Week of April 16th, 2007

16 04 2007

Our first full week back to the grindstone.

Social Studies – students will be delving more deeply into the American Revolution and it’s causes. 

Math – Students have created most of their notecards for the steps to all of the operations with fractions.  I am hoping to get them started in making a video that we can post online that will detail and give examples of solving fraction operations (plus, minus, multiply, divide).  However, we have to get through subtraction of fractions first.  If we do get around to making a video, that’ll be posted at http://wjhs.wordpress.com

Social Skills – we took in $36 over the past 2 weeks with the Washington Students Dog Treat Business.  Students came up with the idea of making a video to further promote the sale.  We have also been doing some role plays with “one-liners,” trying to break the ice and get peers to buy the treats.  Some of the great lines they came up with are: “Are you sick of recalled dog food?”  “Don’t you think puppies are cute?”  “What would you say if I told you that you could buy a bag of dog treats today that are both healthy and reasonably-priced?”  We had some fun coming up with those…  Students will be traveling to St. Mary’s Monday and Wednesday to continue production of the treats.

Special Events this week –
