We had a blast creating a mock session of Congress today!  The students were exposed to the process of how bills become laws, and the order that is within that process!  Be sure to check out one of my favorite movies, Mr. Smith Goes To Washington for even more of a picture of what Congress does!  (and/or watch the clip of his filibuster on Youtube here).

1) Math:  Redo low-scoring quizzes!
2) Read 20 minutes and get it signed–remember that every day read must be signed!!
