Block 1

This week week we took our mid topic 1 assessment. It covered lesson 1-3 in topic 1 that included adding, subtracting and multiplying whole numbers and decimals and multiplying fractions. The tests are on the computer and students worked hard with learning how to work problems out on paper and pencil and then transfer their work online. Students then practiced analysing their tests to make the corrections. We did this together in class so they saw and heard me model thinking and reworking of the problems to find the correct answer. They completed a corrections sheet and had the opportunity to earn 1/2 a point back on any missed question that was corrected on the sheet correctly and completely. We also took notes on types of errors on missed answers. Now we are moving to division of fractions, mixed numbers and whole numbers and solving problems with rational numbers. We should be taking the end of topic assessment toward the end of next week. Students began logging and tracking their iReady lessons. iReady is a vital piece of our math program as it meets the students where they are. This will help fill in math skill gaps and/or provide extensions or accelerated work on an individual need.  The students will have the next two Mondays to work on and complete their Topic 1 Pick a Projects.

Mrs Stages students will be seen by her on Tuesdays and Thursdays for math.

A reminder, our classrooms for math are 'flipped' classrooms, meaning the students will learn the lesson at home via EnVision online and with their workbooks and then we will practice, ask questions and check our understanding and ability to do the skill of that lesson in class the next day.  This approach is being used in middle and high school and provides more classroom time for teachers to work with students whole group, small group or individually during face to face class time

If a student is absent from school they can access the days lesson in Google Classroom. It is important that the work missed is made up prior to returning to class if at all possible. The lessons are presented online and the students follow along in their math workbooks. They then work out the problems and record answers in their math workbook  The students have their math notebook that will be a resource students may use throughout the year.

willing to learn
 Hello!!
My name is Andi Skolout and I am so excited to be spending this next year with you and your 6th grade student. I have been teaching in the district for over ten years. This will be my sixth year teaching 6th grade math here at SCE. I feel I have really found a home here. I love teaching in DCSD. Teaching is a second career for me and I graduated from Regis University of Denver.
I have high expectations of all my students in their learning and behaviors. At this point in a student's educational career I believe they should know and show respect, responsibility, and a resolve of learning to the best of their ability. I love what I do and I work very hard to ensure my students are learning, and hopefully, loving learning. I look forward to a great year!!
