TO OUR CLASS!
I am so excited to be your teacher and I am
looking forward to a wonderful year. We will be learning a lot, so
get ready for some serious math fun. In addition to using Holt
Course 1 Book, we will use Engage NY to help guide us through our learning and
What a day in math class
might look like…
Bell-work: We will start
each day with a warm-up activity that will be on the projection device. Students
will use this time to copy down classwork and homework for the day, and then
work on warm-up activity while I check off student’s work from previous day. After
reviewing the warm-up activity we will begin or continue our math lesson.
Class work: Problems for
the lesson will be done in our notebooks as we work towards meeting our
learning targets. There will be opportunities to work
collaboratively and individually. At times there will be assessments that will
measure progress in meeting the current learning targets.
Homework: Classwork will
become homework if it is not complete in class. There will be
opportunities to edit or correct classwork and tests. To receive
credit, you must do your work in pencil, correct it in pen, and show
all your work. Classwork is expected to be turned in on time. Late work
will receive reduced credit. A planner is used to keep track of daily points
for classwork and bell work.
Grading: You will earn an overall
grade that is based on both assessments and classwork/homework. Assessments
(tests, quizzes and reflections) will count for 70% of your overall grade and
classwork/homework (including warm-ups) will count for 30% of your overall
Make up work: You
have 1 day for every day you miss to complete homework. Absent or missing work
should have proper paper heading with date the assignment was assigned and not
the absent date. It is student's responsibility to pick up any missing
Expectations and Procedures
In addition to the Kingston Middle School
student handbook, and in order to have a conducive learning environment, students
are expected to follow the following guidelines:
I am sitting in my
group when the bell rings with my homework and class work
ready for check off. I am working on the daily bell work.
I have all my materials:
pen, pencil, paper, binder and text book and am ready to learn
I show respect with my
face, voice and words to my classmates and my teacher.
I stay on task and allow
others to learn.
Pencil: You can sharpen pencil before the bell, during non-instructional
time or exchange your pencil with a sharpen pencil form me
If you are in need of a
pencil or other materials, please quietly borrow someone from your table
group. If you forgot your binder, use a
separate piece of paper and add it at a later time
All work should have
proper paper heading at the top right hand side with first and last name,
followed by subject, period, date and assignment
Bathroom and water: Try using during
passing time. However, students may use
the bathroom during class but will be required to remain a couple of minutes
during passing to catch up on what is missed. Water bottles may be used during
At the end of class, wait for
teacher’s instructions to pack up and clean up individual area.
