This week, students will be writing their essay on the Fertile Crescent. We did brainstorming activities before holiday break and now we are turning those ideas into paragraphs. Students will be asked to work at a one paragraph per day pace starting on Tuesday, Jan. 3. Any work that is not finished in class will be assigned for homework that night. The next day we will move on to the next paragraph. Two days of classtime will also be dedicated to typing their final drafts. Please make sure that your child is working on this assignment at home and assist in the editing process. Thanks and Happy New Year!!
