Today in class we worked on our essay. Many students have moved beyond their first paragraph and are working on their body paragraphs, but I am now starting to check their thesis sentences and helping some students rework theirs so it is more concise.

Yesterday I was absent due to my husband being ill. I don’t think I’ve ever missed more than twice in one month but I feel like I haven’t seen the kids since I was ill 1 1/2 days last week. Unfortunately, I will be out next Wednesday for a training too.

We also spent some class time practicing our vocabulary match game that the students received from the substitute yesterday. This is a great study tool that all the students were given and told to keep to help them study.


Read at least 20 minutes to prepare for the historical fiction book talk on Monday, March 3.

Study for the vocabulary quiz on Friday.
