    Read The Adventures of Huck Finn. This week, I would suggest Chapter 19-36.

    Memorize the poem, The Highwayman Part 1
    In the reading section of the resource library of Schole@home, I have uploaded a google document of all of your autobiographical poems, part 1. I just realized that the file with the pictures of the poems with handwriting are too large, so I will convert them to type and upload Part 2 early next week.

    THIS MONTH’S ASSIGNMENT FOR SUBMISSION:
    A writing assignment from our study of Adventures of Huck Finn. It will be outlined midway through the month.
    Please contact heather@atrbenefits.com with any questions.
