1.  We are starting reading circles with nonfiction books.    Check in with your student to see which book they are reading and what they think of it.  Some will need help with background knowledge.

Students have chosen one of the following books.  I have linked to the Amazon description for each book to make it easier for you to learn more:

The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey

Blink by Malcom Gladwell

Outliers by Malcom Gladwell

Where Good Ideas Come From by Steven Johnson

To Sell is Human by Daniel Pink

2.  We are underway with our penpals from Finland.  Students are excited to receive their first emails.

3.  Students are working on their dystopian short stories.
