Welcome to Wednesday!

Today we will DEAR, do a video response journal, and work on Mission #2.


(20 min.)

  • Find a comfortable place to sit

  • Don’t bother anyone

  • If someone is bothering you, politely let them know

  • READ a book, don’t just pretend to read a book 🙃


1. Do Now: DEAR

2. Agenda/Announcements

Learning Goals:

Students can learn from the experiences of others.

Students can form conclusions based on first person research.

Students can choose a book that is challenging and engaging.

Students can reflect on their progress for the quarter and document it for their conferences.


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

See you tomorrow!
