Welcome!

Welcome to Mrs. McCormack's webpage!
 
My name is Kelly McCormack and I teach 7th grade Math and Social Studies here at AMS.
I am a recent graduate of Union University in Jackson, TN where I received my degree in Education. I am passionate about teaching, learning, serving my students, and really encouraging my students to reach their full potential.
Your students are the reason I love teaching!!!
 
My husband, Luke, and I got married this summer and moved to Memphis! I am excited for this fun adventure at Appling Middle School!
What a joy it has been getting to know your students so far! I can already tell that this year will be great! :)
 
This webpage will be a place to find my homework assignments, uploaded files for your use, and assignments that your student might have missed. Email me if something you are looking for isn't on my webpage!

Announcements

Happy Sunday to all! Tomorrow and Tuesday in our math classes we will be taking the district wide assessment to check everyone's skills from what we have learned thus far. 
Please make sure your students laptops are fully charged for this test! (it is an online assessment)
 
Tutoring for this week is as follows: (2:15-3:15 pm)
Tuesday: Math Help
Wednesday: Homework Help
If you need an extra form let me know, I can send that home with your students. I have already noticed a difference in my students who have come to tutoring because it gives them some one-on-one help :) 
 
We will be having a test on Friday for both Social Studies and Math if all goes as planned!
Social Studies: Section 1 & 2 test over China's geography and the Sui, Tang, and Song dynasties.
Math: Combining Like-Terms
 
As per usual, let me know if you need anything extra from me or if you have any questions. The grade book should be up to date and more will be added through the week!
 
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday! I am excited to see all of your kiddos tomorrow morning! :)

7th Grade Picnic: Friday, Oct 6th

Hey parents! Our grade is having a picnic on Friday to enjoy the pretty weather and celebrate fall break coming up! :) Please send back to school the yellow form that I sent home with your students! They need it signed with the lunch selection chosen. This is very important and is due on Wednesday. I gave this out on Friday of last week. I still need half of my home rooms forms.
Thanks!
Mrs. McCormack

Upcoming Tests/Quizzes

Math:
Math Facts quiz on Thursday
Test over all operations involving fractions and decimals on Friday.
 
Social Studies:
Test over sections 3&4 on Friday.

Useful Website

A lot of my parents ask for websites to use at home for reinforcement of what we do in the classroom.
Here is one of the best:
Set your student up with a free account and make sure the settings are set to 7th grade math. They will have the opportunity to watch video tutorials of what we are doing in class AND have practice quizzes and it keeps up with your progress! Great website, I've been doing research to find the best one to tell you all about! Hope it is a useful resource to you! :)
This is a good start to where we are at in class:
Happy Thursday!
We are one step closer to the weekend!

Math Facts Quiz

Our math facts quiz is over number line equations tomorrow.
This is an easy way to pull up those math averages!
They got the exact duplicate of the quiz on Monday, we went over the answers on Tuesday and they had last night and tonight to review it! :) 

Math Homework

Make sure your students are doing the EVENS on their math homework worksheet tonight :) Tomorrow we will start Order Of Operations with fractions! 
Have a good night!

Go Jim Go!

Our School is participating in a fundraiser for Le Bonheur Children's hospital. It is a competition between homerooms to see which class can raise the most money. As of now, our homeroom has raised 12 dollars. Let's give what we can to support this local hospital!! Taking donations until Wednesday of next week. Check or cash! Thanks in advance! :) 

Social Studies Test

Due to guidance taking the place of Social Studies today, I have moved the Arab World Sections 1&2 test to Monday. They have their study guides and vocabulary flashcards to be looking over this weekend! Have a good day off tomorrow :)

Multiplying Fractions Test

We have our test tomorrow over multiplying and dividing fractions! We have been reviewing and I am confident they will do well. I am going to post a PowerPoint on my PowerPoint tab that is a review game for them! They can use this jeopardy game to help them prepare and have some sample questions.
Happy Wednesday!
