Procedures for Middle School Science Class

1. Look up vocabulary words for each chapter. Keep them in a notebook. Bring them to class each day!

2. We take notes and discuss each lesson. Make sure you are taking good notes!

3. Vocabulary quizzes - making flashcards to use as study aids often makes learning the material easier. Caution: do not wait until the night of the test to make flashcards - make a few each night as the material is covered in class.

4. Note taking sheets are given after each chapter to see if the students are taking good notes. **This is a grade**

5. We will have a review day before the test. (Game Day) **It is very important to pay attention during review**

6. Chapter tests will cover everything in the student's notes.

7. Projects are given through the year, but our big project is the Science Fair. Grades 5, 7, 9, & 11. The Science Fair will be held February 6, 2011.

8. Please note that I do not give a lot of written homework but I do tell students to review each night the notes, vocabulary words and to read the material from the book. Good sudy habits can make a big differences in performance on tests.

9. Communicate with your child about grades!!! I will send home mid-nine week averages.
