Week of 10/7 - 10/11


This week we will be reviewing the unit on prepositions, then focusing on review of capitalization and punctuation rules. Additionally, we move ahead to Unit 4 of vocabulary and roots. Each day, I will be asking if you have any questions about the expectations for the Out of My Mind Take Home Exam. I am happy to clarify anything for you, but you must ASK. For this exam, be sure you provide EVIDENCE FROM THE BOOK for your answers, just as you did for your Watsons essay.
