April Showers Bring May Flowers, Welcome to May 2020!!
Hey Kids and Parents! Don't forget that Earth Hour happens this weekend!! What is Earth Hour?! Earth Hour is when as many people in the world, globally, take part in a 1 Hour POWER OFF event! It begins at 8:30 and ends at 9:30 wherever you are in the world! You shut your laptops off, your televisions, computers, video games... every electronic equipment or small appliance, shut it down AND your house lights! Try to be creative in your ideas about what you can do to have fun in the dark! Maybe plan an hour of star gazing out on your porches with your families, spending time together if the weather's good at 8:30 p.m. hang outside and count the constellations! Go play in the snow, weather permitting of course, if not, find some neat indoor activities you can do without the use of power for JUST one hour! When everybody participates globally, they are able to record the amount of cooling down that happens throughout every place! Remember your xbox takes up 90 watts in 3 hours of usage, so in one hour, you are using 30 watts of power JUST from your xbox console!! That's a lot of power if 900 users are gaming across the world at once!! I hope that many people participate in Earth Hour 2015!! I hope to hear many awesome stories on Monday, March 30, about what you did for one hour instead of using power! Keep it creative! Have fun and help save Mother Earth!! :)

Hi Read 180 Students, please be reminded that your homework for tonight consists of the sheet that I have sent home, plus the 20 minutes of reading (or more) per night from the book you have brought home with you. Please be aware that you will be required to do your book test once you have completed your book, so please read carefully and make notes of important details in the section on your reading log, this is what that is for! Be sure to bring all materials and book bags every day to class and home every night for reading practice! Thank you! Miss Ellison

Students! Reading: Please be sure you are reading a minimum of 20 minutes from your chosen Read 180 class books, you may challenge yourself to longer than 20 minutes, but at the minimum, you must be reading 20 minutes every evening! Be sure to complete your Reading Log after you complete your reading each night. Fill in from the page you finished last reading, to the pages you have read at home. Also, be sure to include in the comments section of the Reading Log, written in a good sentence, something that stood out in your mind about what you have read, maybe a question that pops into your head about what you are reading or something related to what you have just finished reading. I encourage also, if you find any interesting quotes that you liked from any of the characters, you might wish to add that to your comment section! Spelling: Be sure to study your spelling words #'s 61 to 70 for Friday, January 9, 2015! Also, bring ALL materials every day to class: Your book, any other assigned materials and your bag that you keep your reading contents in. Thank you and have fun with your reading!! :)
