Students need to continue writing in their home writer's notebook.  As a reminder, this is a place to record thoughts, ideas, pondering, wondering, observations, etc. They need to write in it 2 times a week for 20 minutes each time, which should consist of a page. They may also type their entries, but the typed pages must be 12 point font, and cut neatly and glued or taped into the notebook.  The next due date is Friday, May 13.  They should have 15 more entries for a total of 60 entries.
  
I will put all homework assignments on my calendar at the bottom of the page. Please check it daily.
