  2. g = 7
  3.  t = 8
  4.  r = 7
  5.  r = 10
  6.  f = 5
  7.  t = 2.2
  8.  y = 2.9
  9.  a = 4.3
  10.  b = 1/2 (one – half when reduced from two-fourths)
  11.  w = 1/14 (one-fourteenth)

Good afternoon Global Citizens and Math Brains,

Here are the highlights from today:

Social Studies: Today in class we started drafting the DBQ response about how the Treaty of Versailles led to WWII.  We will continue writing in class tomorrow.  The only homework tonight is to return your permission slips for the guest speaker on Monday.  The deadline for permission slips is TOMORROW. 

Math: Today in class we took the Unit 3 Touchstone.  Tomorrow we will go over them, look at the correct answers, and start a review for the Unit 3 test that is at the “just right” level for you.  There is no homework tonight, but you did receive a study guide that is due 11-12-19, the same day as the test.

Remember to bring in your canned/nonperishable food items for the THANKS FOR GIVING food drive.  Your support of local families in need is greatly appreciated.

Tomorrow is the color battle! Wear shoes you are not too attached to if you are participating.  They will be colorful when you are done.

See you tomorrow, kiddos! Hopefully the room is a little less under construction. 🙂

Hello Ghosts and Ghouls,

I had so much fun learning with you today!  There is no homework for any of the classes tonight, but I do want to make sure you are ready to roll tomorrow.

Social Studies:  Make sure you have Warm Up #11 and some colored pens or highlighters.  We are going to continue to work with the documents about the Treaty of Versailles, and I want to make sure you are able to make the best use of your time.

Math: Make sure you have your MSG and a colored pen, pencil, or highlighter.  Bring your dry erase marker too, if we have time we will practice on the desks and white boards.

Homeroom: We kicked off the THANKS FOR GIVING food drive today like champs!  Thank you for your thoughtfulness and generosity.  We are collecting non-perishable food items from now until November 15th, so please keep sending in what you can.  Your donations go directly to support local families, so this is a great way to support our wonderful community.

4th Block: Remember to get those COLOR BATTLE donations in!  The funds raised go directly to our school for technology and building advancements.  Thank you if you have already donated!  

See you tomorrow, kiddos.  Remember that Butterfinger candy bars are extremely “toxic” to young children.  You can bring them to me for safe “disposal.” 🙂
