Presentation on mixtures from todayWelcome 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.
