8th Grade: We’re wrapping-up the grading period with presentations of what we have been programming. There will not be a benchmark exam. If you are out because of illness this week and miss the video game exchange and Alice presentations you will need to see me immediately upon your return to school to show me your work.
6th Grade: We will not have a benchmark exam. We have been working on the Hour of Code activities I have on my blog. Students are required to complete the 20 Angry Birds puzzles for a grade. If at home sick, they may do this at home and print the completion certificate to show me upon their return to school. We also printed our thank you notes we created using Publisher. Other than these two assignments no additional grades will be taken this week – except for participation.
I have enjoyed working with you this grading period. I hope you all have a safe, well (no illness), and blessed holiday season and Christmas. ~ Mrs. Graham
