Where learning is always sweet!

G’day, eh!?!?

We will be earning our frequent flyer miles these next few days before AND after Spring Break!  We will be travelling between Canada and Australia.

Today, students received the Australia map and took notes about its political and physical features.  REMEMBER:  the test over BOTH maps will be on April 14th.  Going on a road trip?  Take your maps along.  Staying home?  pull the maps out instead of saying “I’M BORED”….

down to 3!

Show What You Know Eve!

Tomorrow will be our Unit 6 and 7 test.  Hope you have been using your time wisely!

Blocks 3, 4 and 5:  You have had your study guide for almost 2 weeks now….have you been visiting with it?  Have you given it quality time?  If you love your study guide, it will love you!

Blocks 6 and 7:  Review the Unit 6 and 7 standards.  Be able to discuss the topics, not just memorize a short answer.  There are only 4 questions on the test…

As always-there is a treat for the visitors that come to the blog the night before a test.  This week is Ultimate Fun Friday…the treat is on me!  Come to see me during HOMEROOM with a print out of this blog page, a parent signature and an answer to this question…..What does the salt water represent in a Passover Seder?  In exchange for the correct answer you will receive a power cat card to use on Friday!

Have a nice night and sweet dreams about Latin America!
