Good morning everyone.  Happy Monday. I know how much you LOVE Mondays.  I sent you an email last night with specific details on your lit. circle work. Please make sure you read directions carefully.

1.  DUE TODAY:  Lit. circles (check last night's email)

2.  Writing assignment DUE WEDNESDAY by 3:00pm
PART 1:  Clink on the link below and read the article "How Well Do You know You".  Take the quiz to figure out if you are an eagle, parrot, dove, or owl  (I am an eagle😃).  Once you have completed the quiz and read the article, write me a paragraph about how you fly through life as a __________.  Use some the character traits from the quiz in your paragraph.

PART 2:  Scroll all the way to the end of the article to Continue the Learning journey.   Read the second activity about Aesop's Fables.  Use the link to find the list of fables (they are short and interesting).  Read at least 4 or 5 of the fables before you write your own.  

When you hand this in on your google document, make sure you label part 1 and part 2, and name your document YOUR NAME: Fable or whatever bird you are

If you finish before Wednesday at 3:00pm, you can hand it in to me, but make sure you edit it 20x before hitting send.  If you don't receive a score, it means I didn't approve it.

Have a great day.

Ms. S

PS.  Mrs. Washburne is assigned to me for support.   If you have any questions or need help with editing, you can reach out to her as well as me.
