Week of Feb. 28,2012

Dear Parents,
This week we will resume our spelling word sorts.

Below is our biography timeline to help manage your time:

Week of February 27 through March 2--In class, we will begin writing our essay; this will be written in complete biography format. We will have opportunities to peer edit and teacher conference throughout the week, as well as designated times to begin typing completed essays. If you have gathered plenty of good information on your graphic organizer, writing your essay will be relatively easy! At home, you should begin planning your costume and gathering necessary items.

Week of March 5 through March 8--In class we will be composing our speeches based on the information in our essays and will have plenty of opportunities to practice our speeches to aid in memorization. At home, you should be gathering the final items for your costume.

March 9--the BIG day! Students MUST come to school dressed in their costume and be ready to present their MEMORIZED speech in the bus drive for other MDE students.
*Grading: Students will receive a grade on the following items:
-completed reading of their book
-completed graphic organizer (due February 27)
-completed essay (due March 5)
-completed and memorized speech (due March 9)
-completed costume (due March 9)

Just a reminder, if your child will be absent March 9 they MUST still complete their speech in their respective costume BEFORE the due date. Please let me know your plans so that I may plan accordingly. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email your questions. Thank you.
