We have been working on collecting research for their solar system travel brochure. However, most students did not use their time wisely on Friday. So, today we discussed TIME MANAGEMENT. We looked at the upcoming requirements for the class and I encouraged all students to record the information in their agenda. We also discussed the importance of making sure they have all the necessary information for completing all assignments (ie. Did they loose a copy of the vocabulary and, if they did, where would they find the words). I am trying to foster self-sufficiency and resourcefulness in the students. It is a skill they they will need for the rest of their lives. Please ask your student about their agenda. See if they can tell you what they have due and when.
Research: All solar system research should be complete by tomorrow at the beginning of class so they can begin their assignment.
Project: Project class time will be tomorrow and Wednesday. If it is not complete, it will need to be completed at home and is DUE FRIDAY!
Vocabulary: ALL vocabulary will be due September 5th. I am postponing the date because the Unit test has been pushed back. I would like students to have IAN to study. Remember, the fist set of vocabulary is definition only. They second set is definition AND a picture.
Astronomy Unit Test: The test will be next week on Wednesday or Thursday depending on how students progress the rest of the week. Anticipate a study guide to come home this Thursday.
