Today we started our new notes for the waves unit. We will be working on these a few days. It is taking us longer than usual because I had a lot of requests to show students how to shorthand again after I showed them how with the heat unit. We are going through each slide, analyzing, and figuring out how to take quick, efficient notes by eliminating unnecessary words/phrases. This is a skill that will help students tremendously in the long run, as note-taking frequency will increase as they continue their education. I have attached the presentation and guided notes sheet below if you've been absent or if you'd like some extra review at home. Not all students get guided note sheets, but if your child didn't get one and you'd like them to use one, feel free to print one out.
Extra help is available every Tuesday from 3:30-4:30. Please remember that you MUST fill out a permission form (below) and turn it in the day before in order to attend.
For some of our projects this year, I will be asking for parent volunteers. If you already know that you would like to volunteer in the future, please contact me. Otherwise, the need for parent volunteers will be included in the weekly update. Thank you! :)
