Students who didn’t finish in class today need to complete that SAR over the weekend and bring it in on Monday.

Other weekend stuff:

-No reading guide for TGC, but please get to page 200.

-Make sure your sentences (w/ participles) are ready to go for Monday, and they you are prepared for your vocab quiz.

-I’m offering an extra 100 (in the daily work category) if you would like to watch the first Lord of the Rings movie and write an SAR about it:


Have a good weekend!
