Here is the in-class reading for today. Use your pre-reading strategies from last week to create questions and take notes as you read.
Hey everyone just wanted to share with students and parents alike that each day of the week we have a focused education theme. My goal is to develop good learning habits that become automatic skills which can be applied to ACT test and the real world.
- Monday = reading
- Tuesday = vocabulary or writing
- Wednesday = Geography
- Thursday = Math skills (graph/chart/timeline skills)
- Friday = Quiz
I wanted to share this information with all so we can encourage our learners to be prepare and focused for the task of the day. Plus if the student is out for a day or two they know they have missed something. I will be posting the daily activities on Google Classroom for the students to see what they missed and/or get a copy of what they missed so they can catch up.
This themed learning activities will be designed to fill the beginning of the class and not always the bulk of the class so students need to be prepare to learn in other manners throughout the class period, for example, taking notes, group and pair assignments, video discussions and questions, etc…
Please feel free to contact me to discuss any questions you may have on weekly habits.

Welcome to my blog. As you see this is a resource for many things like project information, test reviews, and important items (like maps, articles, etc…). I will also be utilizing a Google Classroom this year, which we will be discussing in class this week. Everyone will need to sign up for Google Classroom because it will have daily assignments, syllabus, project information, and other pertinent items related to class work and test/quizzes. I am looking forward to a wonderful year!

Here is the smarter than a 5th grader review
Review Guide/Timeline: Civil War
For the test you will need to know the advantages and disadvantages for the North and South plus know their plans/strategies.
You will need to create a timeline today and turn it in prior to leaving class: the timeline should contain the election of Lincoln, secession of the Southern states, Ft Sumter, all the battles discussed in class (9 battles in total).
The timeline can have as much detail as you would like; my suggestion would be to have the date of battle(s), winners, losers, key events within the battle, important results
Test is 5/5/16 Thursday
