We will continue reading our Avi books.  The students are expected to read two of the in-class novels plus one more of their choice by Avi.  This way we can have a well informed discussion about our observations of his writing techniques and style.  We will also continue with our writing elaboration activities.

We will have our Writer's Notebook check tomorrow, students should have at least 61 entries for this check.

Students should be writing in their Writer's Notebooks for at least 20 minutes each time three days a week.  This is a place to record thoughts, ideas, ponderings, stories, poems,etc.  They should have 64 entries by this Sunday.

We won't be switching Thursday due to our shortened day.
