Careers in Tech

Another productive day here in room 19. We had a good discussion, as we usually do, about our homework assignments as we carefully corrected them. We then read most of another chapter of Horn Spoon! We went to Tech Center where Ms. Richard is having them start to research careers in technology. They will be working in teams to develop a PowerPoint slide show on a career, and they will then be porting this to the school's website through the iWeb program.

After recess, they went to Mr. Pratt's class for History. In the afternoon, we talked about problem solving in math and we did our usual skill rotations in physical education. We also switched seats (which can be a form of problem solving....)

Homework:  (1) Write the spelling words 10 times each. The words are solution, variable, integer, diagram, and Sierra Nevada. (2) Do By the Great Horn Spoon! study sheet for chapter  15. (3) Do "Problem Solving" pages 342-343 and "Test Prep" on pages 344-345  in the math book. Also do "Buried Treasure" on the back.
