A little more time…

Friends, one of the messages I received at conferences is that you’re feeling a little overwhelmed and need a little time and space to work and catch up. I get that! We have a long list of goals we’re working on right now. Use this time wisely to accomplish those goals.

Summative Assessment in NoRedInk coming!

Ok, friends, many of you have been working hard in NoRedInk. Many of you showed great progress on the Basic Commas and Major Topics Growth Quizzes. I’ve identified some areas for extra practice, and you can always practice more in the areas of your choice.

We will begin focusing more on active vs. passive voice and citing sources, but we won’t give up our work on commas, semicolons, parts of speech, and complete sentences.

At the end of this month, you will have a summative assessment in NoRedInk, which will allow you to show exactly how far you’ve come so far this year! Please complete all of the assignments by 11/22 so that you’re prepared for the summative assessment when we return from Thanksgiving.

If you have any questions or need any extra help, do not hesitate to ask!
