Weekend Warriors Week 5

Dear Chiddlers,

     I had a wonderful week, even though a shorter week feels much longer than a normal week. Sometimes, when we don't have a Monday, Monday figures out a way to exact revenge on us, spreading its vile, acerbic poison on the other days.

     Acerbic. Good word!

     I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! As for me, I'm heading out to Massachusetts with Molly for a photo shoot. We're getting our engagement photos taken (passive voice). We're taking our engagement photos! (Active voice. Doesn't active voice sound better?)

  • Planning Page! 
  • And your essay prompt: should schools offer cash rewards for good grades? 
  • Study/sharpen your spelling and vocabulary words. 

     ELA 4 

  • Planning Page! 
  • And your essay prompt: should schools offer cash rewards for good grades? 
  • Study/sharpen your spelling and vocabulary words. Don't just memorize them. Hide them in your heart. 

     ELA 3 

  • Write a letter to Sophie. Pretend you have known her since Pre-K 4. Pretend she's been your friend at Corpus Christi and she sits alone at the lunch table. You just found out that she's an orphan. Write her letter explaining what it's like to have a mom and dad. Tell her about having a family, and toys, and a childhood. Pour your heart out onto the page. I'm looking for sincerity. 
  • Study/sharpen your spelling and vocabulary words. Pretend each word is your favorite food. Don't eat it too fast! Savor it. Savor each word.
