Langauage Arts will be FULL this semester with HOMEWORK. Students will be reading the novel HUSH by author Jaqueline Woodson. Thsi is a great book to read with students. I will record a read aloud on my YOU TUBE channel "FLIPPED PAWS", for students that need a little help or just want some company reading.
We will also use our COLLECTIONS TEXTBOOK a LOT this semester. Be ready to see that big black book come home often.
