Miss Warnke: In class this week we will be starting to discuss the format and guidelines for a research paper. We will continue reading our lit circle books; our group discussions will be on Tuesday. We will also be reviewing point of view and the purpose of using different points of view in our writing. J

Mrs. Allen: We will be working hard on our Name Research Projects. Students will be writing the body of their papers this week. Please ask to see their writing and help with any spelling, punctuation, etc. This week we will also be working on Teenbiz (2 lessons) and Moby Max. These websites provide practice for language and reading skills.



Ms. Naze: Students are revising their research paper and adding their conclusion. It would be great if you could look it over with them to check content and editing. Two lessons need to be completed in TeenBiz and we are doing 10 min daily of Moby Max for grammar practice.
