After looking at the schedule for social studies for the second trimester, we worked together to come up for reasonable due dates for reading for the second trimester. I just updated the Kragen calendar with the new due dates and posted it to the site here. AND I updated the second trimester reading contract and reposted it to the site.
I've taught a couple of art lessons in the last few days. The students are continuing to play with the art projects. As they work they listen to each other read their short stories.
