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 the 2/3,1/3 method for definitions (modeled in class)
  • 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: Spelling test Gr 6 & 7 Less 15 Mon 5/14 (YES Monday!!)Sci 7 Thurs 5/17 Gr 8 final project is a test

Gr 8 Sci-1)All energy labs should have been completed and turned in to me by today! 2) Everyone received their final lab project packet today.

Current timeline: Today you should have created and shared the Google Doc that will be your journal. ( You may also create a Google Slides and share it if your team wants to use that rather than PowerPoint. Once you add info, it automatically saves it to the doc and you do not need to send me a new invite.

Know your materials list for tomorrow–All materials will be provided but you do not want to waste class time figuring this out. Many of you completed this today.

Pre-testing/testing starts tomorrow. All labs will be performed in school. Data tables can be created, data may be processed and reports created at home or school. Divide up the work and designate to team members. Be sure this designation is documented in your journal. Work days continue thru 5/18. Digital presentation and final lab report must be emailed by Monday May 21 8 am so that I can preview prior to presentations.

Presentations May 22-24. You will draw numbers to determine your order.
