This Week in Odyssey Writing:
We are now in the 2nd 6 weeks! We are planning to spend approximately 5 weeks with expository writing. This will include learning what expository entails, selecting a topic, pre-writing, drafting, conferencing, revising, editing, and publishing. We have already read an expository mentor text as a class.
-For grammar this week, we are focusing on types of sentences: simple, compound, and complex. 
-I am grading personal narratives. Thanks for your patience!
-Encourage students to keep up with their journals, please! This will be a major grade each 6 weeks. 

-Please also bring an empty, rinsed food can if possible as well. This will be for our affirmation cans. Feel free to bring extra cans for those who cannot bring one. We still need 30 more cans!

Curriculum Enrichment (my 1st period class only) will be reading The Book Thief and working on Compass Learning.
