Welcome to your first early out day. Our periods are shorter, but we have just as much to get done.
We will read at the bell. Get your book ready.
Take a look at the small white board up front. it has a list of all the things you should have done by now, no matter when you joined my class. If you haven't completed any of those things you need to get caught up. The dates next to some tell you which blog post will help you with it.
Each of these things will be going into my gradebook this weekend. Make sure you get credit by having them done.
1. READ: this article about J.K. Rowling's new project.
2. Summarize it in your Writer's Notebook.
3. Put the summary about this article ABOVE the one you wrote yesterday and make sure you have a date on both.
