Zombie Haiku Contest:
Contest! Extravagant (small, inexpensive) Prizes and Extra Credit

As you're brainstorming about Halloween, keep in mind that we will give extra credit to any student who shows us/sends us a picture of their book character costume!

Targets for Today:

I can demonstrate my spelling expertise with "barely/barley" and "hear/here".

I can collect evidence from The Outsiders for a future argument essay.

Today’s  Agenda:

Silent Reading.

Spelling test!! Put everything under your desk and remember- no talking!

Open up to page 144 and put a bookmark there. We will pick up our reading there, but just to mix things up... let's watch the rumble instead of listening to it!

Now back to page 144!!

So what do you think? Is it better to know that someone is going to die, or does that make it harder?

If You Were Absent:

Turn in Quiz of the Week #6 and come in to take the spelling test. Catch up on your reading in The Outsiders and start looking for a Book of the Month for November (Fantasy or Science Fiction).
