Welcome back to another great week! As part of my new year, new goal personal theme, I am trying to stick to being more PREPARED! I would like to try and take care of any weekly stuff on the first day of the week so we can set our agenda for the week and we all know where we are going and when! I would greatly appreciate any COMMENTS about times you have things this week. Examples include: Logic, StuCo, groups, appointments, vacations....etc
Ms. Strack would like you to have HEADPHONES when you go to reading today. I will also try and send home new Deep Portage reminders today if I have time during lunch. Let's make today a great one!
Morning work is going to be found in Schoology ---> Math ---> Morning Work ---> January (We are on week 16...skip to that one and begin there!)
Good Morning Super Students! Another busy Friday is upon us. Today is a day 3, Phy Ed. You can either change your gym shoes this morning or when we head down.
We also have Junior Achievement coming around 11:00. Junior Achievment is a program where a volunteer from a local business comes in for about 40 mins once a week for 6 weeks. She will be discussing some business, economic and real world problem solving skills. It's always been a fun and interactive time!
We will also be taking the Round 1 Spelling Bee words on paper today and breaking it down to the top 16...we will then have an oral Round 2 this afternoon to figure out our top 5 spellers that will move on to the school Bee next Wednesday. Remember you can invite your families next week if you make it.
Let's make today awesome!
BTW it may be a good idea to work on your keynote this morning...I will skip problem of the day but the expectation is your're using that time to work on your project!
Good Morning Super Students! Today is a day 2 (art) and I received a coconut...check it out on my table :)
We also have book checkout at 11:30, please put your books on the cart for Amy during WIN time.
Reminder: If you have not turned in your report card envelope please do that along with any Deep Portage forms/money!
Problem of the Day
Write an equation for the following problem. Emily bought 7 coconuts at a rate of $2.50 per coconut. Justin purcahsed 15 coconuts for $3 a piece. However, for every 5 coconuts you buy, you get a $.75 discount.. Writre an equation...do not solve!
Good Morning World Changers, welcome back and Happy New Year to all of you. The break was extremely refreshing and allowed a lot of time for reflection. We get so caught up in moving fast, getting lots done and cramming to much into 24 hours...all of that got me thinking about making some type of resolution, something I have come acustom to doing but want to break the habit and make 2017 even better than 2016 was! I would like you to think about something you could make a change in your life to help you grow as a person in 2017 and be prepared to share that. Chat with your friends this morning to get ideas ;)
Good Morning Super Students! Please bring any items you have for the food shelf down to the table this morning. Also don't forget we have the school store at 10:50 today, you can grab any money you have at or after specialist.
Problem of the Day
What fraction of my gas tank was full this morning when I arrived at school?
Good Morning Super Students! What an great way to start the week, with a +40 degree swing in temperature :) Today is book checkout, place your books on the book cart by the door. This is our last chance as a class to grab books before the holidays. Maybe check out 2-3 good books!
Please check the WAEL and Phy Ed helper blog posts below and set a reminder on your iPads to help you get where you need to go this week.
Student council....I believe you have a meeting today to price all the store items at 8:00. Make sure to check in and out with your WIN teacher, please don't get up and just leave!
FAMILIES: Tomorrow is the last day to bring items for the food shelf. The hallway by the office looks amazing but there is still tons of room for non-perisable items!
I am still missing quite a few Deep Portage Health Forms and Payment Confirmation Forms. Please return those ASAP, as they were due last Friday.
School store will be tomorrow from 10:50 - 11:30. We will have a chance to browse the store and purchase items during that time only. The student council is running everything this year and are only able to do it 1 day rather than 3. All the money raised goes towards the local Toys for Tots to purchase items for the holidays.
Problem of the Day
Valerie made 1 lb. of pizza dough. She cut the whole into 12 pieces and then placed it into packages. She sold one package and had 5/6 of the whole left. She sold another package and had 2/3 of the whole left. How much does the dough in each package weigh? How many packages were made? Explain.
Good Morning World Changers!
Those of you that need to help out with bowling today please check the blog and remember what time you need to go. YOU WILL NEED YOUR IPAD TO SCORE FOR THEM. MAKE SURE ITS CHARGED IF NOT, FIGURE OUT HOW YOU WILL HELP.
We will be doing our store project today during math and in the afternoon.
