    Please view my web page daily AND Google Classroom classes.  Daily homework and due dates will be listed below.  Refer to your LANGUAGE ARTS and SOCIAL STUDIES classes in Google Classroom for daily classroom activities and announcements.

     

    Also, I require 80 minutes of reading outside of class time each week.  This reading will be evident in his/her electronic IR logs kept at school.  "How?" you ask. Students should know the answer to that question. Please ask me if you are confused!
