Monday 10/30

Welcome to Mrs. Taylor’s Web Page

It’s my goal to post helpful info,important reminders, and homework for ALL my classes on this page.

 


Homework


Your student should be maintaining a homework agenda, writing down HW at school. I do post HW and some important reminders daily on this web page so that HW can be confirmed, and also, so that absent students can obtain assignments. Thanks.

If your child has lower test scores, please encourage ACTIVE studying, not “looking it over”. This can dramatically increase performance. I can’t emphasize enough the importance of completing all homework thoughtfully…not rushing through it just to get it done. Thank you. Mrs. Taylor

 


Study Tips


Here are some of my favorite study tips–start early:

  • Turn the objectives or What you will learn into “Can I….” questions to check for understanding.
  • Always use Previewing Technique for reading assignments and any worksheets!
  • Preview workbook pages before reading the section and “take notes” by filling in the science workbook pages.
  • Use index cards to create vocab study cards. Use them to make a written quiz for yourself; First put word side up and write the definitions. Then put definitions side up and retest the opposite way.

Gr 8 Sci- Test is Thursday Nov 2 This will be for first quarter. Great job on Periodic table posters. If you have been absent–you have an extension–please have them by Tuesday. Workbook sects 1-3 due next Tuesday Oct 30 . We had time in class today for workbooks and/or projects. Please note: tests are coming home today–students may make corrections by attaching a looseleaf paper and writing out the complete statement with correct word (letter choice in parentheses) and noting the page of text or workbook oro date/title of class handouts where the answer was found. This is due Monday…place in the science turn in bin first thing!!

Directions were given last week for the element posters–due Thursday. Be sure to include element name, symbol, atomic number, atomic mass, state of matter at RT, valence electrons (for representative elements), uses, where found in nature, any cool facts and pictures!

Start thinking of Vanity Tag phrases you can spell out with Element symbols. Here’s mine: Th I N K– You need to draw yours to look like element boxes! Bring your ideas no later than Monday 10/30 for approval. The due date is Friday 11/3 and then we will set a date for the actual product. Like a vanity tag– no more than 7 characters–so if an element has a 2 letter name–that’s 2!!
