My name is Mrs. Wedel
And, I have a cat named Boston Blackie
I also have another cat named Maisie. I love my pets: cats or dogs. My husband works at Bethel College as an Assistant Professor of History. He teaches American History, Sociology, and Peace and Justice classes. We enjoy reading, libraries, exploring Kansas, music events, films, and antiquing. Some things you probably should know about me:
- In a former life, I sang opera and performed in music theatre.
- I love to read historical fiction books and am exploring the soft mystery genre.
- I love working in the fiber arts: quilting, knitting, and embroidery.
- I enjoy gardening for about two hours.
- I enjoy old movies and old radio shows.
Welcome to Room 151
For the fourth quarter, we will be working on Module 2, 3 and 4 in Engage New York. This will be covering long division, adding and subtracting fractions, and begin multiplying and dividing fractions. They will be doing their work in their student notebooks, and you will not necessarily see a lot of Math pages coming home. However, there will be content pages about every two weeks or so that will be graded. As always, they can correct their work for more points.
In Social Studies, we will be finishing out the year with the Revolutionary War and come full circle with the Constitution. We have looked at the United States Constitution, the Mayflower Compact, the Iroquois Confederacy Constitution, and various primary documents from the Revolutionary War to tell the big story of the growth of the United States.
