Happy May Day!

Today we will have D.E.A.R., examine a new quote, and work on our Creative Missions (due tomorrow!)


  • Grab your book

  • Find a comfortable place to sit where you won't bug anyone and they won't bug you

  • Read a book--don't just pretend to read

  • 20 minutes--enjoy it!

Quote of the Week:

"It's not easy telling your truths and stating your fears from when you were seven, 17, and a couple years ago. But I know at the end of the day, the music is not for me, it's for somebody else."

--Kendrick Lamar, rapper, writer, performer

Students can reflect on a short text and try to understand it through annotating, drawing, and writing.

Students can choose a book that fits their interests and is appropriately challenging.


READ for at least 20 minutes: a book, news articles, RAZ kids, movie reviews, music reviews, or get more ideas here.

Happy new week!
