Fri., March 13th

Notes about how the school-closure will affect our classes:

*We will pick up where we leave off today. Therefore, the Reading Record #21 will be due, ideally on Wed., April 1st. However, if you need an extension on this due date, I will work with you. Today we are working hard on our Argumentative Essay #2 (student chosen topic), knowing that when we return, we will pick up where you left off and finish them. Ideally, again, on Wed., April 1st you will work for the block period and be able to turn it in on Thursday, 2nd, but we will check in together when I see you next.

*I am doing book talks today for a Book Group that will begin when we return. Please make sure when you come back, that you are eligible to check-out a book from our school library. (You can check out up-to-three books, so make sure you have one opening for this!)

Word puzzle, expires at the end of Thurs. Solve this for CMS cash: A word fragment is given, and you must think of an English word that contains the fragment — that is, you must form a word by adding letters to the beginning and/or the end of the fragment. You may not add letters to the middle of the fragment, nor may you rearrange the letters given.
