1st and 2nd Grade Science

Hi Parents!

My goal for this class is to take a topic covered in the reading and do a craft with them.  I will read excerpts to them and ask them questions about the reading as we do the crafts.  Occasionally I have an experiment for them to do at home because it is not feasible for us to do in the classroom.  If the assignment comes from the notebook, I will either copy it or take a photo of it with my phone and text it to you.  I did not assign any other work except for a project later in the year for them to do at home.  Last week I wasn’t thinking and put an activity that you guys did not have. I will text it out to you soon.  Since there are only 4 students in the class, I will keep you updated through texts as needed.

Thanks!  Kristie Stevens  832-265-6924

7th & 8th grade Science

Hi Parents!

I sent out a syllabus in a calendar form with suggested daily assignments.  I will be checking the lab reports and study guides as a part of their grade.  Please grade (or have them grade) their study guides with a red pen prior to coming to class.  This is essential to them making a good grade on the tests.

I will let you know of any changes to the schedule.  In October, we are doing back to back chapters one week.  All other chapters will take two weeks to cover.  Once I gauge how well the kids are keeping up, I will throw in an additional group project.

Please let me know if you have any questions or if your child is struggling with anything.

Thanks, Kristie Stevens
