Hi, Everybody! 

This week is Points Palooza Week: Your choice. Yay! 

Pick activities and assignments from the following list. By doing these, you are creating your own learning paths and your grade for the week. Do as many as you need to result in 100% for the week. I will give you extra credit if you go over 100%.

Don’t send Remind Messages for each single assignment. Wait until Friday and have your mom or dad use REMIND or email to send me the list of things you did and the grade they all add up to. Again, this must come from your parent.

Don’t forget that Friday your book reports are due. Your book report will be a simple verbal interview on ZOOM. I will be on ZOOM at these times: 10:00, 11:00, 12:00, 1:00, 2:00, and 3:00. You can come at any of those times, but if you don’t come to one session, your grade will be a ZERO.
