What a great week this was. While I did miss being with my class on Tuesday and Wednesday, I did learn about our new NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards). I am excited to begin our first NGSS unit on Physical Science.
The students have been getting better at signing on to their computers to work on Readworks.org and/or iReady. Both of these can be accessed at home and should be worked on at home. For the rest of their school careers, the students will need to be able to access the Internet often. When my son started middle school, he even had to turn in assignments online. It is great for them to become computer literate in this era.
I am looking forward to a nice weekend. I am going to Big Bear with some of my running/hiking friends. While they are hiking, I will be back at the cabin preparing food for them. Can't risk falling and pushing my broken nose out of place. For now, I just get to take it easy.
