Reading Round Up
We started reading Obert Skye's novel Witherwood Reform School. So far, we have learned that Tobias and Charlotte Eggers have a horrible governess- a word which we discovered means "nanny". Stay tuned to see what happens next!
This week the students continued to work on their magazine article. They are gradually moving through the writing process. This is a piece that the students are spending a lot of time to craft and perfect.
We will continue to work on our article next week. The students should be finishing this writing piece within the next couple of weeks. I am so excited to see their finished article. They have worked so hard on this.
