Today, we visited the library for the first time this year. Expectations for library book responsibility have tightened up. Students must bring their books back to the library in a timely fashion or their computer access could be suspended. We will have library time every Wednesday. Students should use this time to check out books and read silently. Socializing is prohibited in the library.
Tomorrow, our class will visit the computer lab for the first time. They will be publishing "Life Lists" on our class wiki. Only students who are issued usernames and passwords may access this; it is not accessible to the general public or anyone without a username and password. This is a fun creative writing opportunity that helps students imagine what their future lives could be like and allows them to get to know more about each other while honing their language arts and technology skills.
