8ELA-We had our Reading period and I followed this with the introduction to our fiction projects.  We spent some time thinking about our character and setting, based on a photo. HOMEWORK:  SPELLING AND SKILLS DUE TOMORROW, CHARACTER AND SETTING WEBS DUE TOMORROW, "EVERYDAY IS EARTH DAY" Q 1-7 DUE TOMORROW.  SPECIAL TREAT:  NO JOURNALS THIS WEEK!

8SS-I collected pink questions today on the topic of "Who Should Possess the Rosetta Stone?"We corrected Egyptian Education today.  NO HOMEWORK.

7SS-We worked on Asia and Australia/Oceania maps today and will be starting the project on these two continents tomorrow.  Students will need to choose a continent-related news piece and be able to answer the "W" questions for it; they will also write a paragraph reflecting on how the topic of the news affects quality of life.  They'll choose from the following links, based on their own interests:
