February 8

Conferences were February 5 and 7.  It was wonderful talking to so many parents!  If you missed conferences, don’t worry!  You can check in anytime though email.  I will be happy to answer any of your questions!

In writing we started a poetry unit.  Students will need to keep a writer’s notebook. They will be given 100 points (formative) for a complete notebook that is dated, titled, and includes an example or two of each type of poem.  At the end of the unit, they must also turn in a poetry book with their seven best poems.  This will be 100 points for a summative grade.
