Taking Care of Business Wednesday


Academic Business Time  Due to the fact that there are various projects and assignments that we have been working on that are due soon, I would like to give you some structured time today to work on them. You have a choice today with regards to focus on, but I would prioritize them as follows: 
  1. Writer's Workout #1: Analyze Character Traits
  2. Character Traits in "Eleven"
  3. Comparing Texts - 'Eleven' / 'Who's the New Kid?'
Each of these assignments can be found in your Language Arts Google Classroom and are due and must be 'turned in' by Friday, September 4.
 
Independent Literacy Time  If you have completed and 'turned in' each of the assignments above, you may use this time to do any of the following: take an Accelerated Reader quiz, make a Digital Reading Log entry, read a Newsela article, or read from your A.R. book.

Homework  (1.) Complete the assignments listed above by this Friday, September 4. (2.) Read your A.R. book at home for at least 30 minutes and, if you choose, make a reading log entry using the Digital Reading Log. (Remember you must have made at least two entries by the end of the week.)
