Thanksgiving is so close

Hey there!

Veteran's Day. As one who has brothers, cousins, a parent, and a grandparent who have served in the military at one point in their life, it is an awesome day to take and be reverent and grateful for those who have dedicated years of service and for some, their very lives, for our freedom. 
So while you enjoy your Monday off, remember those and their families who have sacrificed for us all.

Science 9/10:

This week has been a rough one when it comes to being productive in this class. Homework this week, please read through section 7.2 so we can somewhat keep on track and move on before Thanksgiving break.


Pre-Algebra: 

I might have assigned homework if we had class today but lucky you! Exponents have been fun and I feel confident in what you all have been doing in class. Keep it up! See you next week and have a great long weekend!


WV History: 

As some of you highlighted, we didn't get to do our county quiz today. We will do that if we have class on Tuesday, so please be prepared. We'll also hopefully get into chapter 8.


Algebra 1: 

Slopes! We're working on chapter 3 with the Cartesian plane. Read 3.3 on page 101-103 (Slope Definition & Slope Equation). We'll get into those lesson this week.

Science 7/8: 

STUDY! Test 4 will be this week sometime. Possibly Tuesday but I'm uncertain about Christmas play practice scheduling. Use Quizlet. My username is s_thies
You'll find the test study guide under Science 7 & 8. Review the terms over and over. If you do it at least once a day, I have confidence that you will master it.



Health 11/12:


Not much to say here folks. 😀


Enjoy the weekend, 

Much love,
-Miss Thies

It's November!

Hey everyone,

Who can believe it is November?! I feel like school just started and I'm still working on getting into the swing of things.

We started Christmas play practice today! Woohoo!


Science 9/10:
 For those of you who were not here today... we took Quiz 13. You will need to make it up so please use Quizlet to help study for that one. You can find it under Mrs. Lefler's Quizlet account or mine. (Sasha_lefler or s_thies)

Also, homework for the weekend is reading parts of section 7.2 of our text and then writing the definitions of the following terms. You can write these terms and definition or you can type them. Please have your name, the date, and the class listed at top right hand of your page.

Double bond
Lewis Structure
Polar molecule
Covalent networks
Formula network

Pre-Algebra:
You guys seem to be doing pretty good with exponents. No homework this weekend. We'll get into more of them this coming week along with a quiz and some speed tests. (Because I know how much you all love those.)


WV History: Monday we will wrap up chapter 7 in the classroom and on Tuesday we will take the chapter 7 test.
**IMPORTANT** For those of you who do not have the text book on a flash drive (because you can't find your flash drive, it didn't work the first time, or you never had it, PLEASE be sure to bring one in on Monday.) You will want to have it for the sake of doing some guided reading homework at home due to potential interruptions with the Christmas play.

Algebra 1:
I feel like you all seemed to get a better understanding of the lesson today. If you want some bonus, you can attempt some of the problems we were working on. You can get bonus for attempting them and extra for actually getting them right. The max possible points 15.

1 point = for attempting a problem.
+

2 points = for actually getting it right 
= 3 points possible for the attempt and correct answer(s).
So if you do, 5 and get them all right, you'll get 15 points. If you do 7 and only get 3 right, you'll get 13 bonus points.


Science 7/8: 
Monday we will take Quiz 12! Please be sure to use Quizlet to study the terms that you will need to be familiar with. 

Health 11/12:  
As long as we're doing the work in the classroom, we will stay on track. If you miss a day, you will have to make that up on your own study time. However, the books will remain in my classroom. So if you need to catch up on something, you will have to ask me when you have a study hall and I will allow you to work on it during that time and then turn it back in. 

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend! I will be resting and hoping getting over whatever disease has caused my body to feel so yucky these last two days.  

Love, 
Miss Thies

Science 9/10

https://quizlet.com/_5ics28 https://quizlet.com/333160208/matter-energy-quiz-12-pg-113-122-flash-cards/

Have a great weekend!
See you Monday!

25% Of The Way There

Grade cards came back this week for the first 9 weeks which means we are 25 % done with the school year. Incredible! 

