8ELA-Reading Journals and Spelling Tests were returned today. Letters have improved but some small details need to be corrected. We did a pre-check for spelling unit #3 then learned about nouns, specifically proper versus common and how to make singular either possessive or plural. HOMEWORK: SPELLING AND SKILLS ARE DUE WEDNESDAY. REMINDER FROM LAST WEEK THAT MOOD POEMS ARE DUE (GOOD COPY) TOMORROW AS ARE THE QUESTIONS FROM "SOLO TO THE POLE" BY CHRIS BONINGTON.
8SS-We learned about significant events from prehistory and plotted them, and other important dates on a timeline. NO HOMEWORK.
7SS-We had the Weekly Update and learned about self-tying shoes coming out next month by Nike, that only 57% of eligible voters vote, a bomb hoax evacuated all the schools in PEI, and that premium gas is a waste of money according to the AAA. I collected the Map Projections worksheet and we reviewed our next assignment which has us reviewing latitude and longitude and global locations. NO HOMEWORK.
