The point sheet/behavior card is the vehicle that I have chosen to communicate class behavior. Although most students get all the points every day, please check it and initial it along with their agenda and the reading log at the bottom of the agenda page. If you are not seeing a point sheet every day, please ask your student where it is. Your help in keeping up with their school behavior is greatly appreciated.
This week in curriculum:
Reading; we are comparing two or more sources with the same subject matter and identifying the important facts.

Please review the requirements of the project with your student, sign and return the form to me by Wednesday. Your attentiveness to this project is greatly appreciated. If your student needs a new form, just e-mail me.
