It’s June already! Despite what we’ve gone through with the pandemic, the year feels like it flew by. It seems like just a few weeks ago that we were training for the Mini Marathon, planting trees in Jo County, and starting to build our bird house. And before you know it, you’ll be walking into middle school!
This week we have some significant things going on. One of the most important is your Letters to Yourself at Graduation. We’ll start those TOMORROW. The other one is the signing of the DARE banner. I will be at school on Thursday from 3:00 to 6:00 for you to stop by the school to sign the banner, get your DARE shirt, and address your graduation letter envelope. I’d also like you to bring in your math text book, your library books, and anything else you need to turn in.
As for today, you have a math lesson on long division. Watch my video and then do worksheet A for classwork and worksheet B for homework. You also have a short history lesson on The Great Depression, the usual reading and PE log, and an article from Storyworks called “Saving the Wolves.” There’s also a special read aloud in Classwork (Outdoor Dude will continue later in the week). We have a 9 a.m. clicker question interactive session in Classroom and a 1 pm Zoom meeting where I’ll explain how to write your graduation letter.
