I enjoyed seeing my students in Class Connect this week! Wow, I have a
bright group this year! In SLASH today, students did an impressive job of reading

AND IT WAS THE FIRST DAY!
We learned a handy "recipe" for making sure our answer is complete and
convincing when talking about something we've read.
Are you ready toR.A.C.E.?

If you'd like to print R.A.C.E. strategy information
week we will practice our text-based responses in one way or another, so by the end of the
year you'll all be experts! This skill will come in handy in all courses
from now, through college... and beyond.
This year we will save all of our Math and SLASH Class Connect notes
and assignments in a spiral notebook. By June, you will have a cool (and
super-fat) spiral notebook with all of the lesson information from the ENTIRE
YEAR in one place! Please remember to bring your math and ELA notebooks to
class each week. Notebook pages will be sent via k-mail, so you can add them to
your notebook before class. You can also find many of them here.
