Persuasive Essays

We will be working on Persuasive Essays for the next two months in writing. One of our assignments will be to write a letter to Mayor MacArthur - this counts toward the Communications Badge for any BoyScouts. See Mrs. White for more information.

New book reports will be assigned next month - please be sure to choose a book at or above your reading level. You have to "stretch" to grow! I have included some websites for some of the more popular books that kids are reading. Some, including Stephenie Meyer's site, have thoughts from the author on how they write and develop characters.

What do you think of Percy? Do you relate more to him, or Annabeth, or Grover? Check out the websites on the menu to the right.
