Summer is an exciting time of the year, kids like to have fun everyday. I would love to know what you guys did the whole summer. The students should make a journal entry every day before going to bed, writing what they did whole day. I don’t want entire essays but a couple of lines with date and day explaining how did you spend your day.
Please decorate your journals and bring it back the following school year. This will be graded in your MP 1.
