I am very pleased to send home the student's Rock Collections that I marked. Please sign and return the marking sheet that was sent home to be reviewed (Duff dollars are given for returning it). I have encouraged the kids to check through the rubric/marking sheet before they bring in their monthly projects, to ensure they get top marks. If they aim for the top mark, they will succeed. There are no surprises with a rubric.
We are wrapping up the Rocks and Mineral unit and there will be a test on the following Tuesday, Oct. 16th. I will provide study cards to prepare for the test. I encourage the kids to study these before bedtime, on the way to hockey, gymnastics, waiting at the grocery store, etc.....by the weekend, the students should be able to sort them into two piles, the pile they know and a the pile, they don't. Then they can focus on the don't know pile for Tuesday. We will also be studying at school. This tool will be the only thing they need to study as it sums up all we covered in the unit. If you have any questions, please drop me a note or email.
Mrs. Duff and her students will keep you posted on what we are up to!
