COVID-19 Distance Learning

The Etiwanda School District provides virtual classroom lessons through the distance learning plan.  Please note that during virtual sessions there is no expectation of privacy, students and anything in their background will be in view of the class. Those who prefer not to have their image shown may elect to turn off the video camera during the virtual session.

Week of 4/27/2020 - Integer Review; Statistics and Probability
This week we will be reviewing multiplication and division of integers, and how to compute the mean, median, and mode of a set of numbers (data). Scientists are using data to track the progress of COVID-19 right now. They will also use this data (numbers) to help get equipment where it is needed most, and in their research to help develop a vaccine. In preparation for next week, we will start going over the probability (chance) of events happening. For example, what are the odds that you will turn over a card in a full deck and get an ACE? You can practice with cards at home. If there are 52 cards total, and only 4 Aces, your odds would be 4/52. If you simplify that fraction, you get 1/13. That means for every 13 cards turned over, one should be an ace. REMEMBER, probability comes from the word "probable". It is not absolutely certain! Day 1: >

If you cannot get on IXL, do at least 5 problems with your own numbers for measurements. Submit to me by email or share a goggle DOC with the numbers for the Radius and Height, then the answer. You do not need to show the formula for your work. These problems are hard to type into a computer.
Multi-step Equation practice will be reviewed.
Week of 4/27/2020 - Integer Review - Almost all of your work in high school will involve working with integers. You need to practice to get better. You need to practice so you just know what to do without even thinking about it - that should happen within a year IF YOU PRACTICE. Worksheets with rules included can be found on the Math sub-page. Keep going; we're almost there!!!

Ch. 9 - complete by Wednesday, April 15. Then jump to Ch. 12. Class MEET sessions to be held regularly - Codes in Google Classrooms Monday Check-in for ALL students at 3:15 7th grade - Tuesday and Thursday at 3:00 PM for New Lesson - extra practice time at end 2:30 PM for small group help on previous skill 8th grade - Wednesday and Friday at 3:00 PM for New Lesson - extra practice time at end 2:30 PM for small group help on previous skill "Paper Copies" of Quizzes and Tests can be printed off of the subpage labeled Science Quizzes and Tests. Optional Math pages will be on the Math Assignments subpage. (In progress) Codes are listed in my Google Classrooms and remain the same. I will record the academic portion of each MEET so you can go back if you need help remembering what we did or could not make it to that session. If you do not have access to something, please email. ATTENTION - These assignments are suggestions to all. No one's grade will be impacted by the work that is done, or not done, at this time. If I am not personally teaching you, I am not personally grading you! All work is optional and at your own pace. Don't give up and don't stress. NO WORRIES! HOWEVER, practicing your math facts or making up a game for others to practice with you is always helpful. If you make up a board game using skills we have learned, I promise we will play it when we return. Math - Please do at least 1 regular iReady lesson per day if you can get online. I will also assign several lessons to each student that will give them practice in deficit skills. My Google Classrooms will be updated with IXL skills they can practice. When they make a mistake, they are supposed to scroll down to see what went wrong. I will be available by email from 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM. If you have questions out of that time frame, email anyway. I may see it at night, or I will get back to you the next day. Science - Each student should have their workbook in their backpack. They should continue reading the hardcover and answering the questions in the workbook. I will update the sections for each grade, and possible links to BrainPop, etc. I will post Quizzes and Tests to be completed as Scavenger Hunts. Use the Headings, Pictures, and Graphs to find the answers, or go online and see what you can find. REMEMBER to spend plenty of time moving around. At least every 20 minutes you should stand up, take a walk, do a dance, clean the house! Check out GO NOODLE online for some fun active time. General Info Please check this site for occasional special notices. I will only assign homework if I believe the students can work on it independently. The 2 pages I have been sending home each week should be review and drill work they need. I include the Keys so they can check their work. You may take the keys and check it yourself to help them. I spend a great deal of time in class going over examples of the math concepts. We use calculators on most assignments so they can master the general concept and method.  Please feel free to have your student work on basic math facts whenever possible. Children learn best when given real situations in which to use these skills, so take them shopping with you.  Give them a phone calculator, and have them figure out the bill. Ask them to make up a math problem and you can both work to figure it out. Collect the coins you get for change and have them count them. Everyone needs to practice their math skills, right?!


AT ALL TIMES - If your student has no math work to do at home and you want them to get extra practice, they may go online to their iReady account and do an iReady lesson.  It gives specific lessons on what each individual student is missing on assessments. The lessons are approximately 15 - 25 minutes long if they focus. Do not overdo the homework for them, but this is better screen time than 3 hours with a video game.  I can track their progress by date, time spent on the lesson, and accuracy.
