About my class… * We create our own textbooks! * Every single day (unless there is a test or we are completing a project), your child will complete numbered “notebook pages” * They are given time at the end of class to attach these pages with glue. If your child does not attach them during the given time, they MUST attach them at home.
About my class… * We create our own textbooks! * If your child does NOT complete the page(s) from that day, it is their responsibility to come after school for the materials they need, download them from edmodo, or email me for them * All notebook pages are uploaded to edmodo as a PDF and can be downloaded at home * I have both student copies and “teacher” copies of all pages
EDMODO is set up your child to communicate with me, other students, and download any resources they need!
About my class… * Notebooks are checked every 1-2 weeks and count as 30% of the marking period grade. * Pages that are NOT attached, do NOT receive credit!
