The week of October 9th - 13th

This week, all of my classes will get their Journals and Reading Logs checked for progress on Friday.  This Journal/Reading Log check is not graded; it's just to make sure students are not too far behind on these two majoy Q1 assignments.  Students are expected to have at least 10 pages written (back-to-back) in their Journals by this Friday, and students are expected to have at least 3 Reading Log entries filled out by this Friday.

My 6th grade classes have their Community paragraph assignment due this Thursday.  6th graders also have Grammar homework this week.  My 7th grade classes have Grammar homework and Vocabulary/spelling homework this week.  7th graders also start their Anne Frank/Book Thief unit this week.

The Knowledge Bowl team has practice this Friday, October 13th from 8:40-9:20 in Room 213.  You can check out our classroom Facebook page to view student work and other happenings in my classroom.  Have a great week everyone!
