Math: LCM and GCF Worksheet - Due March 8th
Science: Behavioral and Structural Adaptations Slides Finished
Reading: 5 steps for 2 years after high school to lead to success
Writing: Poem portfolio - Due March 14th
In math, we reviewed least common multiple (LCM) and greatest common factor (GCF). We did a worksheet about those two topics that is due tomorrow at 8:15. All work needs to be shown.
We began our Wax Museum project. The project will be about important people during the American Revolution. We spent time going over the very early causes of the Revolutionary War. We will continue taking notes tomorrow. Students need to be thinking about why the Proclamation of 1763 was the spark for the Revolutionary War. The students will be assigned their important person on Monday and the project will be explained on that day.
Students were responsible for having all their slides finished about their fictitious animal’s adaptations. They need to have 8 behavioral adaptations and 8 structural adaptations. The speaker notes in each slide should clearly explain the adaptations. Tomorrow, they will work on the final slide, which is about the facts of their animal.
Today, students were assigned to explain the things they plan on doing for the first 2 years after high school. Some students may choose to go straight to college, some may choose to work and save money, others may go into the military. This needs to be done in Google Classroom.
We assigned the final project assignment for poetry. Each student needs to create a portfolio of 5 poems. Each poem must be a different style. They can use any type of poem that we have covered in class. If it is a poem that can have multiple stanzas, it must have at least 3 with a rhyme scheme. The poems must all make sense.
As always, if students use their time wisely in class, they should have little to nothing to take home. However, this is not the case for many students. We encourage you to go through their assignment with them. We have started writing in agendas at the end of the day. Students should have the assignments and due dates written in their agendas. Each student was given an agenda at the beginning of the school year. If they have lost it, then they need to figure out how to keep track of the assignments in class. A notebook will work just as well if kept organized.
Finally, we would like to leave you with a quote today from the greatest superhero of all time, Batman, “Our greatest glory is not in ever falling, but in rising every time we fall.”
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
IN THIS CLASS, IT IS NOT ABOUT WHAT WE KNOW, IT IS ABOUT WHAT WE DO WITH WHAT WE KNOW!
