Today in class the students wrote to their pen-pals in Ecuador or Zambia. The students have permission slips and a brief letter explaining the program that they are bringing home today. I will not be able to mail a letter unless the form is signed. I think they will benefit from this program and learning about students in another country.

Students that finished worked on revising their narrative drafts, completing their No Red Ink assignment, reading a book, or working on their October essay.

Tomorrow we have library day with Mrs. Butler! Students that have books checked out need to bring them back for renewal or check-in.
