1st Period: Social Studies 400
Some of my first period students eat breakfast in my room. This is okay as long as they clean up after themselves.
We've been watching the movie "Rabbit Proof Fence" on Netflix. We are far enough into the movie, the kids should be able to complete the assignment linked above. I have sent this link to their school email.
Our guest speaker planned for Friday has rescheduled to next Wednesday.

Continue to read from Freedom Writers. We usually read about ten pages a day. You may choose to read aloud or silently.
Begin compiling favorite quotes from the book in preparation for the final project. I told the kids they need to choose twenty quotes from the book. They should write their favorite quotes in a notebook or they may type their quotes and send via email. They need to have their favorite quotes selected by Monday.

A handful of kids eat lunch in class this period. As long as they clean up after themselves, I don't mind. (Darren, TJ, Nolan, Andrew) I also have another student who comes into my room the first half of the class. He's not a member of the class. He sits with the class, eats his lunch and sometimes participates in discussion. (Darrion) He leaves at the bell.
Continue reading The Secret Life of Bees. We usually read about 10 pages a day. You may choose to read aloud (popcorn reading) or read silently.
Work on The Secret Life of Bees final project. We started working on this assignment yesterday. Everyone needs to choose six characters from the book and make a "flip book." They may use the computers to look for pictures or to type quotes for their projects.
