We've made it! The school year is finally over! I won't bog things down with an overly long WCS since I know the kids are eager to start their summer break and be rid of all reminders of school until September (I know I am!). In class, I taught the kids how to make two different origami pieces, linking it to our various geometry units. While the kids worked on that (and to keep them occupied while I worked with small groups and individuals who struggled just a bit more with the intricacies), I had a few videos playing in the background throughout the week.

We're entering the final stretch, but things are still super busy! While the students finished their SOLs on Tuesday (scores can be seen now on ParventVUE in the notes section with some scores added as a grade if it wouldn't negatively effect a students score), a few students who did not pass got immediately to work on preparing to retake the test next week.

We've wrapped up our review this week and today marked the start of the 7th grade math SOLs! While the tests are obviously important to the school, students' scores can be used to help their grades (they cannot be used if the score will adversely effect the grade), so for students who are straddling the line between one grade and a higher grade, this can be used to help push their grades in the right direction.

It's been another busy week of SOL review and I'm kind of warn out! I'm going to try to keep things on the short side (yes, I know I keep saying that and then most of the time give you an essay!) since I'm sure you all want to start your holiday weekend as well!

As the kids can tell you, it's been a little bit of a crazy week what with the start of SOL testing and the varying schedules each day, so I'm just plain beat and ready to call it a day. I'll therefore be keeping this on the short side (at least that's the plan, but you know how I get carried away sometimes).

This will be a quick WCS since I have my niece's dance recital this evening while the other one is standing here all impatient and ready to leave for the day. The MSM2 classes started and completed their data analysis unit, with major emphasis on the histogram. We added quite a bit of extra detail to the notes for this section, since there are a ton of little things that can make assessment questions difficult.

It's been a busy week and things will continue to be busy up through SOLs. I'm sending this later than my self-appointed deadline of Friday because I'm busy working on things for our SOL review that will go into full swing after we finish up just one more unit in both the MSM2 classes as well as the 7H class.

My apologies for this being a day late. My allergies have been wrecking havoc, so I finished up at school as quickly as possible on Friday and headed home. I'm still feeling a bit under the weather, so I'll get straight to the point and end things fairly quickly this week.

Let me start off by thanking everyone who sent kind thoughts and prayers my way since my last posting. Your emails were much appreciated during this hard time. My family is coping as best we can, but it's still difficult as I'm sure you can imagine.

I learned Friday afternoon of my grandfather's passing, so I'm not really feeling up to writing this at the moment. If there are any questions about the weekly happenings in any of my math classes, please feel free to email/message me at any time. I likely will not respond as quickly as some of you are used to, I will get back to you when I'm able.
