1 Welcome to 6th Grade Earth Science & 7th grade Life Science with Mrs. Fischer Room F-2 Welcome to 6th Grade Earth Science & 7th grade Life Science with Mrs. Fischer Room F-2

2 When Students Quietly Enter Take out materials & homework for stamping Write homework into Planner Sit in seat before bell rings Do the Daily “Sponge” activity Begin class! Take out materials & homework for stamping Write homework into Planner Sit in seat before bell rings Do the Daily “Sponge” activity Begin class!

3 Green Sheet A Green Sheet went home outlining the essential course information. Your student is required to keep it in their science binder - in front of Sponge section. Access it on the classroom webpage or in your student’s binder.
