and the worse thing to find out on a Friday? That it is only Tuesday!

We are slowly getting back into school mode….getting there!

Latin America map test on Friday!  Enjoy the song!  It really does help…play it for your parents/siblings…it really does annoy people!  LOL

Today we read and annotated the Teacher Notes about the political and physical features.  One color-vocab and the other purpose-Predict how these features might impact the people of the region.

REMINDER:  We use 2 different color highlighters (almost) daily.  To be successful and prepared you need the right equipment.  If you don’t have them-get them!

Thursday already!

Sorry about missing a post yesterday…was in the dentist chair!

All blocks are working on learning more about Australia!  We have looked at the physical and political features of the country…or is it a continent?  Oh yes, both!

Today we began a study of the Aboriginal culture/history that was forever changed by the arrival in the late 1700″s.

We also watched the Feb 7 episode of CNN in 10.  Warm-Up #14 is due tomorrow.

MAP TEST ON FRIDAY!  Get well…stay well!
