Extra Credit

Extra Credi Here we go. 7th graders please email your answers to Mr. Weinrich. However, your answers will not be valid unless you comment on the level of difficulty, interest, and length of time it took you to email your answers. You may only participate once. Also, the first 3 people in each 8th grade class will be eligible for 10% on what ever they want.

Question 1- Name the exact date, location (city and state) of the First Observance of Thanksgiving, and what does the month and day have in common with Mr. Weinrich?

Question 2- Who was the first President to issue a Thanksgiving proclamation? When did he sign it (month, day, and year)? When was it to be observed?

    You could post trivia questions and if you get it right you could get rid of your worst grade or (depends on difficulty of E.C.) turn it to a hundred percent.

  2. can i leave another comment??????????? oh well, i will anyway!! hehehe this is fun… :] ok, so for EC on the website Mr. Weinrich should have a scavenger hunt type of thing. like he should put website names or just have it on the salem website and then if u email him the right website wins!!!! or………………………………………. Mr. Weinrich could have people quess random trivia questions about HIMSELF!!(so people cant just google it to find the answer!)

  3. on a test

  4. you should take away your lowest test grade at the end of the quarter and add 10% to it. Or you can make your lowest homework grade a 100%.

    Wow, Brett, way to post two different comments in one sentence, i totally wish i will grow up to be as cool as you are (but i probably wont)

  6. Riley Boulger Says:

    i like the trivia idea…..

  7. the most AU'SOME person eva!!! Says:

    I totally think U should give out either 10% on homework!!!

  8. the most AU'SOME person eva!!! Says:

    Or U should give 5% on a test!!!

    I totally think ppl will pick the test though!!!


    Im so AU’SOME cause Im “THAT WAY!”

  9. the most AU'SOME person eva!!! Says:





    Im so AU’SOME cause Im “THAT WAY!”

  10. i think you should give us a fee assignment

  11. Riley Boulger Says:

    i think it would be a good idea to do trivia questions, and have a different topic every day, week, month, even quarter, and it could also tie into our history.

  12. uclachick4 aka Kara:) Says:

    Hi!! I really like the scavenger hunt idea! Or maybe something on the cardinals or history. Like something we might study! Bye! See ya!! Ash and i have some good comebacks so be ready!!! πŸ™‚


    p.s. like my smiley faces?? i do! πŸ™‚

  13. TROUBLE11 (cam) Says:

    like hannah said (she stole my idea) do a scanveger hunt for random things.

  14. coolperson#1 Says:

    the most AU’SOME person eva!!! (not!) is DANIEL hahaha i found u hehehehehehe

  15. the most AU'SOME person EVA!!! Says:


    i disagree with you greatly!

    just as mr. weinrich said:

    Its no use to have trivia questions when you could just google them up!!!



    Im so AU’SOME cause Im “THAT WAY!”

  16. Hmmm…I guess I replied on the 8th grade one, not the 7th grade one…oops. So my idea was to make people make up a song about Mr. Weinrich’s choice of information. And then they have to perform it in front of the class. It’s right up your alley, Mr. Weinrich, you get to humiliate kids in front of their peers and you get to be entertained. πŸ˜‰ What’s not to love? Plus, the rest of the class would get a kick out of it too. Think about it.

  17. kennedi turner Says:

    I think you should give us 8% extra credit on a test! That would be awesome!!!! Bye Bye

  18. Hayden O'Leary Says:

    You should play a game and the winner of the game gets to make up a question for the week. If any one gets it right they can get 5% EC or more depending on the question and how many people get it right.:)


    PS: I hope you do my idea.

  19. Kara Dome Says:

    P.S. dont you love my smiley faces!! πŸ™‚

  20. Michael B. Says:

    Well, i think we should have to get 10%extra credit on a test for answering and getting a weeks worth of questions right. So that way more people would come on to the Salem website so that way all of us will start to get actively involved in the Salem website.

  21. Hi!!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  24. Taylor Messick Says:

    I like caitlyn’s idea. But i would also like to get 10% extra credit points on a test. But we could to fun games or also trivia questions on your blog!! THAT IS SUCH A GREAT IDEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  25. I am right there with you Caitlyn, I postd mine in the 8th grade section too. Whatever

    I think a good extra credit option would be to be able to do extra credit is picking a historical landmark in Ourange county and Bringing in a picture of it and a brief summor. You could get a free assignment or 5% on a test

  26. I love Caitlyn’s idea!! It rocks!! But I think you should do it to!! OR……….. do trivia questions that can’t be googled!!!!!!! That is so cheap!!! (I do it all the time!!) How you doin’ Mr. Dub!! is that ok if i call you that!!!


    Taylor on dad’s computer!!!

  27. Michael Busslinger Says:

    The trivia idea is really cool, but i think we should have a darts contest for those who go on the website and place an answer for extra credit, and the winner of the darts game would recieve 10% extra credit on either History or Spelling.

  28. Michael Busslinger Says:

    Good idea Caitlyn, giving Mr. Weinrich idea’s for us to get humiliated by each others peers. Very smart. Oh, and Mr. Weinrich, i hope u go with my idea.

    -See you in class Mr. Weinrich

    (p.s. Being sick is not fun at all.)

  29. I think you should have a couple of questions about yourself. But it has to be the top four or firve to turn in their answer

  32. cweinrich Says:

    May I remind those leaving comments, please do not answer the extra credit on the blog for all to see, just leave comments about what you thought about the question, the difficulty and the time it took you to figure it out. I will delete all answers on the blog and you will be eliminated from the contest!!! Thank you for your participation!!!

  33. hannah tardie Says:

    oooooooooo… SORRY!!!! πŸ™‚

  34. I dont get the question? I mean i read the question but everyone keeps putting up comments on EC! someone please help me!!!! 😦

    I still dont get it but i think it is about EC so i really like caitlyns idea!!! I it awsome.. I think i should give my own comment to! πŸ™‚

    i think we should play scarades (how do you spell that) and you should be the one doing it and whoever guesses what you are first gets the EC! πŸ™‚

    P.S. I still dont get the question on the top!!!! 😦 😦 😦 😦

  35. OMG! I just read your comment on top and i was right about everything!!!! BY the way the question are hard and I would rank them both a 6 because i could just look them on ask.com and i will just guess on the one about you πŸ˜‰

    I promise this is going to be my last comment today! πŸ™‚

    see ya!!!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  38. Matt Stumme Says:

    I think that is cool how u can earn extra credit for yur grade. I also think its cool how the teachers have blogs.

  39. Tyler Van Matre Says:

    Hey Mr. W. About the extra credit question, it took me about 10 minutes to do it. It was sort of easy. I would give it a 6 for level of difficulty. I liked that it wasn’t to hard.

  40. Jacob Doddridge Says:

    I have to say Mr. Wienrich, the extra credit took me a long time to figure out , but it was very interesting and it was kind of hard.
