Have a wonderful long weekend, everyone! Be sure to get lots of rest and a great breakfast on Monday so you can do your best on DWA! Here is a link to my last 6 square and essay that I modeled today in class, for those who wanted to review it! 🙂
1) Math (unit 8 review): Redo any low scoring quizzes. Good job on our Unit 8 test today!
2) Read 20 minutes & get it signed–shooting for 100%
3) Missing work!
