Homework for 12-17-08

I would like for the students to continue working on their rough drafts for the Young Authors Contest. As stated before this rough draft is due on Friday. If your child would like to turn in a story web, outline, or any other brain storming evidence for the rough draft, that would be fine. Also I would like for your child to do some practice with the triangle flash cards that were sent home earlier in the year. Hope to see you at the assembly on Friday.
