Hampton: Business Technology
Students learned how to better navigate the internet browser and the different tools they can use within it. Students shared with everyone how they use the internet in their life. We discussed how to use the internet as a research tool and began to research and answer questions about what we have learned in business technology and social studies in a google form. Every week they get more and more comfortable using a computer and the potential they have working with technology.
My students are excited about our robot. They are enjoying voting on every part. We almost have it finished!!
On our quiz on unit rates, we had 60 out of 72 made 100’s.

Mr. Comeaux spoke to the students on character and being kind. Students were interested and participated in asking him questions. Mrs. Harris came and taught a lesson on Egyptian Social Classes. Then the students worked on Expository Essays and were very motivated in their writings.

This week, students reviewed book genres by viewing a short video and playing an online matching game followed by a short quiz. The results were great. Many students scored 100% on the quiz.
This week, students extended the lesson on "Think Big" a positive song about having goals and dreams. They began by brainstorming about jobs, occupations or careers that they are interested in. They then attempted to write raps or rhymes about those jobs. Listed below are few of many.
