Typer Shark

I found another typing game to add to our list.
Typer Shark
I think it's the most fun of any free typing game I've come across. You may need to download a plug-in for the game to work on your home computer. Let me know if you can't get it to work.

Your task for the week is to practice typing each day and post your highest score or words per minute along with your name. Try different levels to see what is not too hard or too easy for you. Good luck!

Holes Presentations!

I finally got the videos to load, so here are the two skits related to the book Holes.

Our public speaking skills have improved so much from the beginning of the year! Great job, students!

Catch Up Week

With the many snow days and all of your hard work on the science fair, I have decided to give you a week off. Please look back at your past blog assignments and get caught up on any you may have missed.
Have a good long weekend!

Careers in Science

We recently finished our eight week science program with The Discovery Center, and I would like for all of you to start thinking about how science is important to so many jobs. The Discovery Center has a link here that provides plenty of information about careers in science.

Your assignment this week is to research careers in science and choose one science career that you think is interesting. Write a comment that explains what the career is and why you think it is interesting. Be sure to write in complete sentences.

You have until Friday to leave your comment!
