Wed 11/9

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.

UPCOMING TESTS: GR 7 Sci Tuesday 11/14  Gr6 & & Spelling will be next Friday, 11/17

GRADE 7 HOMEROOM: Non-Uniform tomorrow–For Veterans Day–NO SHORTS –blue jeans, IF leggings are worn they MUST have a tunic/dress top that is long enough –not just barely cover their bottom !  Red, White or True blue shirts (Print or solid)or your Blue Ribbon Shirt. No turquoise or pink type colors we are looking for flag type colors.  Girls may wear dresses but hem length must meet dress code regulations (top of knee).
