This week we are starting the Terra Nova testing. I am posting the topic for each day was well as the homework for the week. Unfortunately, we will not see every class everyday and we will not know the schedule until Tuesday. The seventh and eight grade should have their math corrections as well as their letter, that illustrates their own own similar problem in a letter format. We have in class discussed the requirements numerous times. I am posting the work as a test and as a project, thereby, allowing one work to count as two. Both the fifth and sixth grades have handed in their work with a few exceptions. All work turned in so far has seen two one hundreds posted to the grade book. On 10/20, we will have a test based on the work for this upcoming week and the topics will be stated in the weekly agenda. I am posting as well the homework for the week.
I will continue to give extra help at lunch time. At present 15 students from the fifth, sixth, seventh, grade have attended, but no one from the eight grade.
