You and only you are responsible for the completion of your assignments. As we discussed, you will have nightly math homework in your standards and practice Go Math book and an enrichment page every night (except sometimes on Friday). You will also have long-term assignments that could range anywhere from a few days to a week or even longer for more in-depth projects. Please pace yourselves. In addition, you should have at least three-four writing entries in your notebook every week, keeping in mind that each entry should be at least one double sided page (or even longer)-- You may type your entries but don't forget to put into your notebooks. In that case, it can be one page long (at least) with font size no bigger than 12 and no smaller than 10. Don't forget to use your book logs and write at least one meaningful comment per book. You must read at least 25 chapter books by the end of the school year. That being said, your teacher may occasionally modify assignments or forget to post an enrichment page. (She is after all, only human). If that is the case, do not panic. You are not responsible for something that is not posted or if we did not review the task in class first. Any questions, do not hesitate to contact Mrs. Davis. Just please, NO EXCUSES--the day something is due.

Place at least one Post It note next to passages where you notice that you're learning something about your character/his or her personality based on their interaction with the environment-setting. If there is nothing special or unique about the setting that impacts the main character, write about what you are learning about the main character through his or hers interactions with other characters. Explain your thought process.
