This week students will be reading Junior Scholastic, a current events magazine,  and completing a quiz on the articles (they can use their magazines), and a writing assignment around two articles in the magazine on people pursuing their dreams.

Students should be working on their Writer's Notebooks at home.  This is a place to record thoughts, ideas, pondering, wondering, observations, etc. They need to write in it 2 times a week for 10 minutes (Period 5), which should consist of at least half a page, or 20 minutes (Period 6), which should consist of a page, each time. The next due date is Thursday, May 7.  They should have 15 more entries for a total of 60 entries.

We will also be focusing this semester on grammar.  We will begin each day with Daily Oral Language and every Wednesday will be a grammar lesson. This week we will look at alliteration.
I will put all homework assignments on my calendar at the bottom of the page. Please check it daily. If you cannot see the calendar, have your child look at their Google calendars as I have shared my assignment calendar with them.
