Academic Habits: Today students had the final full day in class to work on their book report. They may have time tomorrow after the Westing Game test.
I told students that they should think about making a cheat sheet for the test. While the books will be available for the majority of the test, looking through books can take up a lot of time. I suggested that students write things down such as: each characters occupation, specific quotes and who said it, locations of certain events (especially at the end), and names of characters.
Book report and Reading Log are due FRIDAY. They are two separate test grades. We have had a few weeks on the reading log and 3 full days in class on the book report.
Language Arts: We finished the story of Lemon Brown and began a worksheet that will be taken up along with others later.
