Hi all! Here we go! As the end of the quarter creeps up behind us and yells, “BOO!” (We literally have 1 week left before the end of Quarter 1), please continue making an effort to stay focused on your work. I am so proud of those of you who are trying your best to read better, write better, be curious and successful! Stay on track towards a better YOU!
As promised, let’s give you another opportunity to boost that grade. This week’s extra credit assignment will take the place of a missing assignment or add 10 points to your lowest score.
In honor of Halloween, we will Flashback to your childhood and think of those scary moments… In the comments section, please share either the scariest story, book, or movie from when you were a kid or a personal experience of something creepy happening to you. Let me go first! My favorite scary novel is called House of Leaves by Mark Danielewski. This book is crazy scary about a guy who finds the notes of an old man who has died and gone mad trying to solve the mystery of a house that keeps expanding into unknown space. Doesn’t sound that scary until the people can’t find there way out. Even creepier the way the book is written he tries to show how the house has made him go crazy. Here are some pictures.
Ok so I shared mine, now you share yours!
