ELA Nov 28- Dec 2

We are starting a new unit on Shakespeare this week, particularly focusing on his life and the time period in order to have a context for his work. You will complete a web quest on Monday and Tuesday in partners. You will have a Shakespeare quiz on Thursday of this week, which will focus on the information from the web quest, readings for homework, and the Elizabethan age “field trip” you will take on Wednesday. On Friday you will complete an author spotlight activity on the life and times of Shakespeare.

NPH Giving Tree

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos (NPH) is an international organization

that takes in abandoned and orphaned children, providing a home and education. Here in

Honduras, the NPH organization provides for over 500 children in at large ranch near La Venta

and home in Tegucigalpa for severely handicapped children. While many children at the ranch

have aunts, uncles, or grandparents that come to visit them and can provide some Christmas

gifts, some children at a ranch have no family to visit. It is these children, whom we would like

to provide for this Christmas. In the main office, a NPH Giving Tree will be set up. If you wish to

participate, choose a paper tree that has a child’s information about his/her size for shoes and

socks. Purchase the new item and return it to Mrs. Agurcia’s Room (Rm. 7) by Wednesday,

December 8th, with the tree tag taped to it. Thank you for giving this Christmas!
