Run For Your Lives

The kids have two parts of their homework tonight. The first is that they need to study for their Caesar's English quiz tomorrow (see the sidebar for the roots and meanings--if you are on a device, make sure you scroll all the way to the bottom and hit "view web version".

Secondly, all students should have brought home a news article, at the top, it says "Newsela". They are to read through this article and then answer the questions at the end. We will discuss the article in class tomorrow, and I want them to have it read before we start the discussion. One helpful hint that I always give the kids is to read the questions first. That way, they will know what they are looking for in the reading. Of course, they may read it along with you. It's not very long, but I will allow them to count that reading as a part of their twenty minutes of nightly reading.

These members of Woodbrook's Pups Running team would like to urge you all to participate in the Ghosts and Goblins Run this Saturday morning. You can still sign up right here, so get to it!
