Class Updates

Algebra w/ Mrs. Murray-In Algebra, we reviewed properties of real numbers, and writing and evaluating algebraic expressions.  We completed our aims web testing.  Friday we worked on an assignment called “Do you want to be a Millionaire?”

Music w/ Mrs. Chelsey – This week we added in two challenging rhythms, “tumi-ti” and “syn-co-pa”(ask them what notes these represent;). The students broke off into new groups to work on figuring out a given beat pattern on their own, and then presented them to the class.

Deep Dive with Mr. Jividen and Mrs. McFadden- 7th and 8th grade students worked together to pass a citizenship test (barely)! Later in the week, they studied current events related to immigration.
