You're Kind of a Big Deal
We are now going to focus on writing the essay for our president report. Tomorrow students will begin working on a thesis statement and introductory paragraph. They will have another lesson on Monday to get them rolling. The rough draft for the written report is due May 20. The final draft will be typed in Google classroom at school and at home.
We are finishing up chapter nine in math and will review and then test on that next week.
We are down to Five rehearsals left for our play. It's coming together but work at home is still a must.
