We are getting towards the end of the first 9 weeks! I wanted to make a quick post with a few updates for class:

  • Grades – Grades are up to date for most assignments.  Students are receiving grade printouts/scholarship warnings this week. Graded activities are being passed back to students to be put into their Interactive Science Notebooks. If I made an error in Focus, be sure to show me the graded activity so I can change it. 

    We still have a couple more physical properties investigations which will go into Focus for the first 9 weeks.  We will complete these in class this week.

    • Density Quiz If you did not take the density quiz you will take it during the work period on Thursday or Friday this week.  If you did not get a passing score on the density quiz, we will do a small-group review and you will get a retest opportunity on FRIDAY in class.
  • Science Projects– I will get proposal paperwork passed back to you this week.  If I gave you approval or discussed specific changes that should be made to your project, you are able to proceed with your investigation.

    The tentative due date is after Thanksgiving break.  I need to discuss with the rest of the science dept. before I can give a specific date.

  • Bonus- Don’t forget the bonus opportunities I have available for the first quarter.  The due date is right around the corner.  Please see my post here for more info.
