This week:

Monday-Introduction to Multiplication of Negative Numbers

Tuesday-Introduction to Division of Negative Numbers

Wednesday-Practice all operations

Language Arts-- Mrs. Martin

Students have just finished their Unit 2 assessment to write an essay about the effects of irrational thinking.


This week we will be reading and analyzing the play version of A Christmas Carol, and comparing the character of Ebineezer Scrooge to other literary and pop culture characters. Students will not have any homework this week.


I will be accepting missing work until Wednesday 12/18. Please help make sure that your student has submitted all assignments before the end of school on this date.


Thank you and enjoy your upcoming break!
