Hello students. All work over the break will not be scored nor is it mandatory, therefore I cannot reasonably expect for you to continue working on the essay at this time.
I would like students to do the following over the break, if possible:
- Read you Fun Book, pick up another and keep going. Keep your journal work so you can use them later for points. If you don’t read your Fun Book or keep the journal, you’ll have time to do it later in class.
- Continue to explore poetry, especially from your author. Try finding one poem a day and reading it to your family members. Talk about the poem for a five minutes. What was the poem’s theme? Who was the narrator?
- Keep in contact with each other. Let’s try and be positive and help each other wherever we can. Your experience during this difficult time may be easier than another student; have some empathy for the struggle that others are going through.
- Don’t forget, I care about each of you and hope that you and your families are staying safe. We’ll make it through this, though it may be difficult.
