Because of worsening conditions, and an unsafe school site, we have made the decision to close school today.
Below are some challenges that you can complete by commenting on this post.
Challenge yourself to a descriptive piece of writing:
- A short recount from the snow or school’s perspective over the last couple of days. What’s their side of the story? How do they feel?
- A setting description of what it looks like out of your window or somewhere close to your home. You could include: adjectives, adverbs, similes, metaphors or personification.
Still stuck? Use the Alan Peat sentence types from older posts on the blog to get you started. You could also use iSPACE Openers to start you off:
- Last Wednesday, students could choose ham or turkey sandwiches for lunch. The canteen made 72 sandwiches in all, 25% of which were turkey. How many turkey sandwiches did the canteen make?
- There are 80 seats on a train. 75% of the seats are empty. How many empty seats are there on the train?
- Yesterday, there were 10 problems assigned for maths homework. Sasha did 20% of them correctly. How many problems did Sasha get right?
- In order to select new board members, the French club held an election. 80% of the 70 members of the club voted. How many members voted?
- In hopes of encouraging healthier snacks at school, Peter brought in a tray of carrot sticks and apple slices to share. The tray had a total of 100 snacks, of which 10% were carrot sticks. How many carrot sticks did Peter bring?
Remember, a lot of you found finding 10% (divide by 10), 50% (divide by 2) or 1% (divide by 100) a good place to start when answering questions like these.
