Hello Everyone,

Today we had an eventful day in class.

I began working with small groups, which will happen in a four-day rotation. Students are discussing the article that they read on Tuesday about the electoral college vs. the popular vote in the United States.

Students took their first Social Studies Quiz which was on Chapter Three. They were able to use their books and their notes.

Students continued their memoir study by beginning to read The Great Rat Hunt by Laurence Yep. We discussed how a memoir is different from an autobiography. Students are also collecting details to find the main idea of the story.

For follow up at home, feel free to review the handout that students received in class!
