Social Studies Homework:
The Fourth Marking Period began on Monday, March 30, 2015! If you didn't do well last quarter, now is the time to begin working seriously. If you did well, you do not have any time to be laid back and become complacent; there's still a lot of work to be done. At any rate, good luck as we continue on this 6th grade journey, which will sometimes feel like a roller coaster ride, but at the end, it would have been worth it all. Buckle you seat belts, it's time for take off!!!
MyOn must be visited at least 5 hours per week and you MUST read books from the recommended book list! At the end of each book, you'll be given about 5 questions to answer, before you are allowed to move on to another book; your progress will be checked and you'll be given a grade for each 'test', which will be part of your overall ELA grade each Marking Period/Quarter, so please be serious as you actually focus and read, and watch as your comprehension soars. Enjoy the adventures and knowledge that await you!!
