Happy Spring Break!

Happy Spring Break!  I'm sorry I couldn't be with you today, but as a father I couldn't miss my son's performance in his school play.  I expect each of you to be on your very best behavior today.  Follow the directions of your substitute and the activities outlined on the blogs.  If I discover that any of you are using your Chromebooks inappropriately during class time and/or not giving your substitute teacher proper respect, you will have serious consequences when I return.  With that said, I wish each of you a Happy Easter and a relaxing Spring Break!  

Warm Up: Typing Practice  Good morning!  Let's get the day started with a little typing practice.  Open up your Typing Club app and get started!  

Newsela  Please visit Newselalogin, click 'Binder,' and locate the article about NASA and space travel. Change the reading level to 880L (Grade Level: 5.0).  Read carefully and take the quiz.  Good luck!  

Homework  (1.) 30 minutes of silent reading at home.  Make sure to record your reading on one of the digital reading logs available.  Our weekly Google Form reading log is here and the Google Spreadsheet reading log can be found here.    (2.) Over Spring Break you need to read an additional 3 days and make at least 3 digital reading log entires.  Deadline: I will check your Digital Reading Log when we return on Tuesday, April 22.  I will be looking for a total of 8 entires (5 from this current week and 3 during Spring Break).  The Reading Log will be worth 40 points.
