EOC WEEK

Well the week we have waited for all year is finally here. Yep! It’s EOC week. Testing starts today for the high school and we will be finished on Thursday.

Students are always excited to have EOC’s out of the way. Teachers are too! But please know the school year is not over. We still have things to accomplish and topics to cover before we begin review/final test week on May 3rd.

We will end that week and the school year with CARNIVAL on Friday night. Make sure you are bringing things in for your carnival baskets.

Hope you have a great week!

What’s New Wednesday!!!

Well, my idea of Wednesdays did not go so well in the school year of COVID. I posted one Wednesday… That was all. Now we only have 21 schools days left before 20-21 is in the books.

We are working diligently to get ready for the Algebra 1 EOC. EOCs will be the week of April 19th.

Here’s to ending the school year strong and praying for a better school year next year!

What’s New Wednesdays!

To help me remember to post things on my website, I am starting a new segment called “What’s New Wednesdays!” My goal is to post every Wednesday on what topics we are covering in each class and when to look for the next quiz or test.

I’m also instituting “Correction Conversations” with my students. Correction Conversations allows the students to correct their missed problems on their unit tests. Students will rework the problems they have missed on their test. They will then have a private conversation with me to explain what their original mistake was and how they fixed it. The student will then earn 1/2 credit back for each problem corrected correctly.

On a personal note, I would like to say our students are handling this new school year quite well. Things have been very strange with having to spread out, wear masks, disinfect everything after we use it. I have a great group of students! They are all real troupers!

Now for class updates:

Algebra 2 has have just completed the assessment for Unit 1, Equations and Inequalities. Students have the opportunity to have Correction Conversations with me until October 8th to earn points back for their corrections.

Our next unit is Linear Functions and Systems. If we stay on track, we should be having a Quiz on Friday, October 10th.

Algebra 1B We are currently working on our unit, Linear Equations. We will be having a quiz next Tuesday.

Algebra 1A is continuing their introduction to The Real Number System. We have two more sections in this unit and will be planning to take our unit test within the next week.

Advanced Math is flying through factoring polynomials completely. They will be ready to take their unit test next week.

Geometry is having a time with learning all of their vocabulary. We are working on daily vocab quizzes to keep their skills sharp.

Algebra 1 is reminding themselves of the procedures to solving multi-step equations. We have one more section in the unit covering solving inequalities. This means by the end of next week we should be able to complete our study guide and take the unit test the following week.

Hope you’ve enjoyed this update. You know where to find me if you need me.

WE MADE IT!

I am so thankful that we made it through our first week of class. It was great to see all of our students again.

This week we are starting i-Ready testing in all of the high school math classes. i-Ready is a program that gives us a great look into what each of our students know. We can assess their performance to be able to tell what grade each student is performing at. i-Ready then gives specific lessons to help the student “fill in the gaps” of their learning. I really like the fact that i-Ready gives each student their own personal lessons and everyone in the room is working at their own level.

Hopefully we will be able to finish all i-Ready math testing by Friday.

Please get in touch with me if you have any questions.

Welcome Back!

It’s so good to be able to say we are coming back to school. It has been too long since I have seen my students! I am so looking forward for Monday.

This year is going to look different in class. Teachers are being encouraged to spread students out as much as possible. If you’ve ever been in my classroom, you know that we are all usually bunched up in groups, learning from each other. We are still going to be learning from each other, we are just going to be doing it from a distance.

Take advantage of this last weekend of freedom. Cause Monday’s coming….bright and early.

See you then!

While we wait…..

I just want to touch base with you all and let you know I am missing you.

Mr. Linn and I are doing well and are looking forward to seeing all of our students soon.

Please know that if you have internet access at home, you should login to IXL and practice recommendations for 30 minutes a day. This will keep your math skills up while we wait this virus out!

If you have any questions you are more than welcome to email me at linnm@chcadwik.k12.mo.us.

Also if you have facebook and want to message me, please do so. I am listed as Margaret Hawkins Linn.

Know that I love you and am praying we are all back together soon!

Winding it up!

Well, this week we are working on our end of the semester diagnostic test in i-Ready. This shows our students how well they have performed over the past semester.

Next week we will be finishing up the units we are working on.

Then finally we will have finals on Tuesday and Wednesday of the next week. (December 17th and 18th).

Have a Merry Christmas!

We’re BACK!

Hello! Welcome back to another wonderful school year at Chadwick High School. Can you believe it is the 2019-2020 school year? Time just keeps moving. This is the start of my 11th year here at Chadwick. It is my 24th year of teaching.

Hope everyone had an awesome summer. Mr. Linn and I had a full summer spending time with family as well as having some fun at the beach as Hurricane Barry started blowing in on the gulf coast. We had never gotten to experience how high the waves were getting at our favorite beach spot. It was really amazing to realize the place we had sat on the beach the day we got there was completely under water the rest of the week we were there.

Looking forward to seeing everyone in a few day! Let’s have a great school year!
