    Week of April 14th

    Hi Everyone, I hope this week is a great week for you all.  We will be studying The Cold War, Korea and Vietnam.  Fast facts quiz on Friday. For my benefit, I want to clarify with you all something I was hoping I would not have to address; however, I feel I need to do this.  I am sure some of you know why and some may be wondering why Josie Kate has taught the class a few times for me this semester.  So, here we go….On January 28th, I started working at Mitchell, McNutt and Sams in accounting.  You must know when I talked to MMS about the postiion…

    Apparently, my brain is already on summer vacation! I’m sorry that I’m posting your assignments so late!  Study Chapter 27, but your only written assignment for this chapter is the vocabulary and the test.

You all are doing great; finish well!

I need to check with the end-of-the-year program coordinator to see if there will be room to display all of them. I know there were some of our families who couldn’t make it to the science fair. So this would give them an opportunity to see the displays. If space is an issue for the end-of-the-year program, we may display the top three from each age category. We will simplify matters and ONLY bring the boards. There are too many delicate,…

    Science Fair – THIS FRIDAY!   For this week: 1. Finish the board if that hasn’t been completed. 2. Prepare and practice your presentation for the judges. In class Friday, we discussed some guidelines for the presentation. It would be helpful to review this sheet in their folder. I tried to stress a few things . . . This is a short presentation. Do not retell everything you did. Just the highlights. Do not introduce yourself (you’ll be given a number). As you are speaking, refer to and point to your board and display. Notecards are allowed, if you need them. Plan for a 1 1/2 minute presentation, then about…

    Shurley English 6 for March 29th

    This week, complete Chapter 25, Lessons 1-4. The thank-you note in Lesson 1 is extra credit, but it must actually be mailed.  If you chose to do this, please have your parents either text, email, or send me a note to class that you did this.  It is worth 5 extra credit points. For composition, complete Lesson 7, “The Bear and the Two Travelers.”  Include at least two of the FODs from this lesson. Be prepared to turn in your final draft in class Friday.
