homework and parent conferences

Homework for grade 7 tonight:  Prepare a 1 – 2 minute book talk for Wednesday.  This is a short talk in which you share the title, author, setting, conflict, basic plot, characters, and theme of your outside reading book.  You also need to have a visual component;  ie:  you bring in something that relates to your book – an object the character had with him, a copy of the book, et cetera.  You are not expected to spend hours making a poster or anything like that.  Keep it simple.


Also, as an FYI – parent teacher conference handouts were sent home with your children on either Friday or Monday.  Call the office to set up a conference, if you are interested.
