Word of the Week - Bias

REMINDER: Each week we give six students a backpack with a gift certificate in it when they can tell us the word, what it means and use it correctly in a sentence.

Please post the word of the week green paper in your classroom.

Last Weeks' winners were: Amanda Dawson (10), Jeremiah Foster (12), Audriana Leal (12), Mia Lewis (12), Heavenna Mims (10), Hira Singh (10), Mariam Samy (12),
