COVID-19 Update:

Hello, below you will find the plan on how I will be teaching science these next few weeks. All assignments will be posted by Monday morning at 9:00 AM and they will be due by Friday at 3:00 PM. I plan on utilizing Study Island during this time. Study Island has lessons and flashcards for each topic to help students learn/review the content. Students should plan on having multiple Study Island assignments each week. I will also be assigning BrainPop activities to help teach the content. Login information for BrainPop will be sent out on dojo and email. 

I will be sending out a Dojo each week going over the assignments and any other expectations for that week. This is a reminder that 70% is required for a Study Island assignment before it is considered complete. 
The calendar on my website will also be a place you can find all assignment due dates posted. 

For this week, students received two MAP science prep packets before heading off into spring break. Students should complete session #1 (pages 1-22) along with the Study Island I have assigned, “The Water Cycle”. Students are also required to watch the BrainPop over "The Water Cycle". The Study Island will be due this Friday at 3:00 pm. Since the packets are considered written work, they are strictly practice. I will be posting the answers to session #1 on Friday. If your student misplaced the packets, here is the link: https://dese.mo.gov/sites/default/files/asmt-gl-practice-form-sci-gr8.pdf

Ms. Amerison still plans on sending “U” list and “1’s” to parents on Monday’s. You can contact me over email: dorrellj@universityacademy.org or Dojo. Please don't hesitate to reach out during this time, I will make sure I respond within 24 hours.

Thanks,
