    Posted by Robyn Cohon on 5/22/2020

    Welcome to Summer.  I look forward to seeing everyone during the next school year.  If you are new to SAGE please check out the page for new students and everyone check out the for summer page.

    Supply lists will be updated closer to school but don't expect much change.

    I will be adding to the website periodically so check back once in a while.

    Have a great summer.  Read good books, play games, and find some outdoor activities (be mindful of the heat).

    See you in August.

    This week's Home Learning Blog:

    All assignments are in Google Classroom for students. 

    Most math classes have a quiz this week (4th grade has their stories due.  In math students have notes (in some cases videos) attached to assist with learning, some of these are found in the previous weeks.

    Reading classes will continue with a question connected to the literature and also have a Common Lit assignment.  I have started posting the Wax Museum Videos and will continue to post more as they come to me.

    Have a wonderful weeks and I miss you all.

    Welcome to Week 4 of Home Learning

    Hello  All:

    Please check your email and Google Classroom for changes in Virtual Class Meetings (formerly known as office hours).  Each class will be meeting twice a week at a designated time.  M/W will be Reading and T/TH Math.  Please check the times for each class.

    This weeks summary of learning will be as follows:

    ¾ Reading will continue with a new chapter each week in “A Long Way From Chicago” with discussion questions.  Common Lit will be assigned at times (not this week since students have their wax museum video). If a student scores under 80% it will be returned (by Friday) with no grade to re-evaluate.  They can see this in Google Classroom

    5/6 Reading will begin “The Bicentennial Man” with discussion questions.  This is a novella and will take around 3 weeks.  We will also discuss “Summer Toys” from last week (this is the story the movie AI was based). Common Lit will be assigned at times (not this week since students have their wax museum video).   If a student scores under 80% it will be returned (by Friday) with no grade to re-evaluate.  They can see this in Google Classroom

    All Reading – The wax museum will still happen but virtually.  The Copper Creek Community looks forward to this each year.  Please submit by May 1st a short (30-60 sec) video for the museum.  Be creative with what you have for costumes (no more shopping). 

    6th Math – our final unit will begin (8) probability.  Date quiz

    5th Math – Wrapping up unit 8 (final unit) data.  Data quiz

    4th Math – we will jump into algebra concepts and Math stories should be done by May 8th.

    3rd Math – wrap up decimals and then move into geometry.  Quiz this week.

    Welcome to the SAGE Blog Home Learning Edition:

    First Deep Breath and no Stress.  Below I have a brief overview of tasks for this week.  All tasks are in Google Classroom.

    Math for all grade levels is review through Khan Academy.  In order to me to see student's progress after clicking the link in classroom they must login using their google.  That is their school email (if they are logged into classroom the info will appear when logging in).

    Reading both groups have a pdf of literature to read.  This also counts as recommended independent reading time.

    3/4 ELA Reading will begin A Long Way From Chicago only reading the Chapter 1929.  These are some task related I would like students to try to get familar with formats.

    5/6  ELA Reading Will be reading two science fiction stories to prep for the novella we will read.  I know we have read one before.  There is a discussion question I would like students to try.

  • The next few weeks in SAGE

    Posted by Robyn Cohon on 2/5/2020

    Thank you for your patience during testing week.  I will be out 2/6-2/7 to attend  the State Gifted Conference.  There will be a sub on the first day.

    This Blog coveres the next few weeks.  Conferences are coming up the week of the 17th.  I will be available for drop in's (it is studentled conferences) on that Thursday until around 6:30.  If you wish to meet one on one just e-mail me.

    All ELA classes are working on resreach papers.  We are also each doing a literature piece that includes topics such as intolerance.  Also the new lit responses called Common Lit are proven a challenge which is good but I do not want frustration as we explore these higher level pieces and questions.  I will be dropping the lowest 3 grades (5/6) and 4 (3/4).  Any not completed will be counted as zeros and then be dropped as they low scores.

    Math classes- this week short quizzes, any week withouot a test will be a quiz

    3rd - completing Fractions.  The end of module 5 Assessment will be Thursday 2/13.  We will then go into Decimals the following week.

    4th -these students will be assessing on the end of module 6 thursday 2/13.  From there all assessments each week can come from anything we have done this year.  In class we will be exploring the remainder of the year as I like to call it, pull your hair out real world problem solving. 

    5th - Unit 6 - algebraic thinking.  Thursday 2/13 mid unit assessment and most likely the following Weds end of unit.

    6th - Unit 6 algebraic thinking.  End of unit assessment Thursday 2/13.  Then we will move into Data analysis.
