I have updated my website (www.mrsbarrowsclass.pbworks.com) with this week’s classwork and homework. Just a couple of highlights:
1) Latin roots quiz on Thursday
2) Novel Game Information sent home today: Our next major project that takes place in the fourth quarter is called The Novel Game. Because this project requires that students read a self-selected novel, I handed out the materials/explanation of the assignment today. I am certainly not requiring students to work on it over track out, but my thought was that if students wanted to choose their novel and begin reading it over the break, it would take some load off next quarter. I would actually prefer that they not get too far into the project over the break, as I like to help guide them through the project as they go. I’d hate for them to have to redo work when they return. The students received a letter to take home today that outlines the project. Parents, please read and sign the letter and have your student bring it to class by this Thursday. There is a link on my website with Novel Game materials. Please let me know if you have any questions about it!
Have a wonderful afternoon!
