Ask your child to tell you what Praiseworthy did when the road agents took possession of Aunt Arabella's photograph.

Character Can Book Report

Students read a Newberry Award Winning book, create a character can, and present a summary to the class. Detailed information is on Edmodo. It is due on Tuesday, May 24.

Students will have time in class to write the written portion this week. They may complete it at home, if needed. Students should practice the presentation portion at home.
