This WEEK we will be continuing to read our novel Holes and do the worksheets that go with these chapters.  On the left hand side of this page, you will see the tab titled "Holes Audiobook" where you can click and listen to the book being read to you.  You can also find the PDF of the book and all Ch1-7 worksheets in the "Files and Documents..." tab on the left side in the folder titled "Holes." 

You need to read Chapters 1-7 as well as do the worksheets that go with the chapters.  Do a little bit each day.  In the worksheet bundle you will find the vocabulary words for the chapters as well as the worksheets that go with them.  Don't forget to write a sentence of your own using each vocabulary word.  You can print the worksheets and write on them and send a picture back to me or save them and send them as an attachment in an email.  You can just email the answers to me if that is the best way for you to get me the information. Please let me know if you have any questions.  Happy reading!!!

Students:  Please go into the "Files, Documents, LA Quarters at a Glance, and SOL Resources" folder and get your Lexia login in the Lexia folder.  You should be logging into Lexia at least 3 days a week and working in it for at least one hour at a time. This is an easy way to improve your reading and grammar. (I suggest going on every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday).  You can get to Lexia by clicking on the Lexia Power Up tab on the left!
