We will be testing on Chapters 1-3 this week.  Thursday for you A-Day'ers, and Friday for you B-Day'ers.  Make sure you have your packets completed, your work packet, your coversheet packet that has all of your notes from 1-2, vocabulary for all chapters, all chapter reviews, your KWL chart, and your Ch 3 assignments!

Chapters 2 & 3

Chapter 2 is another chapter that you will go over on your own.  It goes over business types, advantages/disadvantages of each type, GAAP, and how the accounting system works.  Be sure to take good notes on the PowerPoint, complete your vocabulary as well as the chapter review in your packet.

Chapter 3 is where we actually get into accounting!  This chapter explains the accounting equation, what ASSETS, LIABILITIES, AND OWNER'S EQUITY are.  These are the basics and fundamentals of accounting, so it is imperative that you know and understand the concepts from this chapter.  I was kind enough to create a listening guide for this chapter, so rather than creating your own notes, you will fill out the listening guide.  It follows right along with the PowerPoint.  :)  Be sure to pick up the assignment packet so that you can finish the assignments listed on your coversheet.

Let's Start Accounting, Shall We?

Bell quizzes...I showed you all how to divide a regular sheet of paper and how we'll do bell quizzes.  Disclosures---if you haven't shown your parents how to get on the blog and go over the disclosures, make sure you get that done by the end of the week. 

Introductory chapter, chapter 1 is what we went over today.  I passed out your first packet that contains all of your assignments.  I showed you how to gain access to the Q: drive, and how to pull down the powerpoints.  I'll post them here:  1.1, and 1.2.  While going over those powerpoints, take notes.  Once that's done, complete your vocabulary and chapter review for Ch 1.
