Welcome back after a wonderful, fun-filled weekend of celebrating the Irish! This week we will have lots to work on for Trimester 3. Please look over and discuss the pros and cons of your child's report card. Please sign and return the envelope to school on Tuesday. Congratulations to Jake Roney and Grace Carmody for winning 2nd and 3rd place in St. Rita's Language Week Poster Contest! Their posters were among the St. Rita population and they won on their own merits!!!
In reading, we will start with our test on our memoir, "Mississippi Solo", on Tuesday, 3/15. We will then read a poem on the drought. We will focus on the elements of a sonnet and try to write one ourselves. We don't have any vocabulary for this poem, but we will have questions when we are finished.
In language, we are going to review basic punctuation this week.
In writing, we are going to begin an argument this week. We have presented an argument back in first trimester, so now we will try it again.
