If you’re absent this week, you’ll need to make up your missing word cards (which you can download using this link) and journal responses (which are listed below). If you fill out a word card sheet and/or journal completely, please turn it in and get another from the reading boxes in the make-up work center at the back of the classroom.
In addition to that, students earn a sticker for their sticker sheets by reading. But if you’ve been absent, you simply read a library book at home for 30 minutes and have your parent sign your agenda saying that you did so. Then show this to Mrs. Webmaster, and she’ll give you the sticker you missed on the day you were gone. (For athletes, your coach can sign your agenda stating that you read on the bus that day.)
Monday, Feb. 11:
- Word card = stockade
- Journal = none
- We went to the library today to renew our Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys, or Agatha Chrisitie novels. Please ask for a hall pass to go to the library if you still haven’t checked one out. You MUST have one for the book report that’s due on Friday, February 15. Reading your mystery book is your primary homework for this class.
Tuesday, Feb. 12: We had a guest teacher today, who allowed us time in class to color and label our schooner diagrams. Please ask Mrs. Webmaster if you can take your schooner home to finish it.
Wednesday, Feb. 13:
- Word card = anchorage
- Journal = There was no journal question today, as we ran out of time due to late-start Wednesday.
Thursday, Feb. 14:
- Word card = coracle
- Journal = How was battle in the 1700s different from battles today?
Friday, Feb. 15:
- We turned in our mystery book report forms today. Please turn yours in immediately! Remember, put all make-up work directly into Mrs. Webmaster’s hand.
- It was Fun Friday today.
