Thursday, 5/25 (9): YEE #4, Message to 6th Grade

  • How can you arrange for two people to stand on the same piece of newspaper and yet be unable to touch each other without stepping off the newspaper?

YEE #4. No need to panic…yet.

For those who have completed their YEE obligation, use a separate sheet of paper for your AlternaYEEs. Date it each time. Turn it in at the end for extra credit.

“AlternaYEE, 5/25.”  Anagrams! Each of the phrases below unscrambles into the name of a character from one of our books/stories. If the last name is given in the book, it is included in the anagram. Ignore any apostrophes, spaces or capitals. Use all the letters.

  1. Support A Disco
  2. Let Sin Rampage
  3. I Meet Greasers (It’s a trick!)
  4. Fun Biker Lyncher
  5. Fried Leech
  6. A Lilac Satin Wimp

And let that page come out of you—
Then, it will be true.”

Hmmm. What does that mean?

“I guess I’m what 
I feel and see and hear”

What do you FEEL and see and hear?

YEE Three!
