Due to student needs, the quiz on capitalization will be moved to Monday, 11/19/2018. 

On Friday, 11/16, I will be checking the 40 book challenge to see progress made during marking period one. 
If students have been tracking the books they have read and writing their 1-2 paragraph responses to each book, they should not have to do anything to prepare for this, except to make sure their binders are present in class. 

The sadlier unit 3 test will remain on Friday, 11/16/18. Students have received a hard copy of the words, which we have reviewed in class, and have had several days of class time to work on their online activities. They can log in using sadlierconnect.com 

We will have one final day of class time on Thursday for students to work on their persuasive essay review projects with assistance or using the time for peer editing before it is collected on Friday. 

Just a reminder that if any student needs assistance with any homework, studying, etc, I am available during recess on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays upon request.
