Reading: Today was a discussion day in Literature Circles.
Writing: Students continued to work on their novel being written and typed at docs.mrhowd.com. Many students are ahead of schedule. Congratulations to Shayla, the first student to reach 1,000 words! Some students, however, are behind schedule and will need to work more carefully to reach their word count goal. Ask your student what their word count goal is and how many words they have written so far. This piece is due March 27. Click here for further details.
