Had lots of fun today spilling the news about the pregnancy on our team! Although many students believed it to be Mr. Ferriter (he was pretty convincing), the correct answer was me! I am pregnant and due in the middle of March. The kids were so sweet and congratulatory. I truly appreciate it and will keep everyone in loop as I make plans for this year.
Next week is a big week as we wrap up grades for quarter one. It’s amazing how quickly time flies. Students will be turning in their Chapter 14 writing assignments on Tuesday. Students, please be sure you bring all of your drafts along with the final. I am attaching an explanation of the formatting that is expected with this essay. We will also continue our introduction to nonfiction and text structures, preparing for an assessment on Friday. This assessment grade will be the first grade on quarter two. Lastly, the final notebook check of the quarter will be Friday. I will be checking for organization and completed assignments.
My wiki is updated with next week’s schedule and homework. Have a wonderful weekend!
