By the Great Horn Spoon!

We have started our last novel of the year, By the Great Horn Spoon!, a story about the California Gold Rush written by Sid Fleischman. As the blurb on the back of one edition of the book puts it:

"The year is 1849 and the California Gold Rush is on. Together with his butler Praiseworthy, young Jack Flagg sets out to save his pretty Aunt Arabella's fortune. On a ship bound from Boston to the California gold fields, they stow away in potato barrels . . . and their wild, swashbuckling adventures begin."

Today's homework:
1.  Math Mr. Spaulding:  p. 455-456.
              Miss W:  p. 469-470.
              Mrs. Thompson:  two problems/flash cards.
              Mrs. Leone:  p. 317-318.
2.  What is poetry?  What does it mean to you?
3.  Read for half an hour.
4.  Get parent initials.
