Dear Students,
You will have time in class to work on your Tri-Fold Boards in class today.  Please check off items below as you finish them.
If tomorrow is a Blizzard Bag Day, you will be asked to finish up items for your Invention Tri-fold Board in your Google Docs/Google Classroom in place of social studies and writing.  In place of reading, students are asked to practice their speech for their commercial for at least ten minutes.  Students should also make or bring in any props needed for their commercial on Wednesday.  Then spend time practicing answering the questions the judges may ask you on the back of this page.  For students who don't have access to the internet or the internet is unavailable, they will be asked to write out what you want on your boards so that it can be typed in class.  Students must stay within their color scheme when creating colored documents.  
Students will still need to complete their regular math blizzard bag assignment and special assignment (this includes Health!), following the normal Tuesday schedule.
The Grade 6 Team
