Mrs. Stewart Notes

Welcome To Our Page


Notebooks will be handed in on these days and Ch. 3 will be marked.  Our review questions will be used as the Quiz itself for this chapter.  Students will have two science classes to work on the questions.  They can use their peers, textbooks, notebooks or even the computers.  If any questions are unfinished (as well as work/sheets from the notebooks) student enhancement and work at home will be necessary.

Students in 8B should have already done this and 8A will be getting their tests back tomorrow (Jan. 14th).
Students should be reviewing and working on review questions for their upcoming Science quiz.  Notebooks will also be handed in before the quiz.  They'll be marked out of eight.
8A and 8B have the "Jack and the Giant Peach" reading comprehension due on Monday.  They will only have to bring it home if they don't finish it in student enhancement time this week.

Students have been working on either a free choice writing piece, "If I had Three Wishes" writing piece or one from a list of prompts.  A rough and good copy are due this Friday.  We have done mini-lessons to help us with editing for the six traits of writing.  It is kept in their portfolios but you may see it this week if students don't finish in class time or student enhancement time.

Students of 8A and 8B will have a couple of extra days to work on their UDL projects.  Monday, Nov. 18th is the new due date.  Ample class time has been given so students should not have much (if any) work to do at home.  I have provided most supplies for models but students will have to bake/cook some of their projects at home (if they've chosen that option).  Just a reminder that Harkins is a nut free school.  I think the students have enjoyed this project!  I can't wait to see all of the finished products on Monday.

These Journals are all completed at school during Language Arts classes and can also be worked on during student enhancemnet time.  If students would like to bring them home to finish they certainly may but must have them returned by Nov. 12th as our blue portfolios/Journals will be marked at that time.  Any parent or guardian who wishes to take a look at what we have been working on in our writer's workshop(portfolio time) may do so at any time or can come in to parent teacher as well.
See attached the review for our chapter one quiz as well as the requirements for our notebooks for term one.
