Welcome back to 2020! I hope all of you had a very blessed Christmas and a wonderful New Year filled with lots of family and fun and sleep!!! Now it is back to routines and rules and work. This Wednesday 1/8 is special lunch.
In reading this week, we will continue reading The Giver orally and working on the comprehension questions. We are taking the story element by element to help us with the formal book analysis we will work on when we finish the novel. This week we should get through chapter nine. In language, we are working with direct and indirect objects which help out the verbs (which we just finished). In vocabulary, we will begin Unit 6 today with an explanation of the words and then go through the different exercises in the book up to page 79. In writing, we will talk about our new goals for 2020 and come up with one word that will take us through the year and what we are trying to accomplish!
As I mentioned before Christmas break, the students need to have their school supplies needed for not only my class, but all of the classes! Glue, scissors, colored pencils, loose leaf paper etc. Please double check to make sure all of this is available to them. Another important reminder is to check planners for work that needs to be finished. Happy New Year
