Normally we do a word card, read a few chapters from Treasure Island, and then do a journal entry, but today’s schedule will be very different. Students are taking the Treasure Island final exam on Monday and Tuesday this week. (It takes two full class periods–about 90 minutes– as it’s an open-book, open-note essay test.) Since Friday, January 20, 2012 is the last day of the quarter, I’m asking that all students finish taking the make-up final by this Friday, January 13, 2012. That allows me time to get it graded before report cards come out. So students, if you’ve been absent, please set an official appointment to come in at lunch or after school before this Friday to finish your final. Every student will be allowed 90 minutes to finish the test.
I will not be available on Wednesday night after school, because that’s when my daughter has piano lessons. Sorry for the inconvenience. But I can stay after school until 4:30 nearly any other night, if the student takes the initiative to make an official appointment.
There was no word card today and no journal question.
