Block 1- The Water Cycle
Bloque 1- El ciclo del agua
Práctica de vocabulario del ciclo del agua
Today, Friday September 9th, we have taken our first vocabulary test.
Grades can be checked on-line. If a student wants to retake the test for a better grade, they need to do some extra practice before they try again.
As I mentioned last week, the vocabulary words can be found on www.quizlet.com under this title:
- Ciencias bloque I- El ciclo del agua-
In case students have no access to the internet, they also have vocabulary cards to study.
I have sent home some information on the app "remind". Please, sign up if you have a smart phone as it is the easiest fastest way to get notifications about assignments.
These are the notes we have been working on this week.
Students should be reviewing them at home on a regular basis.
They may take their folder home to study, but it has to be brought back to school everyday.
