8ELA-We were very busy today peer editing our stories.  We looked for figurative language/literary devices, a Collins-style sentence, character and setting details, and mood.  Of course, we want our stories to match our photos.  We gave feedback to our classmates and spent a small bit of time revising and editing for ourselves after the reviews.  We then shifted to Reading Class.  HOMEWORK:  SPELLING UNIT 9, ADJECTIVES (ONE PAGE), SECOND DRAFT OF OUR GREAT STORY (PAGE ONE).  JOURNALS DUE FRIDAY.

8SS-We worked on questions about Egyptian Religion.  We can find the answers and a better understanding from the textbook, the "Eye of Horus" myth, and the website www.pbs.org/empires/egypt.  HOMEWORK:  EGYPTIAN RELIGION Q 1-7.

7SS-We heard from two presenters on Weekly Update today.  I handed out permission forms for a select number of students and would like them back by Friday.  We started learning about Climate and Weather.  NO HOMEWORK.

Report Cards were distributed yesterday.  We ask that everyone return the conference forms even if you won't be coming in for a visit.  Remember that all teachers are available.
