Monday Oct 1 and Tuesday Oct 2

Mr Sorenson is at a Skills USA Leadership Conference.  The following are the substitute plans for these two days
 
 

Sub Instructions for Monday and Tuesday

  • Third block planning, and you have first lunch each day.
  • ABSOLUTELY NO TOOLS AND NO STUDENTS AT BACK BENCHES.
  • Students may go to the restroom ONE at a time. If they abuse it shut that down also.
  • Attendance sheets attached.
  • Office and Storage room are off limits at all times.
  • Workbenches are to remain turned off.

 

Monday Oct 1

  • First Block: Crossword puzzle "VEX UNIT 1" they may work together on this, but EACH student is responsible for doing it.   The 3 Advanced studies kids are to write ‘weekly work logs for the first 4 weeks of school’.  The document is in their folder.  Have them keep those in their folders to be checked on Wed.
  • Second Block: Crossword puzzle: "Electronics So Far".  Again, they may work in groups but each student should do one.  
  • Bull Pride will be first block, have them write an email to me telling me something about them that nobody knows or would be surprising. I WILL NOT share this with anyone, I just want to get a glimpse at who they are.  Examples: Aspire to be professional musician, athlete.
  • Third Block: PLANNING
  • Fourth Block: Same as first block

 

Tuesday Oct 2

  • First Block: I want them to go back and using Unit 1 material to create their own Quizziz or Kahoot games.  In groups of two or three they are to develop a game that includes 20 questions and yes they may use pictures from the curriculum.  THEY ARE TO EMAIL ME THE LINK to their game.
  • Second Block: Working ALONE, each student is to do the Basic Circuits Challenge "Powers of Ten" activity. MINIMUM acceptable grade is 94%.  When finished they are to do "Color Code" ALONE. Same criteria  You can record their grades on the attached roster sheets.
  • BULL PRIDE will be second block. have them write an email to me telling me something about them that nobody knows or would be surprising. I WILL NOT share this with anyone, I just want to get a glimpse at who they are.
  • Third Block planning
  • Fourth Block: Same as First Block.
