Classroom Activities

We are getting back into the rhythm of our school schedule after hurricane Irma. I hope everyone is doing as well as they can be after that terrible storm. In World History we will try to get all of our classes caught up on our curriculum. Classes 2,3, & 4 are up to date with the class information. Now because of the hurricane, my classes 7 & 8 are a little behind so we need to work diligently to get caught up. If for any reason I assign students homework and maybe you have not received power to your home please know that I will work with your child to get worked turned in as quickly as possible. I do not want you to stress or worry about homework or assignments because I understand returning to a normal routine in your home is most important at this time. Please message me on Remind or email me and let me know how I can assist you. 

As far as classroom activities, students will be working in Blended Learning Rotations this week. Students will move around the classroom reading, writing, discussing and drawing differentiated activities that will directly correlate to our state standards and learning targets. I will link the rotation activity sheet to this web page in case a student misplaces their copy.  

Assignments Due

Classes 2, 3, & 4 will submit their rotation work at the end of the week 9/21

Classes 7 & 8 will discuss Paleolithic and Neolithic Eras then later in the week will start on their rotation stations for this current week. 

Additional Resources

ALL IEP and ESOL accommodations will be provided daily.

When a student is absent, it is their responsibility to check the absent files in class and copy notes from a peer.  Students will have the number of days absent to complete missing work.  If you need any assignments emailed, please contact me at smithk@ivyhawnschool.org.
