FELP- Fun Educational Learning Program
Starting 2nd Semester we will be starting a program called FELP. This program is meant to provide a challenge to students who are able to be self directed and looking to learn beyond the material that is taught in class. THIS IS NOT MEANT TO BE MORE WORK (classwork/most homework is eliminated)-- JUST MORE CHALLENGING during class time AND FOCUSED ON STUDENTS INTEREST in given Unit.
Click the FELP folder in the locker and look at the FELP Packet. Many times students choose not to challenge themselves, so I wanted to make the info available to parents as well. Please discuss this with your child and see if they are up for it :)
We are desperate for GLUE STICKS! We have about two more weeks worth of work and then ours are done.
Thank you to those of you who have donated disinfecting wipes and Kleenex we use them daily!
Welcome to Mrs. Twiss' Website
We will have homework on most nights, please check to make sure that your child has completed the homework that has been assigned for that night. They can also be studying for upcoming quizzes.

Study Guide Grading
Study Guides are not graded for accuracy, but graded on completion. If study guides are not done chances are that the quiz grade will not be as good as it could be!
Questions are assigned on a nightly basis. The following day students will receive stamps for completing the assigned questions on time. The day of the quiz, study guides are turned in.
Study guides are graded based on stamps and corrections made in red pen.
1 point per stamp and 1 point for making corrections.
If a student has no stamps they will automatically be given half credit.
If a student is absent when the study guide is stamped, it is up to them to ask for the stamps they were absent for.
In order for students to participate in Review Jeopardy for the Semester Final, they must have all study guides completed and with them. There will be NO study guide given for the semester final!
