Ms. Smith, Gone, 5th Hour

Today, sadly Ms. Smith was gone in preparation for a wedding so our substitute was Mrs. Rediske. Also, because of the Spring Pep Assembly, our class period was 10 minutes shorter. Everyone, but Ms. Smith, was here today! We took the quiz left over from yesterday’s class period (because of the German photographer that came out to take pictures of our Fishbowl). Extra credit: who was the first person vaporized in the game yesterday? (answer: Tyler)

After everyone finished the quiz, the rest of the class turned into a class of completely on-task students ready to get to work; with a little side conversations in the mix. Our substitute did not want any talking; today was to be a hard work day, but those left over groups to still present were allowed to continue planning. The amazing group of Leslie, Whitney, Maddie, and Ashley spent much of the time grading quizzes, others read, and some posted their comments on the blog (be sure to have that done). Also, Hannah, Kristina, Morgan, and Dawnielle finished grading the quizzes (but they couldn't hand them back because Ms. Smith still needs to record them in the grade book) and since the scores were not so great, they generously curved the quiz 2 points. Also, Mrs. Rediske said that earlier today a laptop went missing and it gave her and Mrs. Leclaire a real scare, so we had to put our laptops away 5 minutes before the end of class. We were definitely sad to not have Ms. Smith with us today!

For homework:

  • We are to read pgs. 147-167 for Monday as well as “study” for the grammar quiz (on Monday).
  • The deadline for the IPoem is 3:00 p.m., April 28 in the classes drop-box!
  • It also may be smart for anyone that has not read ahead, to read ahead because next week, in total we will have to have read 126 pages total!
