Using Teams in Office 365  

We have been using Teams in Office 365. All students know how to get on this although Internet access is necessary. I have posted textbook pages for definitions and copies of the slides we used for notes here. I added a tab called "What did we do in class today?" and have updated it every night (sometimes after 7 since I work another job several nights a week). Some students have had trouble opening the Files on Teams so I will now post the slides in the conversations tab. Click on them to open them fully.

Students should have definitions for 8 words on pg 1 that was due yesterday, Tues 9-12. We started them in class the previous week on Wed or Thursday depending on the class the student is in. We have answered 2 questions pg. 2 and have notes pg. 3 and 5. The Heat WS on pg 6 is to be done in class on Thursday, 9-14 and finished Friday, 9-15. It won't be considered late until Tuesday 9-19 (due by Monday 9-20). 

You can get the Teams app for your smartphone. You must login as your child. They can get the app on their phone as well. 

Heat Quiz on Wednesday, 9-20. I posted what to study each night on the conversations part of Teams and your child should have updated their calendar on Office 365. I also posted it on the calendar in this webpage. 

Welcome to the 6th Grade!  

Welcome to the 6th grade!    

I am so excited to begin this school year in our new building!  We will begin with heat and matter followed by wave properties and the various types of waves. We will then talk about light and sound waves.

Our digital notebooks using One Note and taking C-Notes are essential for class.  I will check science digital notebooks regularly for science notes and many graded assignments. 

Headphones or earbuds will be essential in all classes at DMS. We will be using a variety of internet sites that have sound and/or video clips for students.

The AVID class is an extra graded class. Although I teach all classes using AVID strategies, the AVID elective class will have opportunities to go deeper into AVID strategies as we follow the AVID curriculum.

Please check "Teams" in Office 365 for student assignments and files. We are learning this new program as we move away from Edmodo so be patient. I will update this calendar as well.
