Welcome to 7th Grade Math
Hello! My name is Shannon Simkins, and I am thrilled to be your child's math teacher this year. This is my fifth year here at Lonoke, and my fourth year teaching 7th grade math.
The 7th grade math curriculum focuses on students gaining confidence in their number sense by applying skills and concepts they have learned in previous grades to successfully build a strong base for Algebra.
The basics of Algebra is the beginning, middle and the end of the 7th grade math classroom. One of the best ideas of the CCSS is: inch wide, mile deep. Students will be working on key skills and building on those key skills throughout the year instead of working on a skill for a week, test and then leave it behind.
I realize that questions and concerns will arise. Parents, please do not hesitate to call or email me at any time if there is something that you have a concern about. I will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
This is going to be a great year, and I know that my students will have meaningful learning experiences. I look forward to spending the year with all of you!
