Reading Homework: Reading logs are due each Monday
Writing Workshop: Students are going to prepare and teach a ten minute lesson as part of our EdCamp beginning with the first 12 of 51 students this Tuesday afternoon. This is a chance for students to choose and prepare something they are interested in and something that they think others might be interested in, as well. This is totally a choice project, although I have said no Minecraft. :) They will have 10 minutes to teach, and they will teach the same lesson two times in a row for two different small groups of students. Students not teaching will choose 4 sessions to attend and participate in. We will do another EdCamp soon, so that the next 12 students can teach. Everyone will get a turn to teach.If your child is teaching this Tuesday, they should practice at home.
Writing homework: Students are to write 10 minutes in their Writer's Notebooks on the topic of their choice. These are due each Wednesday.
