The Grade 6s are preparing for a quiz next week. Today and tomorrow they will be reviewing the chapter p. 82-83. No actual new homework was assigned.
Gr. 5s are working on using front end rounding to help with multiplication questions. No actual new homework was assigned today.

We have completed "Tuck Everlasting", and the final assignment was collected today. We then had a discussion about the merits of living forever or not, which is the book's main theme. For tomorrow students should have prepared a brief summary of those discussions: a paragraph to introduce the concept, a paragraph extolling the virtues of remaining alive forever, another paragraph on why a person shouldn't drink from a spring that would ensure immortality, and a final paragraph showing me what your child's personal views are on the subject. (F)
