CONFERENCE WEEK We look forward to seeing some of you during this week. If you would like us to be at your conference, please let us know.
Because of conferences, our Target day was shortened.
Students worked on Hands-On-Equations by completing a review of lessons 8 - 11. Monday's students read the background Essay on the Medieval World. All students completed and discussed the questions pertaining to the unit.
Students presented their Medieval Dictionaries,showing off their covers and title pages. We have some very creative students. Students were given a list of 30 words and wrote each word lightly on the top of a different page. This will help them keep their books in alphabetical order.
Our logic puzzle was Knights of the Round Table>
Tuesday and Wednesday's students worked on a word plexer and a word puzzle called Trading Vowels. Some students worked on a Medieval map activity.
HOMEWORK: Students will complete the first two words for their dictionary, fief and castle.To check word origins, please refer to the following site: http://www.etymonline.com
