Spelling and Vocabulary Bonus Points!

For each extra credit turned in students will receive 2 bonus points on their test.

Today each student got a worksheet with a crossword and a word search. If it is turned in by 8AM tomorrow I will give them 3 bonus points on spelling and 3 bonus points on vocabulary. If it is turned in after 8 AM they can still receive 2 points for each. I told them that they may use their spelling/vocab list to help them.

Here are areas of the study guide to focus on:

Technology in class tomorrow!

We will be reviewing for a test tomorrow in class with KAHOOT. Students may bring a technology device to use if they would like. I will also have ipads available for students who do not have their own. Please remind them that they may not have them out in the halls or any other class and they must be turned off when we are not using them in my classroom.

Students will get plenty of candy and treats from each other with their Valentines.┬áParents may join their student’s homeroom for their party if they would like. We will be having regular classes until 2:30. If you plan to check your child out early please let the office know when you check in.
