The Ticehurst/Flint Newsletter

The Week of October 28-November 1

Personal Narrative Planning & Editing Pages...

...have been added to my website! Please take a moment to check them out using the link at the bottom of this newsletter. There is a lot there, but it should all be very useful to you at home. Remember, practice makes perfect :-) I have also added a page about the writing process and the traits of writing!


Enjoy!

  • Look for Tuesday Folders on Tuesdays :-) filled with lots of important papers and information!
  • Homework will go out each week on Friday, and be turned in on Thursday of the following week. ELAR homework grades are based off of completion!!!
