Happy rainy weird warm Sunday!  
I am home and resting, and wanted to give you an idea of what to expect this week in classwork/homework/etc. It is a joy to have Mrs. Stuver back at STM during this time! She and Mrs. Meehan are 100% on top of things in the classroom, and while I am out Mrs. Stuver will be teaching your students in the classes I teach: 
Reading 7: The students will be reading and completing daily page assignments and written work for their novel, The Seventh Most Important Thing, by Shelley Pearsall. This is a great book, and a teacher recorded reading the entire book at:
The neatest thing about this book is that it is a true-ish/fictionalized  story about a piece of art that was created in DC and is currently on view at the Smithsonian American Art Museum. 
The Monkey's Paw trial was hilarious and engaging. The students worked so hard and they did a great job. I have made a Google Slideshow with their video clips that I will share with their teachers. 
Reading 6: The students are reading two challenging novels during this time. The Kestrels group is reading The Bronze Bow by Elizabeth George Speare, if you would like a free video audiobook and the  Bluebirds group is reading Drums, Girls, and Dangerous Pie by Jordan Sonnenblick. is a free video audiobook. There are daily page reading assignments and a reading schedule. 
LA 6: The students will be completing the Pronouns unit between this week and next week. Please be sure you're aware that there is extra credit available by completing the Pronouns Challenge on pg. 52 in the Voyages textbook. 
Religion: The class will begin Chapter 7 Jacob is Chosen By God
When I can, I'll be updating older assignments and catching up with missing student work, particularly with the trimester quickly coming to an end. I love and appreciate all of your support and prayers more than words can say! Thank you! 
Mrs. Morgan
