If any of the children or their parents ask you about immigration issues, refer them to me, as we will be giving them some written information on this and other issues important to them within the next few days.

practice handshakes and manners

Manners are important! In order for students to have good manners, they need to work on them every single day. Spend a few minutes each day talking about manners and building on these soft skills. Work on building all the virtues we have covered this year.

WOW: Differentiate

meaning: See or state the difference

can be used instead of: contrast, distinguish

Study Skill: Highlight the answers in the text

how to incorporate the study skill:

Using a highlighter or your finger, you should highlight the words or sentences that provided you with the answers to the questions. This requires you to have to prove the answers to yourself rather than guess. You may need to re-read the passage to find the answers.

Virtue: Purposefulness

I will send out next week's lesson plan as soon as I receive it. In the meantime, ENJOY YOUR WEEKEND!
