Bedside 5!Research shows that reading and studying information the last minutes before going to sleep helps our brains move that information into our long-term memory. Each month students will be given information that makes school life easier. The goal is to study this information 4-5 evenings before bed. This will give it a better chance at moving into long-term memory. If you can't study it before you go to bed, study at a time that works best for you. The idea is to memorize the information.

This month's bedside 5 is dealing with concepts in TSB. A study sheet will be sent home this Wednesday and the test will be Wed. Oct 13th.

Extended DayStarts Next Mon. and Thurs. 2:40-3:40. We will start by working on our current events and then move to reading stratagies. You don't need to sign up. This will be a great time to get extra help on your homework and fine tune the "hand".
