Grade 9 first week reflection

What were the high points and low points of this week?
The high points were meeting and getting to know the new students. The low points were getting used to the changes.
How are you planning on organizing yourself to complete homework tasks this year?
I could make a checklist so that I won’t forget the homework given, and it can also remind me of what still needs to be done.
