DonorsChoose Project

Please consider donating to my current project on DonorsChoose.org.  I am requesting funds for a color printer, ink, and a set of speakers to use in my classroom.  All donations are currently being matched by an anonymous donor, so I only need $168 to get the project fully funded.  To donate, just click on the picture below.  Thank you!

The kids will be having ice cream sundaes in the cafeteria. then going outside to play on the playground.  (If you haven’t sent $1 for the sundae, please do so as soon as possible!) Cookies, favors, etc. may be sent and will be passed out in the homeroom before the class joins the grade level in the cafeteria.  Parents are welcome to sign-out their student with the teacher after the party.  If your student is going home with another student, I must have a written note from you giving permission.  No phone calls for permission to ride home with someone else will be accepted.

Geometry Vocabulary Practice

We will have a Geometry Vocabulary Quiz on Friday this week.  The students are allowed to bring home their math journals to use for studying…but the journals have to be returned to school each day.  We’ve also created a set of flashcards in Quizlet that they can use to review the words.  There are a variety of ways that students can study using Quizlet including flashcards, games, and practice tests.  Click on the link below to practice.
