Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Tanya Bland
Welcome to 6th and 7th Grade Resource! Together, we will have a great and successful year! Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have! My email is email@example.com. My google account is firstname.lastname@example.org
The 3rd Quarter ended on March 13. Students have the opportunity to improve their grade by following the instructions provided and reading the email that was sent to students on their school gmail account on Monday, March 30th. If you are happy with your 3rd Quarter grade, then you need not take any additional action at this time. Information about 4th Quarter assignments will be coming to you soon.
For Ms. Bland's resource class:
Any student who would like to improve their resource grade, can do 1 to 3 journal entries and submit to me through email. Each journal entry must be at least 10 complete sentences in paragraph form. (Students with accommodations may reduce the number of sentences according to their individual support.) Each journal entry must also, have a "self editing statement" about your personal reflection on your writing. For example, if you forgot to add correct ending punctuation or you forgot to capitialize the letter of a proper name/noun, please write a statement/sentence that tells me what you forgot to do AND correct the mistake you found. Another self editing example could be, you aren't sure if a word is spelled correctly, so, circle or star the word you feel is spelled incorrectly. Then, use a resource, (technology/word check or even another person in your house) to proofread the spelling.
So, how many should I write? I would suggest if you have a grade of C or D, do 3 journal entries. If you have a B, do one or two journal entries. If you have an A and would like extra credit or you just need to practice writing and/or express some thoughts during this time period, I encourage you to do that as well!:) You all know that I love to hear your thoughts and ideas!
Topics of choice for your journal entry are:
How I feel about doing online schooling.
I wish I were back in school learning because...
In math this year, I learned and improved in the area(s) of .....
For the rest of the school year, I hope to ........
The best math strategies I learned this year are ......
The hardest thing about English is ......
During the mandated closure, students can access instructional content for my class through my Google classroom. Look for more to come!:)
PLEASE MAKE SURE THIS OPTIONAL WRITING CHOICE IS COMPLETED AND TURNED IN BY April 8th.
I hope that everyone is feeling well and keeping positive spirits while we are apart! I miss everyone so much, but I know we can do this! Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions through email at this time.
As I always say, WE ARE TEAM BLAND AND WE WILL REACH OUR GOALS TOGETHER!
Please take care and we will talk soon!
Ms. Bland :)
