Back in the classroom, we're on to new learning targets in both Reading and Language Arts. In Reading, we're working on sequencing with a biography on Satchel Paige. Check out the Reading Street Unit link for more information on this Hall-of-Fame pitcher. In Language Arts, we're now focusing our efforts on completing the first draft of our personal memoirs.
