We are well into our CAD unit (Computer Aided Drafting). Students have been using a computer to draw with. They are finding that this system is a huge technological advancement. The students are finding that there are patterns to CAD drawings and the use of the pattern help produce drawings rather quickly at the onset of the unit.
Students that are on Individual Education Plans are working on their monthly skills and probes. We are also doing skill building activities from Story Works and Scholastic Action Magazines. Students have also been practicing skills in writing.
I also have 2 groups of Guided Learning for grades 7th and 8th.
During this time homework is checked and teachers are notified if there is a need for more explanation. Grades are also monitored to see if there is a need for more individualized help.
