Today there was no internet at school. It is amazing how dependent we have become on the internet. We could not access our writing projects so we got out the paper. This led to some interesting writing conferences, followed by some productive writing time. Tomorrow we will learn a writing tip called, "show me don't tell me," and students will use this tip to revise the pieces they wrote today.
We also had a math mid term assessment that will be posted in student digital portfolios. The assessment will inform students and parents of what students know and need to work on for the unit test. Please make sure you show this assessment to your parents on Fresh Grade.
After lunch we got into our science groups and had some good discussion around the questions in the science lab. We closed out the day making and playing a classroom French game.
The lack of internet pushed us to work more closely with our classmates, to communicate and collaborate face to face. Great Job today all!
