I hope you are all enjoying the snowy weather we're having! It's meant a lot of shoveling for me, but at least I'm getting a little exercise! It sounds like the kids have been enjoying sledding & building snow forts!
I wanted to let you know that I sent home with each child the "Tentative Blog Assignments" checklist for this trimester in their classroom mail today. I've also posted a PDF of it below. I am asking that students get caught up on blogs before NEXT weekend (2/15) so I can grade them over the weekend and then give them feedback on 2/18. This will be called their "Blogs BEFORE Feedback" grade on the report card.
They will have another week to improve their blog posts (just like last trimester) and I will grade them again on the weekend of 2/22. This will be called their "Blogs AFTER Feedback" grade on the report card. This will be twice the points of the "Blogs BEFORE Feedback" grade.
If you can help your child meet these deadlines for me, it will help a lot. There is a small chance that I will fall one week behind. This extra time is built into the schedule and I will let you know if that happens! Thanks so much in advance! - Paul
