No class this week due to Terranova testing. Students who elected to make additional changes to their writing assignment must have it turned into my mailbox by Friday. The second round of Escribir Repaso edits have all been passed back so the final writing is due this week, IN MY MAILBOX, EVEN THOUGH WE DON'T HAVE CLASS. Students should make the recommended edits and type the final paragraph. Attach (or draw) a picture (in color) of the person you described at the top of your 8 1/2 x11" paper. Most students in grade 6 have already turned the assignment in.
For next week - a cultural assignment for Día de los muertos will be handed out in class on Friday. You can also print the assignment on cardstock by clicking on the link above^. Students in grade 6 will design a mini barrilete, which is due in class on October 27th. Draw a picture of someone important who has died: a family member or even a special Saint. Decorate the barrilete and attach at least one kite tail at the bottom or on each side.
