Greetings from the air as I fly to California!
Please remember and take care of the following today:
If you need any details that don’t appear in this blog post, look at Agendas 72-75. Today is Day 76 but I did not make a PowerPoint for you. If the Agendas and this post don’t help, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or text me at my Google Voice number: 719.357.5837.
I CANNOT PICK UP ASSIGNMENTS FROM THE NETWORK INBOX WHILE I AM AWAY, SO BE SURE YOU EMAIL YOUR DOCUMENT ITSELF, A LINK TO YOUR DOCUMENT, OR IF YOU ARE USING GOOGLE DOCS, SHARE IT WITH email@example.com. THIS IS THE ONLY WAY TO GET YOUR CREDIT!
1. Everyone must take Typing Test 8 at www.learn2type.org or www.10fastfingers.com. Please turn in your score by texting it to me (with your name), emailing it to me, or by recording your score on the clipboard next to your name on the seating chart. Keep trying until you get a higher score than Speed 7. If you are new to class, you don’t have a Speed7 to beat, so just get the best score you can.
2. Your due date is at 4:00 PM today for the following:
6th Grade: Finish Draft Autobiogrphy Glogster. I can see your posters by logging in so you do not have to send me anything to show you have done the work.
7th Grade: Finish gathering your 10 items for your Ancient History Timeline. Have some variety—don’t use all text, all pictures, all maps, etc. Every item needs a date.
8th Grade: Your draft THIS I BELIEVE essay should be completed in class today. You must write 250-500 words. Watch your conventions—if you make too many errors I will know you didn’t take the time and effort to proofread and edit—so I won’t be able to give you a grade. Keep in mind that we will be turning your essay into an Animoto movie.
Use your time wisely! If you finish early you may do any school-appopriate LEARNING activity, including homework and silent reading. YOUR SUBSTITUTE DECIDES WHAT IS APPROPRIATE but you know the right thing to do after 76 days in my class. ; )
Have a great weekend, students!
