Spring Break--no new work or meetings

Mar 31-Apr 6  

There is one assignment this week, and it goes with the Van Hiele lesson.
The new lessons are just re-learning vocabulary that you hopefully already knew.
Lesson 6.4
Lesson 6.5
I want to concentrate on the lesson plans coming in, so there won't be an assignment for these lessons, but there are some practice problems.

Apr 7-13 Saturday, April 13 in River Falls Many people are turning in lesson plans (yay!) which leaves me less time for other things (aw) so once again, these lessons have no assignment, but study the practice problems to be ready for the test.
Lesson 6.6
Lesson 6.7.
If you are teaching this week or next week you may put off taking the test until next month. If you wait until next month, you must plan on either being to class early or staying late to take this test.
