This Week

This week we aren't going to have a new assignment since we are taking ERBs and working on our video book reviews. Check back for new videos as I receive them!

Book Reviews

The first three book reviews are posted below. I'm excited to see what books everyone likes and why. Your classmates can give you some great ideas for outside reading books. Some of my favorite books were read because a friend told me about them.

Remember your video is due by March 1st! Enjoy!

This week I want you to review punctuation and capitalization by visiting the following site and taking the online quiz.

Grammar Blast

If you are interested, there's a link in the left column to my daughter's blog, "A Chapter A Day." On this blog, she is sharing a novel she is writing. If you like Eragon or other fantasy novels, you might like this. She'd love for you to leave a comment if you read any of it.

Happy Valentine's Day!
