Please pardon the delay with the updating of the blog. For some reason, accessing WordPress.com from school was no longer possible, but I have finally found a solution. With less than a month to go until the CRCT, I certainly want to keep you all updated on what is going on in class.
This week we are trudging through the second Benchmark exam, which is a county-created and mandated exam. The students have up to 3 days to complete this within ELA and those who finish early will participate in “Zapping Zeroes.” Those who have any zeroes within their overall grade will be given the opportunity to re-do and complete this work for partial credit as the quarter ends this Friday, the 15th. Furthermore, on Thursday and Friday the students are going to have time to work on the areas in which they each need extra practice in the form of a Web Quest.
I will include links to some of the more important PowerPoint presentations from the past couple of weeks below. Please feel free to use these for review.
