Friday Library and Sway

Good morning, sorry I have to be away so early in the semester, but my throat feels like it has glass shards in it and I don’t want anyone to get sick.

After your toc does attendance, please go down to the library and enjoy Ms. Henderson’s book talk!  Everyone must choose a book to leave in the classroom.  You can get to know your book (read it) for 15-20 minutes.  If there is time, please work on your sway which is due on Tuesday, along with the descriptive paragraph.  Have a great Friday!
