What's happening in class?

I hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful Sunday weather!

***Speeches are finished! :)

***Students did a very nice job on their persuasive speeches! I thoroughly enjoyed listening to all the presentations! Well done!

The week of May 5th-May 9th in L.A. will be a combo. week. Students will be working on a variety of tasks throughout the week:

Wordskills unit 16 will be introduced on Monday and due on Friday.

On Tuesday, students will be developing a creative color story to be shared in class on Wednesday.

On Thursday, we will catch up on current events through reading and discussing SCOPE magazine in class.

In reading, students will begin a three week unit on poetry. We will be reading, analyzing and writing a variety of poems and the unit will culminate with students developing a self-selected theme portfolio. I can already see the creative wheels turning...................:)

Here's to a great week!
