After our writing conferences today I can say that all of you are ready to finish your writing assignments and turn in on Monday your final drafts. Make sure that you account for all of your changes and read through it several times to make sure that it is correct and grammatical. In addition, try to add some adjectives for your nouns - this will help you to better learn all of the endings.
I will not be with you on Monday, so you will turn in your work to Ms. Ginocchio.
This weekend I want you to continue working on your handwriting and pronunciation as you begin studying Russian cities. Make sure that you write each city five times - and each time you write the name of the city, say all of the sounds and the word as a whole. In the last column, tell me where the city is. Use Yandex maps to find your cities. If you need a Russian keyboard you can use this one at this link.
On Monday you'll start your research on these cities.
For my Russian students, here's Полина Гагарина - a wonderful Russian singer.
Over the weekend you have no homework to complete - please stay focused on studying your notes from the two pieces we've read so that you are constantly preparing for your unit test on Russian literature.
