December 18th - December 22nd Then, VACATION!
Our spelling and vocabulary quiz is Monday because of last week's snow day. We'll also finish work on fact and opinion in persuasion and do vocab Lesson 12 pretest. Tuesday, we'll try a short persuasive writing piece and Wednesday is our regular reading day. On Thursday, we'll have the Lesson 12 quiz and I'm going to show you the best advertisements of all time so that we can apply the 'ADAM' principle to them. On Friday, my friend Mr. Seabeck is coming in to show you slides of the very charitable work he does in Haiti.
