When we have the laptops today, please attend to the following items:

  • Check your Google Docs for any items that have not yet been placed into your student folder. Drag those items into your folder.
  • Make sure ALL of your docs AND presentations have your student number in the title.
  • After renaming your Africa PowerPoint to include your student number, add it to the Africa PowerPoints folder on the server. (see image below)
  • Please revise your trading card bio to have only 50 words or less.
  • Add your reviews of today's presentations here: Africa Presentation Reviews
  • If there's time, check your Missing Assignments spreadsheet.

Each name in the resulting map links to another Literature Map, so the odds that you'll find something new to read are really good!

Rumor has it that you have a science test Tuesday on chapter three. Just a reminder that there are science links on the Great Links page of this website. Don't forget to visit the website that goes with your textbook:
Be sure to also check Khan Academy for their videos on chemistry and math. Discovery Education also has great videos (some of which you've already seen).

Just a reminder that tomorrow, Tuesday, is our Walk-a-Jog-a-Thon! Don't forget to wear free dress...just make sure it's suitable for jogging and/or walking. You might consider bringing a hat and some sunscreen.

Have you gotten LOTS of pledges?!

Document Title Reminder

posted Sep 25, 2011, 7:51 AM by Karen McMillan   [ updated Sep 25, 2011, 7:55 AM ]

Please remember to title your Google Docs assignments correctly. If you don't give it the correct title, I won't grade it! Remind yourself that every assignment you turn in, be it on paper or online, needs to have your student number. In Google Docs, your title will look like this: [Student #] Title of Assignment. For example, for the recent social studies assignment the title was "Chapter Two Timeline." If my student number is 737, then my presentation would be titled: 737 Chapter Two Timeline.

A number of timelines were "turned in" with the incorrect title. Please check yours as soon as possible. Thanks!!
