8M ELA-We're ahead a class or two from 8B so we used our one period today to study for Spelling and Skills tests tomorrow. We could have used this period to prep for our Reading Conference tomorrow or work another subject. This was a general work class. HOMEWORK: STUDY FOR SPELLING TEST TOMORROW, SKILLS TEST TOMORROW. PREP FOR READING CONFERENCE TOMORROW. NO JOURNALS.
8B ELA-We corrected this week's Spelling and Skills lessons. We then read the non-fiction article "Survival Shelters" by R. D. Lawrence then worked on questions. HOMEWORK: STUDY FOR SPELLING TEST TOMORROW, SKILLS TEST TOMORROW. PREP FOR READING CONFERENCE TOMORROW. NO JOURNALS. SURVIVAL SHELTERS Q 1-5.
8SS-We corrected questions 1-6 on Paleolithic Times. Question 7 is a real thinking question: How is it that if we all share the same ancestors (way, way, back in time), how is it we are all so different around the world? We'll discuss this one next class. NO HOMEWORK.
Food Drive--Please bring in your canned stew or chili. Beans are also good. The October Newsletter actually lists dry pasta; please know that that item is for November.
We are looking for the canned items for October.
