Week of January 17-19
Seems strange starting a new week on Wednesday, but so grateful that school was cancelled on Tuesday. It was a blessing that everyone got to stay home, stay safe and stay warm.
This week we are going to try to finish up with commas in English. We will need to review and take a test--I think the test will be Tuesday of next week. We should be ready by then.
In literature we will finish up with "The Ransom of Red Chief". Students will be working on setting and irony before their final project: A mini-book written from Red Chief's point of view with advice for children on how to survive a kidnapping in 5 easy steps. This will be written in the same humorous vein as the short story itself. It will be based on some of the crazy things that Red Chief himself did to get his "captors" to return him to his parents.
For a short week, it will be a busy one! Don't forget--class pictures are on Thursday!
