Taking Care of Business Time  Friendly reminder: Tomorrow is the last day of your 2nd quarter of middle school! It's the last the day to turn in missing or incomplete assignments. It's the last day to take A.R. tests and earn points towards your reading goal. It's the last day to do whatever needs to be done to get your grades up.

You may use this portion of class today to silent read and take A.R. tests. You may also use this time to review your grades and assignments on School Loop and figure how to dedicate your energy during these last moments of the 2nd quarter. Additionally, consider messaging teachers if you have questions or need to inform them of anything related to your assignments or grades.  
Homework  (1.) 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 day Friday.)  (2.) Tomorrow, Friday, December 18, is the last day of the quarter and the following assignments must be completed and 'turned in' in order to have a chance to receive full credit: Sound Devices in Poetry, Personification in Poetry, Tone and Word Choice in Poetry, and "Oranges" - Sensory Details.
