To open class today, I will be sharing summer reading program information for our librarian, but also to encourage my students to read over the summer. For several it seems like "summer reading" is an oxymoron, but I want them to know many people including myself will be reading for enjoyment all summer long.
Class time today will be spent finishing yesterday's final letter assignment. This is the last day of regular classes for my students (any many are not in class due to end of the year obligations with band, choir, etc.), so it's very relaxed - it's all about finishing and looking toward summer at this point.
To wrap up class today, I want to allow students to share their plans and goals for the summer. What can you do to make this summer "awesome"?
To get that going we'll view the video below -
