Happy week before break, it's finally beginning to look and feel like winter out there. :)

Thank you to the many parents who came with us on Friday to see The Giver.  It was better than I thought it would be based on the reviews that I had read, yet there were many changes that the kiddos did not like.

Due to our presentations, we will be postponing vocab #7 until after break.  Make sure that you have them done for that Wednesday we return.

We will be taking the pre-test for the spelling bee today.

L2-finishing presentations and watching A Christmas Carol

L3- finishing our debate about sports and discussing Junior Scholastic article.  We will be working on some grammar this week also.

Writer's Notebook entries: 31 by 12/22.  You can get ahead by writing over break also.  Remember that these entries need to be 20 minutes of WRITING per entry not thinking and then jotting down a few sentences.  Remember it can be an ongoing story, thoughts, ideas, ponderings, etc.
