I will collect 6th and 7th on Wednesday and the rest (1st, 3rd, 4th, and 5th) on Thursday (although if you are in those classes and yours is ready, you can turn it in early). You will have a few minutes to put it together and fill in the table of contents tomorrow (Wednesday). I will be grading pp.100-114. (That is a lot of pages, so find all the "stuff" that goes in there!)

The test is in less than 1 week! We take the writing portion on Monday, 3/26/12, and the reading portion on Tuesday, 3/27/12. The last opportunity for a little extra help will be this Saturday, 3/24/12. Hope to see you there!
Reminder of your homework for tonight: Finish the grammar practice packet (the second "Revising and Editing: Passage 2..." is what is left). Also, complete the pathos/logos chart about "Carry Your Own Skis." Remember, there will be homework each night this week, but it shouldn't take you long. Please help yourself get ready for the EOC/STAAR next week! =]

Take 10-15 minutes and fill out the graphic organizer to plan your literary essay (write a story about the power of imagination, with or without the picture as a focus). You will write the essay in class tomorrow. This is practice in timed writing and will be due at the end of the period, so keep an eye on the time!
