Students in 8-1 and 8-2 corrected and handed in their chapter 4 questions. We began reading chapter 5. 8-2 will miss LA tomorrow due to the Christmas concert in the afternoon. We will resume reading chapter 5 on Friday for them. 8-3 had a chance to compete their chapter 4 responses today and took full advantage of the class time. Everyone in 8-3 should be ready to hand these questions in tomorrow.
Library period today allowed us to set goals and reflect on strategies to help meet these goals in term II. Students discussed goals with me and received new logs for this term. Students had an opportunity after this to continue working on their chapter 4 questions. These are due for 8-1 and 8-2. 8-3 is still playing a bit of catch-up and may hand in the chapter 4 questions on Thursday after a bit of class time tomorrow.
Students worked on their chapter 4 responses today and it was nice to have some work to focus on as it was an emotional morning. I am proud of my students and school community for the care and support they show each other. We will hand in the chapter 4 questions on Wednesday as tomorrow will be a Library and AR goal setting day.
