All students have a vocabulary quiz on Friday October 2.
**Annabel’s received their words on Monday of this week. Their homework must be completed by the start of class on Thursday October 1st. I will check their work and hand it right back to them so they can study for their quiz.***
Every group, except for the Annabel group, must have their reading packets completed by Friday. Five of the six stories have a short writing assignment at the end that, if the students choose to complete (by writing 5 sentences), they can earn 3 points extra credit towards each story. I thoroughly explained this to each class on Monday, so although this is optional, I encouraged all of them take advantage of this rare extra credit opportunity.
As previously posted yesterday, students will be having a science test on Thursday. We reviewed yesterday and today. Students were given examples of EVERY question on the test.
