Mallory Sub Lessons Mon. 9/19

  1. Civics- Current Events Worksheet (I will put it on the desk in the Civics room Friday). Rhonda will leave newspapers. The front half has to do with news in general, the back half has to do with the unit we're studying. If they have trouble, ask them to do the best that they can and to use their Ch.18 notes to help them if they need to. If they can't answer the last question, they may leave it blank. These are due at the end of the class period, please collect them.
  2. Civics-
  3. Drawing & Seeing- Students will h ave begun their first major drawing on Friday which they will continue working on today (Monday) AND tomorrow (Tues 9/20). If they have any questions, they should re-read  pp. 105-110 in out book. Another option for some students would be to work on their copies of the St. Jerome drawing on p.82 in our book (this should be done upside-down). 

  4. MS Art- DEAR time (silent reading) 11:29-11:49 PLEASE HAVE STUDENTS READ, SILENTLY
    Students may make whatever they'd like to in clay today. I suggest animals of figurines, but so long as it's school-appropriate, anything goes. Wednesday we will learn a new construction method and Friday will be our last day with clay.
    Clean-up is important. Please have kids put tools and clay away and wash their hands beginning at 12:27 or 12:30
    Please make sure the lid is securely on the barrel.

  5. Independent Study- Makayla Carter will work on her latest painting. Katie Cogdill and Ally Kahl may come to work on digital photography in the Yearbook Computer Lab, but probably not since they have Weight Training Mondays.

  6. Painting-
    Elsa, Kameren, and Rodolfo (maybe Pat) will finish working on their complementary-color portraits. Everyone else should complete the Art History Worksheet (on the island). This is due at the end of the class period. They need to share books and return the books to where they got them when they're finished with them.

  7. Yearbook- 
    YrBk I students should work on the Photo II Reading Guide for pp.92-97 Due at the end of class (I will have it on the island). 
    YrBk II students (Christian & Danielle) please work on Football and Volleyball pages or tag pictures on
