I will get a new page for Math and Digitools 7 started as well that will have notes and aassignment sheets for parents and students to download. Hope this will be helpful for students who are absent from class.
Well there are 2 days of November left, but the start of December is here for me. December will be a fast paced month and short so students will need to buckle down and get their work done. Math kids are going to get a few more lessons in and hopefully we can see grades improve if they will redo assignments. The Digitools 9 kids are going to work in Excel and Web Design this month. Digital Media will be doing some projects for websites I found on-line. Digitools 7 will start work on reports, then hopefully before end the Dec complete a PowerPoint.
One more day to finish up Chapter 5 work - Everyone is very close and they may get a little more time to finish up on Wednesday after lecture and then on Thursday if they finish their Review Sheets and submit. The test for Chapter 5 is Friday.
FYI - tomorrow is the day for the new edition to our computers - it will be fun for me and I am sure make some the students very very mad, but it is a lesson and they will learn to type without looking :)
Students seem to have a pretty good understanding on Factors and from the work they did in class from the book I will see if they understand after the lecture. The Applied 1 group will finish their book work tomorrow at the start of class. Test for Factoring will be on FRIDAY
We took the Proportions and Ratios test - students got an opportunity for 3 extra points. Hoping for good
Well it was a late start today, but we still got a lot done. Digitools worked on their Chapter 5 work - if we have snow days or late start again this week I will extend the due date. Applied Math still got their tests done, hoping to see good scores. Digital Media worked on their websites, must publish them tomorrow. Digitools 7 -- started the Memo project due on Wednesday *unless we have snow day.
Home work is to complete the worksheet (1st page only). Oh don't forget to fix any mistakes you had on the last page. We are going to finish up the worksheets tomorrow do a review on Monday and test over Ratios and Proportions on Tuesday - I think everyone will do well if you just take your time and check your answers.
Students are getting almost finished with the Chapter 5 work and they are remembering what they are doing :). Don't forget to save correctly before you submitted so that I can grade you. Also check the board daily to make sure that your submitted work was received. QUIZ tomorrow - are you ready?
Mrs. Miller will use the blog to help students ask questions, remember what we did in class and just a place to discuss class topics.
