One more day of this crazy flipped schedule. Hooray!!
Today you worked on your character study and extra credit packet; both are due on Friday, April 20th when you take your quiz. Also, you received a "What you need to know..." sheet.
If you have misplaced any of these I am attaching the files below.
Quiz Ch. 1 - 7 of Flush this Friday, April 20.
Thank you for staying quiet in the halls today while 7th & 8th grade were testing.
Hooray, we are finished with Milestone testing. On Monday, we will return to semi-normal; our schedule will be flipped due to 7th grade testing, but all classes will meet every day.
You should have turned in your chapters 1 - 3 crossword puzzle today and started working on the character study for chapters 1- 7. The character study is due on Friday, April 20, the same day as your quiz over chapters 1 - 7. There is an extra credit opportunity if you choose to complete it. See Mrs. Hanse to get the extra credit packet.
Enjoy your weekend and relax.
In the brief time we had in class today, you received a chapter 1 - 3 Crossword Puzzle that is due this Friday, April 13 and a Character Study for chapters 1 - 7 that is due on Friday, April 20. THIS IS NOT HOMEWORK.THERE WILL BE PLENTY OF TIME TO WORK ON IT IN CLASS!!!
The following people have not turned in their field trip permission form and payment: Nathan Burke, Malaika Ngana, Weston Robertson, Kemaria Scruggs, Mikel Witherspoon and Tyndall Young. The extended deadline is tomorrow. This is a hard deadline, no forms or payments will be accepted after tomorrow. The forms are attached. Also, your parents have been sent an email that include the forms.
Towards the end of the 2nd quarter I started sending emails and posting on my blog that each student would need a copy of the book Flush by Carl Hiaasen by Monday, March 26, so we could start reading the book immediately upon returning from spring break. While many students did have a copy of the book, either electronically or hard copy, several students did not have a book today. Beginning tomorrow students without a copy of the book will receive an Eagle Card mark for coming to class unprepared. Barnes and Noble has several copies and there is a used book store on Main street in Powder Springs that probable has copies. Our final unit is based on this book, so your student definitely needs a copy. If purchasing a copy is an issue for your family, please email me, so this can be taken care of. Thank you in advance for your support in this matter.
Today we took what I hope is our final Touchstone of the year. This was a good representation of what some of the questions will be like on the Milestone.
Don't forget - Reading Lab is tomorrow morning at 8:15.
If you need to watch the video for the wetlands question, I am attaching the link at the bottom.
In class today, you read two articles one about Florida's Economy and the other title "Welcome to Florida." We will grade the questions for the latter article tomorrow. Don't forget your homework: Find out what the top 5 industries are in Georgia.
DON'T FORGET: Bring your copy of Flush by Carl Hiaasen to school on Monday, 3/26.
HW: Finish "Florida Diverse Population" reading and worksheet. Due Monday, 3/26
Don't forget to bring your copy of Flush to school by Monday, March 26.
