Reading Project & Homework

Independent Reading projects should be halfway done, since we are halfway through the marking period.  Specifically, students should have completed the reading of their books, and be starting to think about their essays, which we will begin at the end of this week or the start of next week.  Most students are nearly or completely finished their books, but in looking around the room today, I noticed that even though they had a three weeks and a 5 day weekend, some students had still read fewer than 100 pages in their books.  Please check in to make sure your son/daughter is on track to have the book finished in the next few days.
There is no homework, especially since some kids still need reading time. 
The only exception is a few students in Block 4 who had their vocabulary work from the other day returned and had to re-do a portion of it that had not been understood.
