Follow this link to the Learning-Passport pages. These are agreements between students, parents, and Dr. Montgomery that need to be signed so that we can go on the learning adventures planned for the year. Each of these agreements and visas need to be printed, signed by both parents and students, and returned to Dr. Montgomery. Students and parents need to keep one copy at home and at school.

Academic Vocabulary

Human Migration Stories Vocabulary

Double-click on the file below and save it to your "G" drive. This will give you a head start on understanding the vocabulary you will need this year. Hold the ctrl key and left-click to activate the links on the words and pictures. Your assignment is to work in your vocabulary teams to explore three words and to write about these words on your team's Wiki space. We will consolidate everyone's work when complete.

We will be turning what we develop into a game for use throughout the year. Note that some of the links to Spanish reflect the difference in use in words between English and Spanish. Some of the sources we link to are not always going to be trusted for detail and all work well to develop working definitions of the words.
