Good evening! I hope that you are all staying healthy during this extended break. I wanted to send you a list of resources that you can use to keep your brains fresh while we are out of school. Below is the list of assignments and resources that you can use during this time.
1. ALEKS Assignments- Each student already has several ALEKS assignments that have been specifically assigned to them based on their 9-weeks exams. When accessing ALEKS from home, be sure to go to the program through my webpage (click on the math book link). If students do not access the program through my webpage, their username and login will not work.
2. IXL Skills- I have starred several skills that can be used as review for TN Ready. Please keep in mind that these are optional skills that you can use to keep your math skills sharp! The IXL skills that should be starred are: E8, E11, G16, G18, H10, H15, K6, K7, K10, M8, M9, M10, M12, R2, R18, S6, T7, W4, W17, AA5, AA6, AA7, AA11, AA17, BB16, CC2, CC4, DD2, DD3, DD6 . When you log in to the IXL program, you should see stars next to each of these optional IXL topics.
3. Quizlet Study Cards- A link to a list of Quizlet study cards can be found on my webpage. You can access these study card sets to practice various review skills to help you prepare for TN Ready. Look through the list of study cards and choose the skills that you need to practice the most.
Please feel free to reach out via e-mail with any questions that you have or any issues that come up when trying to access these review materials. Stay healthy!!!
I will be available for office hours via email: Tuesday & Thursday 12 -2
My name is Ms. Pritchett and this is my 8th year teaching math at North Middle! I am eager to get to know your child and partner with you to ensure that they have an exceptional experience in my classroom this year. I set very high expectations for each of my students and fully expect them to be met each day. Positive reinforcements are more common in my classroom than negative consequences. However, if a student repeatedly falls short of my expectations for them, there will be consequences (tickets, loss of group privileges, etc.). I find that with my emphasis on positive reinforcement and encouragement, I do not rely heavily on these negative consequences. Your child will experience a variety of instructional methods throughout the year (individual, group work, technology-enhanced, hands-on, etc.). I love teaching math, and I hope to pass that love on to your child this year. Together we can work to provide your child with a year full of growth, fun, learning, and overcoming the challenges that they are presented with. Here’s to a great year‼!
