Tuesday: Language Arts Pretest- Basic Elements of Writing, Proofreading and Editing and Writing
Wednesday: Discuss out resident author, Caren Stelson, and her recent nomination for the National Book Award! Students were among the first people to hear a chapter from her new book, Sachiko. Caren is a dear friend of mine, and has offered to work with our class to talk about writing her book and the nonfiction book that she has written. Students will even have the opportunity to go to the book release, which will take place in early October if they are interested!
We will also go to the media center today.
Thursday: Read Sadako, and create paper cranes.
