Friday, September 19, 2014 **PROGRESS REPORTS DISTRIBUTED**

Today Ms. Willacy will be in to video tape period 1!!! Periods 4-6 will be completing the same activity, just without Ms. Willacy and her film crew.

Today, our activity will be a review of what we have learned in Unit A: Translations.

After a short Vocabulary review on your Quizlet (or flashcards), we will answer the questions on our padlet in our groups.

Next, we will work on a Tetris worksheet that is located in Canvas. These will be completed on the iPads and in your groups. You should be thinking about how this relates to the material taught and be able to explain this when asked.

Period 1 and 4, I will airdrop you a problem to complete relating to the Tetris activity. If there is enough time in class, this will be completed before you leave. If not, it will be homework. You answers will be posted on a padlet. Please use this opportunity to explore your classmates answers. This is an individual activity!

Have an AMAZING day! And period 1, enjoy being special today! YOU will show the world how amazing you are! I am so proud of you!

Have a great weekend! Remember, tonight's Football Game is AWAY at Anclote High School! I hope to see you all there! I will be there with my pom-poms, plus I will have my jersey on (thanks Tori!) and hanging out with Ms. Ortiz. Look for us and don't forget to say hi :)
