Note to parents: Please know the score ultimately does not reflect your child's skill in identifying verbals, but instead how well one can toss a piece of paper in a hamper! Cotunas and Blankinships might should be worried!

For Parents:

Starting To Kill a Mocking BIrd

This week we will be reading chapters 1-8 of To Kill A Mockingbird. Each chapter has discussion questions that must be answered in complete, thoughtful sentences. A nice way to break down the work is to do two chapters and corresponding questions each day.

In class today we discussed unreliable narrators. Students will be working on a creative writing assignment writing from the point of view of a well known villain. The villain will be trying to portray himself as a likable character to the readers. A great example of this is The True Story of the Three Little Pigs.

Extra Copies of TKAM

I have about 10 extra copies of To Kill a Mockingbird in case you would like your own copy to read. A truck load of mass market versions were donated to the store and Jim gave me the extras. Just text if you would like me to send one home with your child next week.

Water Fund

We have a small refrigerator in the bonus room. During Writing Boot Camp drinks were available to students. If you would like to donate a few dollars or a case of water, we will again keep that stocked for class. Please do not feel obligated!

Please pray for Kristi Walston as she has traveled back to Wisconsin to be with her dad and step mother upon the further decline in her step mother's health.
