It’s Friday…

…you’ve worked hard-take a week off!

No homework except to rest and be safe.  DO something kind for someone this break!  Check your grades-we are 10 days away from the end of the quarter!  Grades will continue to be entered until the end so don’t give up the fight!

The Durham Library challenges you to read at least 20 minutes each day of fall break for a total of 180 minutes. Log your minutes in Biblionasium.

If you need something good to read, swing by the library before week’s end. Over the break, be sure to visit our local public libraries and use your Library Pass to checkout print resources. From the  Cobb County Public Library website you can also download ebooks and audiobooks. And new this year is the Sora app! Where you can get digital content from the Durham Library and the Cobb County Public Library with just a few clicks. Durham Library’s online catalog Destiny is also available 24/7 and provides access to ebooks and audiobooks as well. It doesn’t stop there, Cobb Digital Library’s databases host eBooks on EBSCOhost, Teen Book Cloud, and TumblePremium. There’s no excuse to not read!

Not interested int hat?  How about I trade you your study guide (does not have to be completed) for a piece of candy!?!?!  I want to add it to the information we share at Parent Night on Oct. 1.

Happy Thursday my friends…..

Blocks 1 and 5:  Today was our last visit to the Media Center for the research phase of the Fiddle Faddle Factory.  Teams have selected the location to propose and we will work on final presentations in class on Friday ad on Monday.

Blocks 2, 3, and 4:  Hola!  We practiced our test taking strategy today and found that many of you are thinking like a teacher!  The language map was completed in class (or homework to finish).  YOU DO NOT NEED TO DO THE QUESTIONS ON THE AT HOME!  

Warm-Up #6 is due tomorrow after CNN News in 10.

Our first unit test will be 09.19!  Start studying with the warm-ups 3, 4, and 6.  How?  Make corrections is the first place to start!

Blocks 1 and 5:  See the Fiddle Faddle post made earlier.

If you did not turn in the paragraph about your expert country…it is due tomorrow.  Choose a sentence from each topic for the body of your paragraph and don’t forget a topic or concluding sentence.

Blocks 2, 3, and 4:  Bonjour mes amis!  Today classes heard from our friend Moana-at times she was hard to understand but we are working on languages in Europe right now so maybe that will help!  Students were given a handout to annotate (STRATEGY:  Create a “test” question and highlight the answer as our purpose).  This is homework!

TEST IS IN YOUR NEAR FUTURE…looking like September 19th.  Stay tuned!

FIddle Faddle Factory Research

Look for the Cobb Digital Library link on your desktop.  There are several data bases that will be helpful but I suggest beginning with Culture Grams and Britannica.  DO NOT limit yourself to just these though.  Ask Mrs. Baker for suggestions if you need help finding something specific.
