I hope you all have a fabulous winter break, full of time together, fun, and relaxation. 

For anyone interested, January 1 at 8pm on PBS channel 6, there will be an airing of the Sherlock BBC special "The Abominable Bride".

This week we are finishing the reading portion of  our short stories unit.

Monday: Read Sherlock Holmes "The Adventure of the Copper Beeches", and answer questions.
Tuesday: Discuss "The Adventure of the Copper Beeches" and complete plot diagram. Choose a scene to share as a drama or Reader's Theatre.
Wednesday: Grammar on comma placement
Thursday: Perform dramas or Reader's Theatre 
Friday: No School. Winter break begins.

All missing assignments for the short story unit are due this Thursday, December 17. This is the end of the semester.
I will put all homework assignments on my calendar at the bottom of the page. Please check it daily.
