Math: Thank you for your patience as we are figuring how how the flipped classroom will work best. Please remember students only need to do the assigned Visual Learning and Quick Checks. I will update our calendar with the assignments for now, but students should have the information written in their agendas. We will start having math quizzes once a week. The quizzes will be on the material from the Visual Learning Activities for the past week. Students will be offered a retake on all quizzes near the end of the quarter. All retakes will be on the same day, and students can select what quizzes they would like to retake. I will let you know when the date approaches.

Reading: Students are working the the QAR (question, answer, response) strategy. This strategy helps students understand what questions are asking them to do and how they are asking them to think about the text. There are no reading response questions this week, we are typing our stories instead.

Writing: We are finishing up our first Narrative Writing stories. Students should type for 20 minutes a night for homework until they have finished with their stories. They should be working on their CPS Google Docs.
