This month we will be focused on our literary analsyis essay. Students will read two texts, identify a common theme and evaluate evidence to support their thesis statements. We will also be starting our first class novel- The Crazy Lady by Jane Leslie Conly.
Learning Ally letters have been sent home. Please review and if there are any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.

SSR (silent sustained reading) will take place on a weekly basis in class. Students should have a book with them at all times. If they do not have their book, they will be required to choose a book from our extensive classroom library. Aside from reading in class, students should be reading at home for at least 20 minutes per day.
