LIteracy

This week we completed a theme essay and took a quiz on Jack London's "To Build a Fire."  For the next couple of weeks we'll spend some time brushing up on grammar skills and participating in a book club. Although grammar practice is covered in writing mini-lessons and individual writing, it's worthwhile to review and expose all to the basics they may not be incorporating into their pieces. Today we practiced diagramming simple sentences and will work with more complex sentences next week.
