Suggested Practice for Monday, April 20th - Friday, April 24th:
The following 3 activities are instructional resources that are not required, but are opportunities for students who wish to continue with instructional opportunities to stay sharp! While nothing can replace face to face interaction within the classroom, access to instructional materials and opportunities are essential during an extended closure. These resources will NOT be for a grade, but I can offer feedback, as needed, to help with the continual growth of my students here at BHS.
