Homework

Please help your student think of a book that they can focus on this week to practice "Opinion Writing" it does not have to be a long book. It can be a picture book. They just need to know the story well enough to have an opinion about it. It is heartwarming, cute, scary, funny, interesting etc. They need to bring this book to school (if it is not already at school as they can also use one of our books from the school library).

As soon as you are able. Please turn in your typed Biography report. We can assemble them here at school.
