*Short week: Staff Development Day: no school for students Fri.

Lit students turned in their Writers NBs today, 76 entries.
Tomorrow is their last day to work on their 2nd lit circle projects, group presentations are Wed. They have had considerable more time this time to prepare, we'll see how the results turn out!
ALL Lloyd Alexander books need to be turned in Wed.!
Thursday and Friday is a synthesis individual project comparing all 3 books read. Whew: that was a long unit! I may ask the kids how they'd like to celebrate the end of the author study.
Other concentrations this week are continuing grammar, and last week was work with metaphors and similes.
