Good afternoon! A quick word about language arts next week:
We are still in the middle of revising our autobiographies. Hopefully students are learning that this can be a long process and may take several revisions. We hope to wrap the writing process up by Wednesday with editing. The autobiography will then become a part of the “Who Am I” poster. Students were given this assignment today with a due date of August 18. Attached is a copy of the poster explanation.
We will also be reading a few nonfiction texts as background preparation for our whole class novel, Seedfolks, Paul Fleischman. If you have not already purchased a copy of Seedfolks and are able, I recommend doing that within the next week. I hope to start the novel the week of August 17. They are available here on Amazon for $6.38.
Please let me know if you have any questions, and have a wonderful weekend!
