AR Deadline is also on the 14th at 3:00. Remember, this makes up 10% of your Reading grade!
We will be going on an incentive trip to the movies on Friday for those students who didn't fail any classes and didn't earn more than 1 dhall.
Friday is our LAST day before Christmas break. We will resume classes on January 3rd.
Good luck on final exams this week and have a wonderful Christmas holiday and a very HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

I hope you all had a good night's sleep last night and did your very best this morning on the benchmark. I know you'll all do extremely well! Here is the vocab review for this week since we probably won't have time to go over it in class with such a short time and still having to bubble in on our answer sheets. Study Study Study! Those of you who have not made a 100 yet on a WOW Quiz this grading period need to remember that 100 will replace your other quiz grades if you get a 100 tomorrow! Good Luck!

I hope you're having a restful weekend, enjoying this wet weather and what seems to be, finally, winter's arrival. I want to make sure you are all aware that we will be taking a Reading Benchmark test this Thursday. So please put plenty of rest and on time to school on the agenda this week.
We have a lot going on in these two weeks. Besides the benchmark, the Red Fern project will be assigned on Monday, AR Deadline is next Wednesday, 12/14, and we have our movie incentive on Friday, 12/16. To earn the incentive, students must pass all classes and have no more than 1 dhall in the grading period. Which brings me to the next thing- WOW vocabulary quiz grades were not up to par this week. Parents, please ask your students every Thursday to get out their flashcards and allow them to go over the review videos I post. This is time to push through to the end, not slow down! I'm looking forward to a very productive two weeks and a nice long vacation. I wish the same for all of you!

There will be a pop quiz on Author's Purpose coming up very soon- students will need to be able to read a written item and decide if the purpose is to Inform, Persuade, Express, or Entertain. If you have any questions, please e-mail me.

I'm looking forward to seeing all of you bright and early tomorrow morning!

I hope you all have a fantastic Thanksgiving holiday with your family and friends. We'll see you back here on Monday, 11/28! For those of you attending my reading group, don't forget to stay after school! We'll be starting at 3:00. Eat lots of turkey and maybe even do some reading.
See you next week,

I know Thanksgiving is not this week, but I won't have the opportunity to play a Thanksgiving review with my students next week as we will only be in school on Monday and Tuesday. I decided on the best of both worlds by having a Thanksgiving review this week and then enjoying friends and family with our three days off next week! These are the vocabulary words you will see on this Friday's Word of the Week Quiz. Use this in ADDITION to your Flippin' Flashcards- NOT A SUBSTITUTE!!!
I hope you all have a terrific Thanksgiving with your friends, family, and TURKEY!

Please excuse the beginning of the announcements at the end of the video!
Here is the vocab review for this week's Word of the Day Quiz! There are only 4 words on this quiz so make sure you know these backwards and forwards. Study your Flippin' Flashcards as well! Missing only one question will result in a failing grade!

It's an all new grading period. AR goals are back to normal- the AR deadline is December 14th! We are chugging right along in Where the Red Fern Grows, and should finish in about 3 weeks. There will be a project that I will assign before the completion of the novel. It will be worth 200 quiz points so make sure you do a good job on it!
For Word of the Day this week, teh words are: cease, solemn, eliminate, and falter.
This is an important quiz as there will only be 4 words so make sure you're studying your Flippin' Flashcards!
I'll be posting a review video Thursday night so stay tuned.
Make it a great week,

For the new grading period, AR goals will go back to the normal amount as they were reduced for this shortened grading period. Please check your child's Home Connect to stay up to date with quizzes and goal percentages. We will be starting from scratch on Word of the Day words next week. Keep an eye out on Thursday night for Flippin' Flashcards that should be coming home and check back here periodically for other information and news.
The Bobcats are currently in the lead selling Acapulco tickets. We took the spirit stick from the Jaguar team this morning in a pep rally. Way to go, Bobcats!
Have a great weekend,
