Fri March 29

ALL Blocks:

  • Re-read over the worksheet titled “Response to Literature”
  • Students were to complete “Paragraph 3” at the bottom of the page on a sheet of notebook paper

Homework-  All classes had at least 30 minutes to complete the paragraph in class after I explained what they were writing. All students should have finished it in class as it was only one paragraph. If a student did not use their time wisely or they were absent, this needs to be made up so the student is not behind on Monday after the break.

Have a restful Spring Break!!! 🙂
