Knocked Out But Not Down For the Count

For the rest of the day today, we...
  1. tried, and failed, to take the NWEA test in the computer lab--hopefully the technology (not Woodbrook's tech, the NWEA tech) will be more cooperative tomorrow.
  2. wrote and brainstormed funny anecdotes from family stories to see if we could make those into personal narratives. I shared one I like to call "Funeral For a Cat". 
  3. read an article about athletic burnout and what real athletes do in order to battle it.
  4. learned about the California Gold Rush in our geography unit--how does geography tie in with history? We've already learned a few things about that this school year.
These kids are working hard. Give them a big hug and let them know how proud you are of them today.

Everyone have a wonderful day. Talk soon.
