Today we had the pleasure of sitting quietly and reading. Whew. I know you are all busy playing sports, cleaning your rooms, and chatting with friends via text, so reading time may be limited in your life. I hope this time can give you a love for literacy. As for me, I love delving in to a good book; of course, I would love to add a fireplace and a steaming cup of hot chocolate, but they are harder to find in the school than in my imagination.
(Mmmmm. I'm just thinking about fire and chocolate....)
But I digress.
You also have a homework assignment due on Wednesday for "The Bet" by Anton Chekov. If you weren't here yesterday, we read it out loud from our short story packets. The HOMEWORK is to choose vocabulary words again, but this time from "The Bet".
(Think of me whilst I painstakingly create NYS required Student Learning Objective spreadsheets. Ughhh. It is a good thing that I love you students so much, otherwise I might go find a different job with more pay and fewer hoops to jump through.)
**Don't forget to check out Mygradebook.com! (mcoller6) Your writing assignment grades have been added. Keep in mind that I graded for WORD CHOICE and, as always, for spelling.
Have a great weekend!!
