Online Vocabulary Work

2.     Click on the link on my blog to take you to the link called “Zebra Block Four”.
3.     Join my group for this class.
4.     You might have to sign in again, so have access to your new e-mail account!

At the end of our half-hour on this, you’ll show me the following:
1.      Your level
2.     Number of grains of rice you’ve earned

Read and Relax

·      Fill it out.
·      Read and enjoy your just-right book for thirty minutes! 

Last Four Minutes of Class

a.     time ended
b.    page ended
2.     Rate yourself. (5, 4, 3, 2, 1)
3.     Text me how many pages you read today.  Text me the number of pages, then your last name!  No one will see it but me!
4.     Put your pink sheet and book over on the table where it was when class started.
