Media Center
We will not have reading time today.  
Get ready to go to the Media Center.
Leave your backpack here.
Take your planner.
Be quiet in the halls.
     Walk down the stairs,
          turn right,
               turn left into the media center,
                    find a seat and be ready to be polite and attentive.

Mrs. Jones will introduce using the media center, where to find different sorts of books, and will present some book talks.  You may have time to check out a book.

Computer Lab to take the SRI
After you are done with the media center, you will go to the Computer Writing Lab 211.
Your computer number is the folder number where you keep your composition book.
Receive a handout with instructions for taking the SRI (Scholastic Reading Inventory).

Take the test seriously, and take the time you need for it, but

if you finish early, you may go to and play grammar games there: Major Capitals, Comma Chameleon, Noun Explorer, Adjective Adventure, or  Verbs in Space.
