Today we got our first introduction to the 8 bit binary language computers use. We made bracelets with our initials in a secret code...not really but boy that sounds cool! People will think you really know a secret code after you learn more about binary next week.
Homework will be posted on Edmodo tomorrow. Sounds like we had a lot of fun with the Sudoku puzzles this week, any guesses what the theme will be for this week's homework?
Students being awarded toys this week will be announced during this afternoon's announcements. Since tomorrow is early release please have them pick their toys up Friday morning as soon as they get to school.
