Do Now: We started off the day with the Do Now, as always. The Do Now today consisted of visiting http://quizlet.com/ to learn some new words connected to our learning this quarter. Once we felt like we understood the words we could go back and review other words that we had learned in the beginning of the quarter.
Flyswatter: As crazy as the name sounds, Flyswatter is actually a game. Ms. Vallillo explained the rules to the class. There was a sheet with all the words we had learned throughout the quarter. Whenever she says the definitions of the words, you had to touch the correct word that the definition describes before your partner does. The objective of the game was to help us practice the definitions of the words as they were very important to our learning this quarter.
