We went outside to the park yesterday to classify ten living things. Students were asked to classify plants as Vascular and nonvascular and animals into mollusks, arthropods, worms and so on. They were given a classwork grade for it. We will be working on a Protist lab today and will continue working on it next week. They will be given a classwork grade for correctly following the procedure and writing the lab report.

Learning center grades on I-parent.

I'am trying to grade the assignment for learning center as I receive them. By the weekend all the grades will be updated. It might say that some assignments are missing on I-parent for your child. It means that they have not done the activity yet or I have not graded their latest assignment.
