Math class will begin with 5 minutes of time to get started on Simple Solutions. Then class will direct to lesson. We will generally do a section a day with corresponding independent practice for homework. I also do supplement from other books. There are many ways to solve a problem (including how we parents learned!) Time is a factor. Students need to take notes everyday and solve the in-class and homework problems in their notebooks. Quizzes and tests will be given by section. Points will be given for homework completion and i-ready completion.
Religion class will begin with a prayer (usually rosary). Book will be utilized in the form of printouts or online. Class will close with a journal entry. There will be religion study guides and tests given.
Science will be following the Fusion Life Science curriculum/Physical Science text and in-class participation and demonstration.
Positive Behavior In Schools (PBIS), St Cletus handbook, classroom rules
Cardinal Coupons, emails home to parents, lunch time-outs or detentions, after school detentions, in/out school expulsion.
Math: We will do a section or subsection everyday. There will be homework every day reflecting the section we covered. Generally, it is 15-20 problems a night. There will also be a Simple Solutions to finish each night. I will try not to give weekend homework unless it was a multi-day project.
Religion: Study guides and some journal entries will be required to be done at home.
Science: As needed homework will be given to move lessons to completion each week.
