Reading Tally and Words, Words, Words Finale
Get it? Tally and finale? Rhyme? See how easy it is?
Anyway, enough of my dorkiness. Today we're starting our Book Buzz reading tally. Basically, I need to see which books you've chosen and where you are in the reading of these books. So, every class for the next week or so, I'm going to ask you how far you've read in whichever book you're reading. You should be finishing these books by the end of next week so that we can get ready to complete the Book Buzz common assessment.
As for Words, Words, Words, this is the last week to work on them in class. Of course, I am available Thursday after school if you need additional time and/ or help with your essays. Otherwise, I should have your final copy and all of your rough drafts and graphic organizers by the end of class on Thursday.
Just a note: Quarter one ends on Halloween. Spooky, eh? Make sure that you're where you should be in terms of completing missed assignments and such by that date or else scary things could happen. Muah haha.
