Week 13 - 11/30/2015

Welcome back from Thanksgiving!  It's good to have the family circle back together again.  I've been thinking about what I could give you for the holiday season and it seems the best choice I could offer is personal choice.

You're already working on your independent reading book.  This week we start working on an independent reading assignment that will take us through till the end of the term.  

Meanwhile, we're still reading Hamlet and answering these prompts.   

We're just getting started on Poetry Out Loud, we're finishing our action letters (final draft), and we have a new vocabulary list, #9a.
