We are working on our Night of the Notables bio-riddles and learning centers this week.  Both are due by the end of the week.  Understanding that learning centers are big and cumbersome, students don't have to bring it in until Friday if they choose.  I would like to see it at least a few times before Jan. 29 to make sure that progress is being made.  We will also be talking about costumes this week just to touch base and make sure that everyone is moving in the right direction with their costumes.  Please remember that students need to be to school by 6pm on Tuesday, January 29 so that we can start promptly at 6:30pm.  They can come in costume or get dressed here, whichever is easier for them (and you) :).   Students also need to be writing in their Writer’s Notebooks.  They need to write three times a week for 20 minutes each time. This is a place to record thoughts, ideas, pondering, wondering, observations, etc.  They need to have 58 entries by this Sunday.

Thank you all for the wonderfully thoughtful gifts during the holidays.  I appreciate your thinking of me. :)
