Good afternoon class!
I hope you all had a great week back in school after the break! Anyways, today in K1GP we were able to do a lot and have fun at the same time! After reviewing and grading the clock projects, I noticed a very common mistake among students. Students did not understand the concept that times like 1:55 look like 2:55 on the clock as the hour hand moves closer to the next hour. Next, if you haven’t already purchased a textbook please do so ASAP! We will begin intense CogAt preparation in the 2nd midterm. Furthermore, most students turned in and successfully submitted their online action verbs test via teacher ease. There are a few students that I saw did it but did not press submit. If you got a 50% on the test that’s why. By the way, check your grades and track your progress regularly in my class! If you see that you have any missing assignments, do them and turn them into me as soon as possible! Lastly, I would like to request for parents to donate some funds for prizes and parties in our class. You can do so through company match funds, check, or cash. Any amount is much appreciated! If you would like to donate to our class, please do so at the NWCS admin table.
