In Science, during the second quarter the students will be investigating the interactions between thermal energy and matter. Students will explain what happens to the particles of matter when they are warmed up or cooled down. In the second half of the quarter students will start to explore weather and even try to predict it. Hopefully they can be more accurate than the professionals! Please continue to monitor Aspen and Google Classroom for past, present and future assignments. Missing work may be made up past the due dates. Keep up the good work! If you have any questions please email me at email@example.com.
In ELA, we just took a quiz on different types of conflict, setting, and there, their, and they’re. In the second quarter we will learn about the different types of genres, personification, and narrative concepts such as plot diagramming, incorporating sensory detail in our writing, exploding the moment, and dialogue, which will culminate in students being assessed in their narrative writing skills. Students are responsible for half of their second quarter’s AR point goal (Point goals differ class to class, please check the Google Classroom stream for your specific goal) by December 23rd. Students should be reading at least 20 minutes every night. Please continue to monitor Aspen and Google Classroom for past, present and future assignments, any assignment can be made up or revised and resubmitted for full credit up until the day grades close. If you have any questions or concerns feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Happy Holidays!
In math, we will soon be wrapping up our work with percentages. We are examining “real life” scenarios, in which we investigate grocery and other retailers, that will give them the tools to be able to make wise choices as consumers. In the next set of lessons the students will use this knowledge to help them “build” their own equations. Please check ASPEN and Google Classroom regularly, and have them make up any missing work as needed. Any questions or concerns, you may email me directly at email@example.com.
Second quarter is beginning with the Civil War Reconstruction. We will be covering the nation’s expansion West with as a result of the Railroads. New inventions during this Industrial Era brought about major changes in society that led to an Age of Big Business. The growth of the oil and steel industries demanded an increase in our workforce. Student’s will examine the advantages and disadvantages caused by the rapid growth of manufacturing. Our country needed more workers and the flood of immigration from Europe brought about that relief, and also what would become the most diverse, culturally rich country in the world. I can be contacted via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mrs. Murphy (Inclusion)
Please remind your child that if they work with Mrs. Murphy there is a variety of material posted on her Google Classroom (the one with the cake) that will help them be successful in school. The Homework assignments are posted each day. Also, if they require additional support, all they have to do is send an email to Mrs. Murphy and we will set up a time to work together to complete the work. Mrs. Murphy’s email email@example.com
Mrs. McCusker (Academic Support)
During the time of DL, each Wednesday at noon will be a Meet via the Academic Support 6 Classroom to address the SEL needs as well as Academic Support to keep up with assignments.. Our first meeting will be 12/16 and students are invited to bring their lunch and be able to share something that makes them happy! This MAY include snow! :)
Mrs. Bouchard (Guidance)
Greetings from the guidance office! I spent the first quarter in more of a technology support role than a counseling role, but that is what we needed! Please feel free to email me if you are having any issues logging into Aspen. We ask that all parents/guardians log into Aspen, update your Emergency Contact information and check off that you have seen the student/family handbook. Below is a link to the student handbook in English and Spanish. I am in the process of trying to meet with all of my students on google meets to check in, introduce myself and see how your children are doing academically, socially and emotionally. Please feel free to reach out to me at any time at firstname.lastname@example.org if I can be of any assistance.
