I cannot even believe it is August 29. I have been back at school for 6 (school) days and I feel like I am still under water.
It was non-stop Professional development and meetings until yesterday afternoon when we finally got some free classroom time.
On top of moving in to my new classroom, I was moving into a new home. (poor timing to be sure!) so the blog has fallen to the BACK BACK burner.
The year has gotten to a busy but wonderful start. I have a brand new CLT (my fellow math 7 teachers) and a new IT (interdisciplinary team). I was a bit nervous about moving down from 8th grade but has had a great experience thus far!
This year I am implementing SBG in both my Math 7 (pre algebra) and my Algebra 1 class. To help with this I have created I can statements for each unit that the students can reference. My idea is for this to be the first page of each unit. They will glue it on the right side and on the left side they will list what they know (in green), what they know they have heard but don't know remember (in yellow) and what they have NO IDEA about (in red).
Here are the math 7 files for quarter 1
