Mrs Pham week of Septenber 14th -18th, 2015

This Week

We did not get a chance to take our Math Unit 1 CFA as planned. It will have to be after the break. In Science, we worked on researching our science fair topics and learned what is the difference between independent variables and dependent variable. In Social Studies, we learned about Christopher Columbus and Juan Ponce de Leon. Last but not least, we got to the climax of The Maze of Bones where Amy and Dan went into the Catacombs in Paris to find the second clue to becoming the world's most powerful people.

Story of the Week: Write a story using the vocabularies

By Vienna Nguyen

One day a not very attractive girl walked by a vanity store that needed employees. The girl walked in and followed the sign that indicated where to go to qualify for the job. They asked her a few questions and she answered them in long responses. The next day, the girl realized that she got the job. Her job was to carry in boxes. Sometimes the manager would consent her to take a break to buy shabby clothes.

One day the manager gave the girl another job to thaw ice and manipulate them into scuptures. Sometimes she would pulverized the ice into snow cones and sell them using a psuedonym, like Amy's Snow Cones. Both jobs were important but she chose to carry heavy loads. she was always so dependable at work. The manager will never forget her.
