Each Friday, I will post the tentative plans for the upcoming week here, in this blog section. Please know that these plans are "optimistic", meaning that I plan for a little more than I anticipate that we be able to accomplish. It is very important to respond to students' needs so if I find that more time is needed for an activity or if re-teaching would be helpful before a test or quiz, I may "bump" things back a day in the plans. This means that if you check the list on Monday, the activity that was scheduled for Friday might not actually happen on Friday. I will do my very best to keep the list updated in a timely fashion so that students and parents will have an accurate reference throughout the week.

Is this page just for parents and guardians?
No! This blog is for anyone who wants to know what is going on in our class (that should include students too!). Just because the language is written with parents/guardians in mind, that doesn't mean that students won't benefit from checking in with this blog. It just means that parents don't have to wade through all of the resources posted under the instructional unit section of this site. Likewise, that section of the website isn't meant to be a "parent-free" zone. Parents/guardians can use the resources posted there to help their student or just to stay in touch with what's going on in the classroom.
