Welcome to Olympic Week!

OPening ceremonies are always a moving experience and I hope that you all appreciated the meaning behind them!

All classes turned in Economics warm-up #1 yesterday and received Economics Warm-Up #2 (due Monday).  The CNN News in 10 episode we watched yesterday was from May 8.

We have begin our wrap up of the year by re-visiting Weslandia, the story we read the first week of school about the pieces of Social Studies found within a location.  Students are creating their own culture this week.  It is due on Friday but we are working on it in class.

A dose of real life….

All classes played the Game of Life today.  After selecting a career card, students set a budget based on the “Life Catalog” choices.  It was eye opening for many.  Heads up parents-many think they will be living with you until they are 40!

Homework:  Credit Card handout-due Monday

Almost Friday!

Today we continued our discussion of government.  After checking our answers for the review for the quiz on Wednesday-students selected their country’s candidate for leader and either wrote the speech or used “twitter” to share concerns with their current leader.  Homework:  Read page 2 “MIXED ECONOMY” in your teacher notes.  This will make tomorrow go more efficiently and less over the weekend “to finish up” work.

Have a great night!
