    Due 1/12/18:  Label the assignment “Lesson 1” and complete the multiple choice and short answer sections (not the discussion questions) in your notebook.  Read E. Butler’s “The Condensed Wealth of Nations” introduction and Book 1.  Answer the 4 corresponding questions provided in class and file in your notebook.  Make plans to obtain the book “Whatever Happened to Penny Candy” and begin reading through p. 106.  A two page typed summary is due February 16.  It would be of benefit to read over the questions for Lesson 2 prior to class.

    There is no advanced preparation for class on the first Friday.  Please bring your book to class (one per family is fine).  You will need a separate notebook or notebook tab for the class.  We will have a few additional readings to support the text chosen.  Our first additional reading is “Whatever Happened to Penny Candy” by Richard Maybury.  I know of two copies (Garretts, Cramptons), and my copy is arriving shortly (the delivery date has been delayed).  I believe the Moellers are ordering as well.  You may pass the books among students as you will not need it as a text to study.  Just check with the book owners…

    7th-8th literature

    We had a good first meeting of class on Friday. I told the students that the questions were in order of the reading. This is generally the case; however, this week, question #2 is found before question #1’s answer. Please encourage your student to do the vocabulary before the reading. It would be a good idea to review past vocabulary each week as well. The words are in our readings and it helps to be familiar with the definitions as we read. Also, please encourage your student not to get behind in the reading. It makes it difficult to catch up. There are audio recordings available (see the Facebook post…

    Heads up, Parents.  You may want to supervise the readings of King Arthur this week.  There are some themes that are more mature. We have a quiz in class on Friday.  Each student received a review sheet last week.  They have done a great job with their readings thus far!

    The students should have completed reading Rolf and the Viking Bow and be prepared for a quiz.  Questions will come from the review page, study guides, and class discussions.   3/4 lit has 15 questions at 2 points each.  5/6 has 30 questions worth 1 point each.  There are bonus questions.  Please have students bring their binders tomorrow and place them in the orange crate labeled “3/4, 5/6 Lit” immediately AFTER their lit class.  It is my plan to use my lunch break time to compile the score for the book.  I can hopefully check the quiz and the study guides during that time and have them ready to return…
