PowerSchool, Classroom Check

This week, for day on days 1 and 2 (Tuesday and Wednesday), in addition to working on our personal work, we’ll check our Powerschool and Google Classroom to get a big picture of how things are going. 

Please write your missing work on a post-it and be ready to confer with me about what you are doing well, and what you plan to work on in the next week!

Over the next few days, we’ll be doing a number of things. On days 7 and 8 (Thursday and Monday), we’ll be doing some math probe to see how we’re doing with our warm ups.

On Friday (day1-8) we’ll all be thinking about the things we do to get our homework done. Most people who get their homework done have a system and a routine.

A System is for remembering and recording yourhomework. This could include:

  • a paper agenda or planner
  • Google Classroom
  • Google Calendar
  • a pic of the white board
  • Notes, Reminders or other apps

A Routine.for doing your homework at a time and in a place that works for you. For example:

  • after snack at the at the kitchen table
  • during Homework Club
  • after dinner at the desk in your room

Special ET: Peaceful Poetry

Today during our special ET session, you’ll have a choice of reading poetry or writing it. I’ll explain the details in person.

If you want to read poetry, get a partner, follow this link, and choose one of the groups of poetry to read/watch/listen to. You can respond to it how you like–you might want to draw a picture, or you might just want to choose things you liked–or didn’t like–to discuss with your partner.

If you want to write small peace poems, you can follow this link and find an image or idea that inspires you to write a small poem.
