Week 4:  4/13 - 4/17  Distance Learning Assignments


Please work on these lessons daily to keep up with your schoolwork.  .  There are some assignments that I will need for you to send to me . You may write out the assignments on paper and take a picture of them, type your answers on a word document,  or copy the assignments from your student portal.  Whichever way is easier for you is fine.     Please  email them to me at:  nraffa@dadeschools.net.  Make sure you write your name, date and the  assignment on your work before you send it.  Thank you.

Remember you will need to access your reading books online through your portal as I showed you in class.  (Click on the red book, select your class, click on “resources”.  You will use 4 books from those resources:  the Reading Writing Workshop  Book, the Literature Anthology book,  the Your Turn Practice workbook, and the Grammar Practice workbook)

Also remember to work on your other assignments from Ms. Ojito, Ms. Miyar, Mr. Anuez/Nunez,  Ms. Placeres, and Mr. Garrastazu.

Thank you. 😊
