Homework:

Math:
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.

Reading:
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)
