Thank you!

 Dear Parents,
Thank you for being so patience about my surgery. Everything went very well this time and hopefully this adventure will be complete next October!


 I apologize for not posting all of the information while I was out. I have graded all of the papers from before the break and updated the grades. I am now starting with papers turned in since last Monday. I will have those graded soon. My goal is to grade the test from before break and then the homework. I seem to have lots of late work turned in this past week. Please remind students to put their name on the paper, because my nameless wall has run out of room! It would be great to have assignments on late papers also, then I don't have to guess what they are for a grade.


1/4-5_ India voc p 106 questions p 111, 1ab,2ab,3ab
1/6-7 Mohenjo-Daro  Read p 112-113 and do assessment. Draw a picture from your mind's eye on what you think the city looks like.
1/8-11- Hinduism Read p 114-118, voc p 114 questions p 118
1/12-13- Buddhism. Read p 119-123 voc p 119 questions p 123.


Please remind students to be respectful when learning about another person; religion and culture.
* the next test will be before the nine weeks end.
******** Students will need a new composition book for next semester.*****************

Update in work and grades

 I have not posted the finally grades for my class yet. I will take the last late papers on Wednesday and I will update then.
 I will not post the Mesopotamia Test until Quarter 2. The students didn't do well on this test. I would prefer to use it for next nine weeks so they may raise their grade vs this test pulling them down. The students always do well on the first test and then relax for the second. This is what I saw on the second test. The students also have trouble with the second nine weeks because of relaxing from the first quarter and many holidays. Time passes without them realizing how fast it is going. The students are having trouble with their vocabulary. I asked them to use their flash cards they created and practice. This will help them at the end of the year exam.

We are now in Egypt:

The "No Name "wall

 Dear Parents,

My "No Name" on your paper wall is running out of room. I don't have nay more space to place a new paper. I encourage the Students to check the wall if they don't get a paper back.
In defense of the wall; I will every Student a progress report from my class on Friday(10/9) or Monday(10/12). I have every project and paper graded at the moment in time. Some of these papers are super and I would enjoy posting them to the lost person's grade. I am sure it would help them.


 Thank you for you help in this matter!! : )
