This week in class, we have been answering the questions in the workbook on the topics we have been learning about (Nutrition and Digestion). Students are working to complete pages 185-194 in the workbook, which are from chapter 18, sections 1 through 4 and the review. This is done in class (due to the textbook shortage, I have not sent home textbooks). If a student is falling behind (for reasons which may include reading difficulties, and/or not using their time wisely), I am here afterschool on Fridays until 4; students may come in and work at that time. Homework center also has copies of textbooks for students to use.
