Welcome to week 2 of online school. As always, feel free to contact me with questions or concerns at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Junior high students will need to check the blogs of ALL of their teachers. Also, please remember to check daily for any updates. It would be a good idea to print out the blogs and write all work in your planner on the correct day. This will help you to stay organized. Please refer to last week's post for instructions regarding using homework passes. Do not begin IXL minutes or recommendations for this week before Monday, March 23.. All assignments/ recommendations are due on the next school day at 8:00AM...just as they are during regular school. In addition to completing IXL recommendations, please remember to finish your IXL minutes by Friday 8:00AM...just like during regular school. All google classroom assignments will post at 8:00am daily. You can check the google classroom after 8:00am and do the assignments at any time you wish. They must be turned in by 8:00AM the next day, unless otherwise stated. If no work is done on a particular day, the student will be marked absent for that day. Keep going...you're doing a great job! Looking forward to seeing your smiling faces this week on our ZOOM meetings!
6th grade religion:
I will list regular religion assignments as well as Lent calendar assignments. Remember you will need to complete a total of 25 activities on the calendar by the end of Lent. Remember to pray!!!
Lent calendar: make a thank you card for Mario at school. Please email me a picture of it. Put it in your turn-in folder
regular assignment: Watch the short video on Saint Corona on google classroom and answer the questions.
Lent calendar: pray for 15 minutes and email to let me know that you did this
regular assignment: none. This was our week of half days, and you would not have had religion class today.
Lent calendar: Research who is the other saint of pandemics (not mentioned in Monday's video). Email me the answer
"We are the World" was written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie in 1985 for Africa. Then it was recorded 25 years later in 2010 for Haiti. Why are the lyrics relevant today? How do they apply to the situation the world is in today with the Coronavirus? Go to Google classroom, find the assignment, listen to the song, and write your answers in complete sentences. At least 3 sentences.
Lent calendar: Take out the garbage at home. Have your parents email me.
regular assignment: Go go google classroom. There is a link to read the Gospel. Please respond on google classroom by giving me at least 3 sentences telling me what the Gospel is about. Remember, no one's answer should be exactly the same as anyone else's answer. Let's remember to be honest in our work.
Lent calendar: Pray for the homeless. Email to let me know you did this.
No regular assignment...you can have "song practice" at home if you would like.
Lent Calendar: Fast from technology today. Email to tell me what you did today, instead of using devices.
