If you recall, I sent Chromebooks home with students on Friday to complete a project.  _7_ students completed the assignment.  They had already done all the research and only had to copy it onto a book.  I had lots of shocked young men and women when they found out it had to be finished at their recess time.  This was the one they had all lasts week to complete.  Several students chose to finish tonight at home.  If your student was one of the 7, be PROUD!  I certainly am.  ...Continue Reading

Hello Everyone!    I wanted to let you know that Chromebooks went home this weekend! The students were asked to work on an "Explorers Project" this week during our humanities block.  While several are very close to being finished, some have a lot of work to do.  For this reason, I allowed everyone to take their Chromebook home to finish the project and turn it in Monday.  I have a checklist, a student rubrik and a teacher rubrik- a 'scale' that shows the criteria for the project.  ...Continue Reading

Students took home their Social Studies book for the weekend.  Their Native American project is due next Friday.  They wrote a letter to you about the project and the learning they achieved this week. The letter is inside their textbook.  From the quick checks I made as they were writing, their letters looked amazing!! Make sure you take a look at your students. As always, thanks for your help. The students are making great progress. I am very proud of the growth they are making! ...Continue Reading

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! As I was going through the assignments from last week, I noticed a particularly high number of students who did not complete their Pearson Assignment this week.  It may be that your student just needs to hit submit!  If they're able, it would help greatly if they could finish the assignment and hit submit today rather than waiting for school tomorrow! Students love their recess time, and this is when I will have to have them complete it.   It would also give you a cha ...Continue Reading
