Make up work; If you forgot about the English assignment last week, you still need to get that done. ALSO, some of you did not finish the 3 questions from reading today… Complete sentences, correct spelling, punctuation, grammar. I mean it. Do it right or do it over… (class motto)

Science; Fill out the calendar for September. The first Monday in the month was the first. Then, tomorrow morning, go outside and try to find the moon. Draw what it looks like. Note the time of day and where the moon is in the sky. ALSO, if you had notes to rewrite or to catch up on, take care of that for Thursday.
Tomorrow is Patriot Day in honor of the men and women whose lives were forever changed by the events of September 11. Please wear red, white and blue in remembrance.
Read Hatchet, Chapter 3. Write a summary (3-8 sentences). Find 10 words that you think will be on the vocab list. AND finish the vocab crossword puzzle from Chapter 2
What a week! We spent a TON of time getting to know each other, sorting out schedules, and preparing our journals and binders. We also took a few SHORT math quizzes to see what we remember. We met our Kinder-buddies, took them to lunch, played at recess, and helped them find their busses to get home. So many responsibilities!
Just a note; I rarely give homework on the weekends… HOWEVER, I ask that students complete any homework that they did not get done the past week, OR that they do a better job on the work that they DID do. Confusing? This past week, I asked students to write a few sentences about what they read in chapters 1 and 2 of Hatchet. We talked about their summaries in class. When I asked students if they thought they could have done a better job on the summaries, 3/4 of the class knew that they could/should have written better. Remind students to do their BEST, not the minimum. This might be a good time to talk to students about doing their best work
I will take some time this weekend to get students’ user names and passwords completed for all the amazing sites we have this year. I will have students attach these to their planners, so please help me get them into the habit of bringing planners home.
Please save the link to this blog page. I post most information and homework before 6 every day… or I TRY to post before 6! :) If you subscribe to the page, you can get an email notification every day if that is easier.
Reading; Hatchet, chapter 2 AND a 3-5 sentence summary in your reading journal
Reading; Hatchet, Chapter 1 worksheet. Answer the questions on the worksheet not in your journal. We are going to work on this more tomorrow
Math; Finish page 6
Please make sure to bring your notebooks and school supplies EVERYDAY!!! You NEED the items on the supply list.
I will have user names and passwords for students before Monday. They will be attached into planners, so remember to bring planners home and back to school everyday
