This week in reading, we will read our short story written by O. Henry called After Twenty Years. We will introduce our two characters, Silky Bob and Jimmy Wells. We will go through the plot pyramid and find all of the different parts of the story, and of course go over the vocabulary as well. In language, we are going to be working on our action verbs and our linking/helping verbs that we use to make our sentences flow properly. Finally in writing, we are working on our essay to close out The Outsiders. The students have to write about the community that the Greasers and the Socs lived in and how that community helped them or hurt them. These final essays will be due on Friday, 4/12.
We survived the Aspire tests and the arrival of the chicks, so now we can get back on schedule. Easter break will begin at 2:30 on Friday, 4/12 and continue through Wednesday, 4/24. The teachers have an event to attend downtown on Tuesday, 4/23 and Wednesday, 4/24 so we will be back in school Thursday, 4/25. Have a restful Easter break!
