January 4-8

Welcome Back!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful winter break! Hopefully, everyone is rested and ready to finish off our second quarter.

On a side note... I am going to need to be gone a few days this week to attend to some of my family's needs. I just wanted you to have a heads up, so that you'll understand if my responses to emails or phone calls are not very prompt.

What Are We Working On This week?

Reader's Workshop: We're working on comparing/contrasting in text and we will be learning about the genre of myths.
