For this short week before our Christmas Break, the 6th graders will put the skills on writing effective sentences and paragraphs to the test with a writing exercise. Students will be provided the subjects and then they must develop a short essay using the skills they have learned. The only homework for this week is to continue writing their short essay on Monday and Tuesday after practicing and researching during class. The final draft (typed) will be due on Wednesday. Feliz Navidad, Happy Holidays, Seasons Greeting, Merry Christmas and have a Happy New Year!
