Today in class, we discussed a class project that I think you will all enjoy greatly – making class recipe books! Here is the project information page – Narrative Recipe Project. Please see me for mentor texts to give you a sample of what to do. This project is due one week from today (November 18). One week later (November 25) I’ll distribute copies of your class cookbook, and we will celebrate with a class Thanksgiving party.

Homework for tonight was to do one page of prewriting for your project. That can be a layout, some research, an interview with a parent about the steps for your recipe, etc.

Also today, students took a diagnostic grammar test to see what we need to focus on in terms of instruction. If you were absent, please come make this up during Friday’s lunch tutorials.
