On to 2nd quarter! This quarter we'll continue with our stems, including not only a review test at the end of the quarter over 2nd quarter, but also 1st quarter.

We'll also be doing a lot of work comparing texts through our writing assessment. Finally, we'll read the murder mystery And Then There Were None.

Please have a book to read every day -- your choice! Not sure what to read? Follow me on Twitter @MissMartinReads for books recommendations (or reasons to avoid a book), authors I'm following, book-to-movie trailers, and more!
