Fun day today! Students solved puzzles and riddles to crack the code to lock boxes. It was the first week, so if students came home a little discouraged about struggling with some of the puzzles, give them a pep talk! This class is structured to help them grow and growing takes time! I thought they all did great!
No homework will be assigned until we start the reading of The Maze of Bones. Reminder: please purchase this book for students to bring to class starting September 2; but DO NOT let them start the book ahead of time! Although reading will be done at home, so that students can read at their own pace and level, the mystery will be discussed in class with activities to accompany. We don't want any spoilers! Many thanks ....
