As we end the week, the schedule on this day was a bit different but the amount of instructional time was still the same for all. This was due to visitors in the building and my homeroom stayed with me for the first period, had lunch with Mr. Thompson, and had third period with Ms. Fletcher. They still went to specials with me (music) and were still dismissed with me at the end of the day.
The big focus for today was the literacy common assessment. I did allow class time in here for students who needed to finish since this is something that is very important. Those who finished were given the opportunity to work on the social studies project.
I was planning on doing a science quiz but with all that has been going on I decided to move it to Tuesday. This will allow us some more time to prepare and will work better with the schedule. The quiz will have 12 multiple choice questions and will cover only the first part of the energy unit.
The weekly parent email went out today. The class party is in a week and then after that.....we are on break!
Lastly, I was saddened to learn today that the magazine My School Rocks! will cease publication after this month's issue. As far as I know, I will get to be "Dr. STEM" one last time so it is nice to be a part of that. Now I am going to have to look for a new publisher. The quest begins!
