Today, we started our new book, Looking for Pythagoras. Since it is the start of a new book, it is a good time to reflect on what worked in our last book and what did not. Make a commitment to yourself on how you want to improve as we go forward.
We completed investigation 1.1 today. We used a map of a coordinate plane to find the locations.
Homework: page 14 (1-7) https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B9_EAUW_J80vU0JCaXdRb09aYnVqNloxcjhfT2dNZjdqQXAw/view?usp=sharing

Classwork: Students practiced reading and interpreting distance-time graphs as well as speed-time graphs. We will review this tomorrow when I return. This does not have to be completely finished, but there should be evidence of class work accomplished.
Homework: Quiz corrections due Friday. They must be completed on the required form and turned in along with the original quiz.
Today students responded to an on-demand writing prompt on what they think the author of The Giver is trying to teach us about our society. They used evidence from the story to support their ideas.
Now that we are finished with The Giver, sure you have a new independent AR book to read. Remember to read for an average of 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week.
11/2: AR Points Due
