No homework for Tuesday June 9th

1) Please talk to your parents about your plans for your Chromebook this summer. If you have paid the insurance, you may take it for the summer, or leave it at school. If you choose to leave it at school, please bring your charger and bag in tomorrow so everything is together in one place.

2) Yearbooks are in! I'm sorry I didn't pass them out at the end of the day. If you didn't order one but would like one, bring $20 to the office, they have extras.

1) Please finish your book report in a Google Doc. (You will share with me on Monday) Make sure that your document has your name on it and a title. Here are some things to double check. 

  • Academic fonts
  • Underline the book title and capitalize names!! (as well as grammar and other punctuation)
  • Incorporate answers into interesting sentences
  • Transitions between ideas, parts of the report, and good beginning/ending
  • NO Ellipses, Parentheses, all CAPS WORDS
  • Sentences structure (run-ons, fragments, sentences starting with AND, BECAUSE, ALSO)
  • Work on word choice (Especially main character, don’t keep saying their name)
  • Indent your paragraphs
2) Plan your 10 minute lesson! You can teach the class a skill or share a story or talent. It's up to you!

Have a great weekend! 

PARENTS - Students will be bringing home items over the last few days. Please send your student to school with a shopping bag (or the bag I provided) so that they are able to easily bring items home. I hate to see school supplies go to waste!
