Upcoming Major Grades
As we quickly approach the end of the 3rd 9wk grading period, there are a few important dates to know. These dates have been on my board since returning from Christmas Break, but I understand we are all bombarded with deadlines right now and would like to send a little reminder.
Industrial Revolution Project - DUE Monday, 2/26
Students have received 2 days in class (Wednesday 2/21 + Thursday 2/22) to work on their invention blue print and questions. Most students finished in class as it is a simple assignment, but the deadline is Monday at the beginning of class for students who need a little extra time over the weekend.
Social Studies Mock STAAR test - TO BE TAKEN Wednesday, 2/28
Students will be taking a mock STAAR test (a practice version of the standardized test administered by the state in May). It is 48 questions covering material from throughout this school year and students will receive a 4 hour block of time to take the exam. The review game was released to google classroom today (2/22) and will remain there until the test date. The game works on computers and smartphones -- great to play on the bus! Students will also be given a review sheet to complete that matches the game either Friday or Monday (just waiting for the copies to be made).
