Many students increased their scores on the probes for their IEP goals. They either maintained or increased. I have handed them back and showed them their mistakes. They will be retaking to see if they can get more points before I leave on maternity leave :)

*Students will be studying from old tests for the post test of the year...this will be for the next three days. They are to pick out skills that they are struggling with and take notes, ask questions, use IXL, etc. The post test will be given to them next week and retakes are available if they struggle the first time.

There are many students that are not taking seeing the importance of correctly doing the daily journal. Many are skipping problems, not taking notes when skills are taught, asking questions or even writing down the correct answer when reviewed every day. Their scores are not increasing when journal checks are pulled (lowest score they can recieve is a 5 and that is if they answer 1-2 out of 9 questions correctly). These skills are needed to be successful in the 7th, 8th & high school curriculum. I will be pulling a journal check again this week and may be calling/emailing some parents to see if students can stay after every Tuesday or Thursday to be retaught these important skills

Math classes: Today we did a 'Getting to know how we work in math' worksheet & pre test for the year

Today I announced to the students that I am going to be gone after Spring Break. I am expecting my second child. :) I will have an awesome long term named Gloria Hendrix. She has had tons of experience being a guest teacher and has subbed for me many times in the past. The 8th graders are very familiar with her and the 7th graders will see her and meet many times before my leave. She is great with my students and will do a tremendous job finishing our the year.

If you have any questions or concerns about the transition for your child when this time approaches, please feel free to contact me through phone, email or even at conferences in November :)
