Happy February!

Announcements and Reminders: 
1.  Do not forget to turn in or finish your January Book of the Month assignment.   They were due last Friday.
I am still in the process of grading them, so many of you you have the opportunity to finish or revise before I post the grade.  Those of you whose grades are already posted may still finish and revise, but please do that right away.  If you don't know how to do it, try reading the directions.  Also, look at the examples.   

2.  The February Book Assessment is on Nonfiction.  
We will go to the media center on Wednesday.
