    7th Grade Silver Team Newsletter: Week of April 6th to April 10th 

     

    Math – Mr. Johnson

    Great job last week.  I have heard, and received work from, the vast majority of 7 Silver Students.  Well done!  We will continue in our respective units this week – Chapter 9, Probability for Math -7 and Chapter 10, Data Analysis, for Pre-Algebra.  We will try to complete two more lessons this week.  Remember, homework grades only.  No assessments this week.  Please continue to study as you have.  Take notes.  Watch Homework Video Tutors.  Study your book example.  Fill in your Structured Notes.  I will try to keep homework reasonable to be completed in a shorter amount of time.

     Beginning on Monday, April 13th, I will return to where we left off before leaving school – mid-Chapter 7 for Math-7 and mid-Chapter 8 for Pre-Algebra and begin assessing quizzes and tests when warranted.

     Note:  Before leaving school, all students had four homework assignments already in Infinite Campus.  Please check – many students have missing work from before Spring Break.  Students can photograph or scan those missing assignments and email them to me for posting in IC.  Make it happen!

     Math-7 (1st/2nd/3rd Periods):  I sent out work for this week via student email on Saturday, April 4th.  Please print off as a reference for this week.  I also attached Structured Notes, Practice Worksheets and Reteaching Worksheets (the whole chapter in one file) needed for this week.

    This week, we continue Chapter 9, Probability.  This week’s lessons cover Sample Space, Fundamental Counting Principle and Independent and Dependent Events.  There will be a textbook and worksheet assignment for each lesson.  Friday will be a review day, working through two re-teaching worksheets.

    Students have already received guidance on how to watch Homework Video Tutors from our Publisher’s website.

    I have established a daily Google Hangout from 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. each day for Math-7 Students.  This optional hangout is a time that students can meet me “live” in a chat to ask questions and seek extra support.  I will certainly be available via email, outside of that time.  I will try to reply to emails as soon as possible as time permits.

    Pre-Algebra (4th Period):  I sent out work for this week via student email on Saturday, April 4th.  Please print off as a reference for this week.  I also attached Structured Notes, Practice Worksheets and Reteaching Worksheets (the whole chapter in one file) needed for this week.

    This week, we will continue and finish Chapter 10, Data Analysis.  This week’s lessons cover Using Scatter Plots and Two-Way Tables.  There will be a textbook and worksheet assignment for each lesson.  Friday will be a review day, working through two re-teaching worksheets.

    Students have already received guidance on how to watch Homework Video Tutors from our Publisher’s website.

    I have established a daily Google Hangout from 12:30 – 1:30 p.m. each day for Pre-Algebra Students.  This optional hangout is a time that students can meet me “live” in a chat to ask questions and seek extra support.  I will certainly be available via email, outside of that time.  I will try to reply to emails as soon as possible as time permits.

    World Studies – Mr. Koops

        For World Studies online classes, students should log in to their accounts. My classes can be found in Google Classroom. Students should add a class (I believe it is the + tab). When asked for the class code, students will enter the codes for the units below:

    Mr. Koops 1   wk6xtsp

    Mr. Koops 2   s6tjvil

    Mr. Koops 3   i5453rm

    Mr. Koops 4   j3vmp6z

    Mr. Koops 5   jmqmtpn

    Mr. Koops 6   kkcfg5d

    If you have questions on how to get started with online World Studies, here are 20 things that might be helpful:

    1.   Open your student account
    2.   Enter Google Classroom
    3.   Add Mr. Koops' classes (+ tab)
    4.   There are 6 units of instruction (Mr. Koops 1,2,3,4,5 and 6).
    5.   Enter the codes for each unit  
    Mr. Koops 1: wk6xtsp   Mr. Koops 2: s6tjvil   Mr. Koops 3:  i5453rm   Mr. Koops 4:  j3vmp6z  
    Mr. Koops 5: jmqmtpn  Mr. Koops 6: kkcfg5d
    6.   Each unit has lessons with a due date (South Asia 1, South Asia 2 etc..)
    7.   There are 35 lessons to be done between now and the end of the school yr.
    8.   Each lesson has a due date, but don't stress...The first 10 are for participation only
    9.   Late work is happily accepted
    10. In your student account use CLASSLINK or your Waffle to get to your textbook
    11.  Access your textbook with Pearson Realize, not the e-book
    12. There is a tab to connect to your Google Classes
    13.  Once in the textbook, use Topic 11 Lesson 1 to get to the reading
    14.  The South Asia 1 lesson has questions from Topic 11 Lesson 1.
    15.  Answer the questions and submit them to me
    16.  If you get Spanish text, use Pearson Realize to get to the textbook instead of the e book
    17. The first 10 lessons are for participation. Points start with lesson 11
    18. Sometimes the Pearson textbook won't load. It is probably due to too many users at that time..Try later
    19. If you can't get to the textbook, for the time being, watch the lesson video and answer the questions
    20. Collaborate! Read the student comments with each lesson, talk with a classmate. You guys are smart and can help each other. There are many students who are working on the lessons 100 percent who can help.
     

    A few students are experiencing videos that won’t load. This is frustrating. Here are some ideas:

    1. Copy the Youtube link near the bottom of the assignment and exit out of your student account.
    2. Go into Youtube like you would in your spare time. Copy the link in Youtube's search and see if you get it.
    3. Use an engine other than Google Chrome.
    4. Check your computer settings and filters. Use a different computer if you have one.  
    5. Read each assignment’s class comments. Some students are very tech-savvy.
    6. If you have tried everything and nothing works, move on. Focus on the main body of the assignment: the textbook reading and questions. Your grade will not be penalized.

    Language Arts – Mr. Searle

    Hello Students!!

    Like I said in my emails, thanks for all the hard work, comments, questions, and emails last week. Overall, you all did a really great job! We are still figuring all of this out, and I will reamain flexible. Please continue to contact me if you need anything. 

    For this week, we will keep the same routine: There will be a daily journal, a reading passage, and a reading quiz to complete. Remember... you can listen to the AUDIO for all  stories postes. This option helps a lot of kids get through the reading more quickly. 

     

    2. SCHOLASTIC SCOPE MAGAZINE

    When the reading on the website comes up, remember the following steps: 1. Click on "Log-In"  2. Choose "I'm a Student"  3. When asked for the classroom password enter: fundime95 to access the reading. 

    Classroom Password: fundime95

    3. THE INDEPENDENT READING ASSIGNMENT

    The Independent Reading Assignment that was due before all this happend is still posted in Google Classroom. At this point, you can submit whatever you have done - even if it's incomplete. You will get credit for what you have done.

     COMING SOON…?

    I will try to plan for some different activities for next week. I will also try to find a few times where we can meet via Zoom or Google Hangouts. These would be OPTIONAL, and I'm still trying to figure out the best way to do this.
