Mrs. Johnston's Assignments for April 6-10

8th grade Current Events 7th period--Attachments are in Google Classroom
Students should go online to Junior Scholastic.com and log in as a student using the password birdzoo8648 . Browse and read through the articles and complete the attached (3) workbook pages by using the answer sheet I have provided. The workbook page with the map of China is from an article that was deleted from the issue because the information was outdated, but the information you need to complete the map is on the map. When you have completed the 3 pages, you may either take a picture of the answer sheet and text it to me, you may scan it in and email it to me, or when I can find out how you can upload assignments to Google Classroom, I will change this part of the sentence!!! See, I have things to learn too!!

Also, with so much COVID 19 news out there, I would like for you to daily watch the CNN Student News that you have watched with Mrs. Ray this year. Just make a daily note on the answer sheet about one thing you learn from this each day.

Also, I would like for you to check with your parents that they have completed their 2020 Census form. It only took me about 5 minutes to do mine online, or they should have received a paper census to mail in if they prefer. It is important for our state in the money that the federal government contributes to Alabama and the number of representatives we are given in the US House of Representatives. Please check on the bottom of the CNN News sheet if they have completed their civic duty!!


7th Grade Geography
Attached you will find several maps with instructions on them. Attachments are in Google Classroom.
1. The map on wb p. 29A is entitled 5 Regions of Canada. You should color each region according to the directions on the top of wb p. 28; remember to color the map key in the bottom corner. (See the image I uploaded.)
2. On the wb p. 29B called 13 Provinces and Territories you should label the map according to the directions at the top of p.28. Then lightly color each of the 13 Provinces and Territories.  (See the image I uploaded.)
3. Next, on a separate piece of paper, make a T chart labeled capital and provinces/territories at the top, and list the 13 provinces and territories with the name of the capital (Toronto, Ontario). 
4. On the bottom of wb p. 28, write the name of the region under the description of the characteristics. 
5. On Wb p. 30, write the number of the place from the top of the page in the correct circle in the map.
6. On wb pages 20 and 21, I have provided an answer sheet for you to write your answers on. All the information you need to complete the work on these 2 pages are on these pages (not in the book, not on the other wb pages).

7. I am going to upload a video I want you to view that discusses all the above and the Chapter 8 Guided Reading pages from March 30-April 3. Make copies or take pictures of those pages before turning them in on Monday.

Middle School Science Letter


Dear Parents,
The next month is going to be an adventure. We will be doing things we have never done before. I am learning to use all kinds of new technology hoping to help you and your family be successful at home. I hope to never give your middle schooler more than 20 minutes of work each day. High schoolers can expect no more than 30 minutes each day. There are so many things being offered free of charge online right now. I hope you will be able to enjoy them. I am wondering about internet access for each of you. I am planning on using Google Classroom for assignments, Zoom for meetings, and Quizizz for tests, along with YouTube for occasional videos. If you don’t think your internet access will allow you to participate with any of the above list, please let me know. We will make copies for you to pick up once a week.
In the meantime, please do the following:

1.       1. Be sure you can access the email address your child provided to the school the last week we were all together. Unless requested otherwise, teachers plan to use that address for contact. 

2.      2.  Put my cell number in everyone’s phone, (706)575-9748. Text a hello with times you would prefer to meet on Zoom and a brief description of your internet status.

3.      3.  Join my Google classrooms using class codes email from the office. They can also be found on the blogs. 7th grade- be sure to join the elective Current Events class also.

4.      4.  Be on the lookout for an email invitation to meet on Zoom. You need a free account with them. If you don’t have one yet, go ahead and set that up prior to our meeting time.

5.     5.   I will generate another invitation to join my Quizizz classes. Join again even if you have done so in the past. The students know to use ONLY the name I call them in class. Anything else will get them removed from the role and result in a zero on tests.  I will edit the classes before the first test. Include a parent email so you can see grades quickly.

I hope you are having fun and are not overwhelmed already. I homeschooled for 17 years. It gets hard at times even when you choose the lifestyle. We will get through this together. Try to find a balance that keeps peace and learning. As a home school administrator, I used to tell families the more control students have in their learning, the easier it is to keep them motivated and learning.
I am praying for you every day. Stay in touch. The quickest way to get in touch with me will be a text. I promise to answer quickly.

God bless,
Sandi Merrill
