  • Welcome to the 7 Silver Team!

  • 7th Grade Silver Team Newsletter: Week of March 30 - April 3

     

    Math – Mr. Johnson

    Wow!  What a difference a couple of weeks make.  Here we are, hunkered down in our homes, trying to figure out how to deliver instruction remotely to our students.  For the next two weeks, I will have students use the last units of their courses (since they won’t be repeated on the Spring Final Exam) to get used to the process of remote learning.  Therefore, for the first two weeks, March 30th to April 10th, I will only assign homework for participation – no assessments during these two weeks.

    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 have already been in contact with students via their school email accounts.  Before and during the break, I sent out two general math updates.  You may want to read these with your student.  Also, on Sunday, March 29th, I sent out the Lesson plans for Remote Week #1, March 30th to April 3rd.  You may also want to review these notes with your student.

    This week, we will move to Chapter 9, Probability.  This week’s lessons cover both Theoretical and Experimental Probability.  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 9:30 – 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 for 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 have already been in contact with students via their school email accounts.  Before and during the break, I sent out two general math updates.  You may want to read these with your student.  Also, on Sunday, March 29th, I sent out the Lesson plans for Remote Week #1, March 30th to April 3rd.  You may also want to review these notes with your student.

    This week, we will move to Chapter 10, Data Analysis.  This week’s lessons cover both making and interpreting Scatter Plots.  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 for 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.

    Science – Mr. Barrett

    Google Classroom Codes:
    1st hour: aafi7v5
    2nd hour: eiawxdw
    3rd hour:  nL6vuoh
    4th hour: uxiuqtk
     
    This week we will be working on test review packets.  Most students received them before we left school but I will also email them home to students who didn't get one and will post them in google classroom.
     
    To access the online textbook:  click on the waffle and then scroll down until you see the red icon for Connct-Ed McGraw-Hill.  Click on the icon.  Once that opens, there is an icon that says eBook in the top right corner.  That button opens the book.
     
    Next week we will be working on Natural Selection and will be using the book along with other resources.

    Language Arts – Mr. Searle

    Hello Students!!

    I actually really miss you guys. Haha!! There’s a lot happening with this Remote-Learning thing. I’m sure you are getting (or will be getting) a lot of information from all of your teachers. Read through this information for Language Arts, and if you have questions or concerns, definitely email me. This is new to all of us, so we will figure it out together! Just remember… CHECK YOUR EMAIL CONSTANTLY throughout the school days. We will begin Remote Learning tomorrow on TUESDAY, MARCH 31ST

     FIRST- (Google Classroom):

    We will be using Google Classroom for assignments and for turning stuff in. It’s the same “Brian Feathers” classes you’ve had from the beginning of the year and that we used for the Refugee Essays. You should be able to just log-on like normal, and you shouldn’t need it, but here are the class codes for each period:

    1st Period:  52g34mw

    2nd Period:  k5gc3az

    3rd Period:  cfhn3id

    4th Period: oifskq5

     SECOND - (Video Chat Options?):

    I would love to see and talk to you guys! I’m trying to figure out the best way to do that. We will maybe use Zoom, or maybe Google Hangout, or maybe something else. I’m still figuring that out. These invites would be OPTIONAL for now if you just want to talk or ask questions… I do not expect that we will run classes every day via video. Your tasks for English Language Arts will be more self-paced for now.

     THIRD – (Classwork Expectations):

    For now, let’s try to keep it simple...

    1. DAILY JOURNAL WRITING

    We’ll go back to daily journals. I will assign a prompt each day in Google Classroom.  You will write a MINIMUM of 10 complete sentences (a well-developed short-essay) as a response. Provide answers, opinions, examples, and support for the daily writing prompt.

    This will count as daily writing practice, but it will also be a way for me to “take attendance.” Which means you need to submit your response DURING your normally scheduled class. When you submit, there will be a time stamp on your assignment.  For example, 1st Period Students will submit between 7:25am - 8:30am… 2nd Period between 8:35 - 9:35am… 3rd Period between 9:40am- 10:40am… and 4th Period between 10:45 am - 11:45am each day.

    2. SCHOLASTIC SCOPE MAGAZINE

    There are various readings, activities, lessons, and quizzes associated with Scholastic Scope Magazine, and they are very good for Language Arts.  I will assign a series of readings and activities each week to be completed by the end of the week (Friday). The Scope assignments can be more “self-paced,” but must be completed and turned in by the end of each week.

     3. THE INDEPENDENT READING ASSIGNMENT

    The Independent Reading Assignment that was due on 3/20 can be turned in anytime now. I will put the assignment in Google Classroom and you can submit the documents, or you can take pictures of it and send it as attachments.

     COMING SOON…?

    I would plan on seeing some Robin Hood Grammar and some new Independent Reading expectations coming soon. Have an idea of a Choice Novel or book you want to be reading. Many of you have books to read. Many can find one around the house. If you need to access Pikes Peak Library, the LPMS library, or other online sources for choice novel reading materials, be thinking about that.

    Good luck! Check your email often. Keep up with Google Classroom assignments, and HOPEFULLY we will be back in the school building soon!
