First, the Argumentative Essay is DUE TOMORROW! We will be strictly following the WMS grading policy this quarter to get students prepared for 7th grade, which means this CANNOT BE TURNED IN LATE! If it is not turned in the day that it is due for your child (including days of absence, if necessary), it will be a zero. This is a formative assignment.
Our Q3 Benchmark will be on Thursday of this week. I have given students a studyguide to review the past few units that will be covered on the Benchmark. Instead of giving them the unit test the following day, I have decided to take the studyguide as the MAJOR grade for this unit. It will be due on Thursday, and they have two entire class periods to work on it. We will also go over the more difficult questions on Wednesday as a class. Many students got through almost the entire studyguide in just one class period, as it is a review and all answers can be found within the notes, old classwork/quizzes, or bell ringers.
The attached file is the Study Guide if you would like to look it over or if your child needs another copy!
Extra help is available every Tuesday from 3:30-4:30. Please remember that you MUST fill out a permission form (below) and turn it in the day before in order to attend.
For some of our projects this year, I will be asking for parent volunteers. If you already know that you would like to volunteer in the future, please contact me. Otherwise, the need for parent volunteers will be included in the weekly update. Thank you! :)
