Happy Memorial Day!
This week is the last week of classes! I will not be opening another section to work on in Edmentum.
If you have completed all of the assignments in Edmentum and/or the farm project you have completed all of the work for my class.
Power and Structural Technology was opened last Monday and is the last section in Edmentum.
If you have not completed all of your assignments, they are all due by May 27th!
Our last Zoom meeting will be this Friday May 29th at 10 am! Come join to say See you later to the animals!
Please let me know if you have questions or need help with anything!
You guys did an amazing job with this distance learning and I am so proud of all of you!
8th Graders I will see you on June 4th for our Glow Party Celebration.
Good morning and Happy Monday!
We have only 2 weeks left of distance learning! You have all been doing great.
For the last 2 weeks, students that are all caught up on Edmentum assignments can choose one of the following options:
1. Continue with Edmentum and complete 2 more assignments/sections on Edmentum
2. Complete a project in place of 2 Edmentum assignments. The project is Create your own Farm. Insturctions are under Assignments or click here Create Your Own Farm
This project is only an option of students that have done all Edmentum assignments and are completely caught up.
I have unlocked a new assignment in Edmentum for the week for students who will be continuing on Edmentum. This week: Unit 2- Technology and Agriculture pretest and Power and Structural Technolgy section (tutorials and Mastery Test).
If you are a paper packet student and would like to do the assignment, please contact me.
Please let me know if you have any questions! email@example.com
Have a great week!
Hello Everyone! 5-7-2020
Let me just say, I am so proud of all of you for the hard work you have been putting in to getting assignments completed.
You guys are Rockstars! Parents that goes for you as well, thank you for your dedication, persistence and support. Also Happy Mother's Day to all the moms :)
For this week only there will be only one zoom meeting and it is at 9:00 am tomorrow (Friday). Not mandatory but there will be a little game to start our meeting off :)
As we talked about before and most of you are well aware, all assignments are on Edmentum.
At this time you should have the following sections completed:
Animal Science, Food Science, Time and Resource Management, and Customer Service.
Critical Thinking became avaiable on Monday and is the section you should all be working on now.
Please let me know if you need help on anything. I am here for you guys!
A little update on the animals: Everyone is doing great! This goats and chicks are getting so big! Fred the turkey is also thoroughly enjoying his life here on the farm with me as well :)
Join the zoom meeting tomorrow morning, the animals love to join our meetings!
Hi Everyone! 4/21/2020
Most of you have been logging into Edmentum and getting assignments completed so that is great! Good Job!
If you have not logged into Edmentum and worked through Animal Science and Food Science you are behind.
I do not want to see anyone getting behind. If you are struggling with Edmentum please reach out to me! I am here to help you.
Every week a new section will be unlocked. You have a week to work on each section, IF you stay on track.
Week 1- Animal Science
Week 2- Food Science
Week 3- (the current week) Time, Tasks and Resource Management. This is the section you should be working on this week. If you have not completed the other do those first.
The Mastery Test for each section must be completed to get a grade.
The Grade/ Score in Edmentum is not your true grade. Your true grade is in Skyward.
If you have a 50 or a * as a grade in any section it means it is missing.
You guys are doing great and as much as I miss all of you I think we ae doing our best to work through this.
Thank you students and parents for the cooperation and continued communication.
Please let me know if I can help with anything :)
No zoom meetings tomorrow, have a great weekend! :)
Also, here is a pretty interesting article to read regarding current events https://farmprogress.com/farm-policy/perdue-proposes-direct-milk-meat-purchases
Logging into Edmentum!
If you are having trouble logging into Edmentum or if you have questions or issues please let me know.
I can't help you guys if I don't know there is a problem.
To clarify, Edmentum is the program you will be using to complete assignments for this class.
Unit 1- Animal science is unlocked and if you haven't finished that, that is the first section that needs to be completed.
The next section is Food Science. That one opened on Monday and you have all week to complete that.
The grade that will go into the grade book is the mastery test grade. If you do not get a good grade on it, you can redo the tutorials and it will unlock for more chances.
Again, if you have questions, issues or concerns please reach out to me. I am here for you and wil help you in any way I can!
Here is the guide to assist with logging in.

Anyone intersted in starting their own garden?
The University of Florida has a new program called the Victory2020 Garden Movement. They will send you seeds in the mail and then there are weekly tutorials that will guide you through the planting process.

I am also going to join and start a garden with you guys. We can monitor the progress during our zoom meetings.
This is not mandatory but I think it will be a fun distance learning experience.
