THIS WEEK: Monday, March 24 - Sunday, March 30, 2014

NOTES:  Don't forget to return your Fieldhouse permission and $.

Our class READ challenge AND our school READ challenge have started, so 'get reading.' :-) Don't forget to log your minutes into Biblionasium.
Wednesday, March 26th: Our Demonstration of Learning will take place from 4:00 - 7:00 p.m. Hope you can make it. Plan to stay for at least a half hour, as your son or daughter will have lots to 'demonstrate.’ You will get a really good idea as to how they are doing :-). 
 Friday, March 27th: There will be no formal classes today, as other classrooms will be having their demonstration of learning or formal conferences this day. 

THIS WEEK'S ASSIGNMENTS:  This will be a two-week assignment. I WILL NOT be giving you any class time this week, but there will be some class time next week. I expect you to start the assignments at home this week, and work on them, so they are at least half done by next Monday. I will be watching closely online to see who is signing in and showing themselves as responsible and organized students in Term 3. DO NOT LEAVE THEM TO THE LAST MINUTE.
TYPING WEB: Advanced Course -> Lesson 1 -> Key Quadrants

Conceptua Math: Big Idea 5 -> Learning Equivalent Fractions. Complete the second folder (Ordering and Comparing Equivalent Fractions). There are 4 lessons in this folder (5.2.1, 5.2.2, 5.2.3 and 5.2.4).
REMEMBER: when you are logging in, the 'customer name' is my email - jporritt@accesscomm.ca
