If you haven't done so already please complete the survey from yesterday - or better still wait until I am at school and just tell me as I accidentally created the survey with an account I can't access at school (password issues... typical me!!!)
For the people who have been studying about Japan, Katsu will be coming in just after 10 to talk with you. I have checked with Mrs B and it's fine.
Please print off what you have done for CBL and hand it in today :) Even photocopied notes from your book are better than nothing and give me a really good idea of your ability to ask investigative questions and find answers.
After Interval start with SSR (silent reading) and make sure your jackets are off and bags are outside ;)
See you in a while,
On Thursday it's my last day, and to celebrate the time we've had together, we're going to have a pizza party, at lunchtime. We will order the pizzas on Wednesday, so please fill out and submit the following survey asap. Please note that we are not going to muck around with thick/thin crusts or special toppings. It's just the $5 range and from the list below. You can choose between Pizza Hut or Dominos though ;) You can bring the $ on Wednesday or Thursday. If you'd prefer something other than pizza, that's ok! Just comment in the survey :) We can celebrate whether or not everyone has pizza!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY GABBY!
Science: Continue with DNA; when finished, go on with Education Perfect (Science).
Maths: Continue with whatever Mrs B has assigned for you to do. Remember - she watches in real time what you do on Education Perfect! Make sure you stay on task - she knows if you're not!
CBL Writing. If you have finished that (the legend retelling and report), just write about anything you like.
CBL: Some of you have or are almost finished with this project. If you have shared it with me, or handed it in, and I have acknowledged it and marked it on a piece of paper that you have done this then you may continue with Options.
ALL EATING OUTSIDE TODAY! IT"S A BLUXTIFUL DAX - ENJOY IT!
It's Wednesday My Class!!!!
Mrs B is away still, so we'll just carry on with the DNA research for science, then EP for Maths.
Devotions: Yes, I want you to write the whole verse, because it is all important! I will collect your books in today, please put them up at the green shelf.
Devotions today: Please copy both of the verses, you'll see why as you read the 'reflect'. I am really impressed with most of your 'Reflect' summaries, and the responses that some of you have done. Well done.
Today we have the Eco visit, so before it and after lunch we will be watching a two-hour documentary about mitochondria and it's relationship to the cell. I have a test ready for you on this, so please watch carefully.
PS Nah, just joking! We will work on CBL/English, and for those of you who aren't sure what to continue with, I have put 2 tasks into the CBL tab. :D
Today I want to go over CBL things - I think some of you feel pressured and confused about it - I am keen to get it sorted. I have an idea as to how we can go about it if you are having trouble. Some of you are sorted, so don't worry about this - I am not giving you more work! IN order for me to be able to do this we will watch the rest of the Evolution Documentary.
I am so glad to be here all day today! You guys rock!
Copy the following:
2. 1 Corinthians 2:13
3. James 3:17
After Interval the FIRST thing you need to do is create your schedule for CBL/English. By this I mean the SPECIFIC tasks you intend to complete today.
A few 'Issues' (#grumpyface)
1. SPOTIFY/YOUTUBE You know that I am happy for you to listen to music BUT your playlist needs to be chosen before school, at the start of Interval and the start of lunchtime. NOT DURING CLASS. School time is for SCHOOLWORK!
2. INSTAGRAM: DELETE IT NOW if you still have it on your laptop.
3. GENERAL USE OF LAPTOPS: The laptop you have is SCHOOL PROPERTY! It is for you to use to complete your SCHOOLWORK, not to browse shops or watch sports videos, especially not during schooltime!
It's Wednesday Team!
Devotions: Copy Acts 1:8 (just a short one today! Sorry about yesterday, I had forgotten to 'schedule' the post I wrote so it was still sitting in the drafts folder - I had shortened the amount that you were to copy... oops!)
Reflect: there are 3 paragraphs, so 1 sentence for each please.
Jonty, please can you bring the books back when you come back for Maths. I will be marking them today. Thanks. If you didn't finish, or your book is untidy, expect to be working during your breaks to fix/finish it!
I know that some of you are freaking out about the amount of work I have given you; if you are feeling overwhelmed because of your commitments to Production, please see me and we can sort out a solution for you!
Today we will look at time blocking and how to use your time effectively. Be ready! You may need to have a pencil and eraser handy, and I like to use coloured pencils/highlighters etc (because I'm a stationery geek lol) so I have a visual reference to what I'm doing and when.
See you soon!
PS Happy Birthday Kyle!
