8ELA-I handed back marked Spelling Tests today--students need to put more effort into preparing for these large, multi-unit test.  We have discussed a study strategy so I expect marks will be better in the future.  We worked on Unit 5 Spelling today and a grammar booklet focussing on irregular verbs.  I assigned four pages from the booklet.  This was followed by Reading Class.  HOMEWORK:  SPELLING UNIT 5, GRAMMAR BOOKLET PAGES 148, 149, 150, 151.  NON-FICTION PARAGRAPHS-ROUGH DRAFTS-DUE TOMORROW.

8SS-We reviewed the concept of What is History? and Why Study History?  We also reviewed the idea of primary and secondary sources when studying history.  Students were assigned a Vocabulary Circle which reviews these ideas (great preparation for next week's test)--it is due tomorrow.  HOMEWORK:  VOCABULARY CIRCLE.

7SS-We orally reviewed the physical features of North and South America and did our Weekly Updates.  We then shifted gears and started our continent projects.  NO HOMEWORK.

**Please remember that there is no school on Friday.
