Come Out and Cheer on OUR BCMS Boys and Girls Basketball Teams!!!
We're movin' and groovin' with our Unit 2! We'll continue with our lessons on the Water Cycle this week. Please continue to check in with your student for new notes added daily to their science notebooks. Many students need pencils, ask your student if he or she is prepared for class. Remember to remind your student to review all notes daily for 15 minutes.
Students will finish the 2019 year with learning about our friends up north in Canada. Students will learn the geography through some engaging strategies. Discovery Education is a great tool we will begin using in class. Students should be bringing home a map of Canada labeled to help them as well.
PBIS Mall Activities: Students will purchase activities for December 18th with their PBIS points. We are excited to end the 2019 school year with these fun and engaging activities. Please have students check out Mr. Collins' PBIS store to purchase so he may place them in the correct areas on the day.
Ms. Stephens' and Mr. Barker's class have finished their "iReady Turkey Trot!" Students are moving forward to "Building a Snowman!" Students have a log sheet for this activity. Students will complete ALL 7 teacher assigned lessons over Ratios and Unit Rates (bottom of snowman). Students will then need to complete 3 "My Path" lessons. This is a summative grade! What's so great about this? iReady is online, so students are able to work on this at home as well! Username: Capital First&Last Initials and lunch # (all attached). Password: pass293. Feel free to email us with any questions! This iReady assignment will be due December 16th! Along with a big step into iReady, students have been growing in their knowledge of the coordinate grid and finding area of squares and rectangles on a coordinate grid! Check out some of the cool robots our students made this week!
Mrs. Simpson's third and fourth period academic classes will be reviewing fractions and their operations, ending the week with the phrase: "You don't ever really divide by a fraction, you simply multiply by the reciprocal!" If your student is in one of these two classes, check with them on Friday and see if they can explain what that phrase means!
This week in Ms. Baer's class, students are continuing to analyze informational texts, as well as practice presenting research that they have been gathering in class. Students will present on the endangered species of their choosing, demonstrating that they can use informational texts to conduct research and support a claim. They will also take their Unit #2 Assessment on Tuesday, November 19th.
