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.
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
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.

You should have rec’d an email today with final details– please wear jeans, khakis, or the black athletic pants–no shorts, no leggings! with your burgundy polo. You may layer with burgundy fleeces and hoodies–we need to be the same color for visibility ! You may bring a larger coat for the bus if weather deems it–We will be let off and picked up by the museum. Brown bag lunch– with no glass. Students need to be here by 7:15 unless they ride the very first buses here ( 16 & 10?). Later buses will not get your student here in time.

We did the “Can you identify these cell structures?” cell parts riddle worksheet today ( due at end of class) & we rec’d rubric for cell scientific drawings and viewed A samples. These are colored and please use colored pencils. These drawings are due Monday 11/20. but this would be good prep for test as a rough draft.
