*This project is due on June 9. Most of the components of this project will be worked on and completed in school, if your child uses his or her time wisely. At this time of year, I need to keep the students busy and working. We will work up to the end of the year!

  • Research Organizers were collected last week. We will start to work on Summary/Essay and Historical Fiction Picture Books this week in class.
  • Famous Quotes were due last week. I will print them out for students who finished them.
