Thank you all for the wonderful class gift of skin care products, Peet's Coffee, and cash (I went shopping at Third Street Promenade with my girls!) Thank you also for all of the individual holiday gifts, cards, and treats. I am working on thank you notes, so they will come home soon. I'm so lucky to have such a wonderful group of kids and such supportive and generous parents! I wish Peace and Joy to all of you in the New Year!
- Read Sign of the Beaver, Chapter 5-6 closely and carefully. There is no Edmodo prompt tonight. Please use the "signpost" pages of your journal to record important passages that will deepen your understanding of the novel. Be prepared to share your observations during our Grand Conversation tomorrow. Remember, your Reading Journal is part of your Reading grade.
- Please make sure you have shared your "Emotion" narrative with me.
- Complete lesson 9 a and 9b tonight.
- Your first Scholars Speak essay is due on Monday. The directions were sent home today. The first topic is to freeze a moment in time and tell it in 2-3 paragraphs. Then you will present your "moment" orally next week.
Our MANDATORY Parent Information Meetings for our April Catalina trip are on January 14th and 15th (next Wednesday and Thursday.) Please plan to attend ONE of these valuable meetings if you'd like your student to attend the Catalina trip.
