My 6th grade classes continue reading The One and Only Ivan this week.  6th graders have their Children's Book Final Draft due this Wednesday.  6th graders also get their Persuasive Speech first draft rubric this Wednesday; that speech first draft is due February 15th.  My 7th grade classes work on their Poetry Book this week; the 7th grade Poetry Book Final Draft is due February 13th.  7th graders also get their Poetry Recital rubric this Thursday; students will recite their memorized poems on February 21st.
