First Unit Reading

Outside reading for the first unit / marking period is adventure fiction.  Students need to choose an adventure fiction book (from home, from my shelf, from the library) and begin reading it.  They should have read at least 10 pages by Tuesday's class.  This book will need to be brought to class every day, and brought home every night, so that students always have it on hand to read.  Assignments related to the book will be posted online and at school.  The first assignment, due in about two weeks, will be to write a letter to me about the book, reflecting where the student is at that moment.  By then, he or she should be about one third of the way through the book.

New School Year

Welcome to the new year!

Yesterday's homework was to write a letter to me, using proper business letter format (see page 7 of assignment book), introducing yourself to me.

Tonight's homework is to read my class information sheet with your parent or guardian, and ask him or her to fill out the section at the bottom.  Remember that you need to have the whole packet for class, but if your parents want a copy, I will gladly provide it.