You all make my job a lot of fun! 
There have been some changes to the schedule so we are going to run with it to see how it rolls. Please be patient and do your best to be where you're supposed to be. The schedule is on the door of the science lab (room 5.) 😀

Science 9/10:
This is a new thing for me y'all. I think we will have some fun with it though. I will make the study guide on Quizlet for our next quiz so you can go over that this weekend. You'll be able to find it under my username : s_thies and I'll have a designated class folder.


Pre-Algebra:
We finally get to jump into algebra this coming week! Hooray! There will be lots to get familiar with so come ready to learn. There will be no homework this weekend because we are at a good stopping point before our next section.

WV History:
We're jumping into chapter 7 this coming week! Our weekly county quiz has been officially moved to Friday's. If for some reason, we won't be here that Friday, it would then fall on the following Monday. This week's counties are Week 5 on Quizlet. Angel had made up each study set but I've added them to our WV History class folder under my username.

Algebra 1: 
Due to the early out today, I'd like you guys to take a look at lesson 2.7 as homework. We've gone over a few parts of it but I'd like you to see what you can determine from it. It has the same principles as the problems we've been working on but this is an important lesson because we need to know how to manipulate a formula to find the missing piece.

Science 7/8:
We will take Quiz 11 on Monday so be sure to check out the study set on Quizlet. Mrs. Lefler left it up under her username : sasha_lefler. I've also added it to my own Quizlet profile under the class folder. It's s_thies and it will be under Science 7/8.

Health 11/12: A new class. Woohoo! I am uncertain as to when our books will arrive but according to the current schedule, we will have health every Thursday and Friday right after lunch. Like I briefly explained in classes, we will have paces and work through various things to discuss the topics taught in the book. I think it'll be fun. 


I hope you all have an awesome weekend and hooray for the early out! 

Love,
Miss Thies

Midweek News

Hey!

So... We've come to the end of our first 9 weeks. Report cards will be sent home on Thursday. Parents, this is more so a heads up for you. 😉

Also, I'd still like my classes to participate in helping fill the Christmas shoe boxes for Samaritan's Purse. Participation will result in a bonus. 😁 If you need a reminder of what supplies you can get, let me know! You can also check out their website:

A new season

Hey all!


Starting Monday there will be some changes to the schedule due to rearranging things in the wake of Mrs. Lefler resigning. She will be missed but we shall carry on! 
Today marks the end of the 9 weeks. How fast has this flown by?!

Pre-Algebra: You don't have any homework this weekend, hooray!
However, for anyone willing to do any extra bonus work over the weekend to help boost your grade before your report cards are sent home, you can work on the following:
pg. 94-95 Sharpening Skills (all 15 questions)

pg. 102 Sharpening Skills (all 10 questions)

Any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

WV History: Some of us didn't quite make it to the end of the 6th chapter today in guided reading so we will be sure to finish that up on Monday and test on chapter 6 on Wednesday. 
The next week of County Quizzes is Wk. 4. Angel renamed the Quizlet study guides so you can find this week's counties under week 4. Her username is amichelle_3


Algebra 1:
Bonus work for the weekend, if you so choose: Blue Boxes on page 64-65. There are 15 questions all together. If you turn those in completed on Monday, there will be a bonus added to your grade which may help your report card. Just try it!


Bible 7/8:I will get your memory verse quiz graded and I have already updated grades for Test 2 that you took today.
Even though I will not be having you all for Bible anymore, I would still like to complete the shoe boxes so if you have items to bring in, please do so this coming week! 


Bible 9-12:
I would like you guys to still be a part of the shoe boxes so if you have any items to bring in, please do so on Monday or anytime this upcoming week!


No more Miss T for Bible....

Guys, it's been real and it's been fun. It's been real fun. Some of you I will still have for Science but the rest of you junior and seniors... go with God. Make good choices. And remember, it's not about you. Put and keep Jesus at the center and you'll be alright. And don't forget to take care of those rust spots.


In closing this post, congratulations... You all made it to Friday without 10 tally marks for HANDS. Oh my stars. Honestly though, I was being a little gracious and you all should have had 10. Let's practice self-control. You are going to need it in life and you might as well start now. Otherwise it will cost you, here and later. 😁

Love as always,
Miss Thies
