Today in class students wrote an on-demand argumentative essay about poverty. They had the whole class period to write a five paragraph essay and try to persuade the reader to do something about the poverty issue around the world that we have been studying in class.

We are going to take these essays and begin to make revisions on them over the next week. Students will then turn this into their final writing piece.



  • Read at least 20 minutes to prepare for the book talk on Thursday, May 29. This is the last book talk for the year and it is FREE CHOICE! Remember that your book should be “just right” for you! Not too easy and not too hard. 


  • Bring your book to class tomorrow!
