Week of January 13th
Posted on Jan 13, 2020
Welcome back after a very busy weekend. Just a reminder that this Friday, 1/17 progress reports go out. This is a good time to have a discussion about effort!
This week in reading we will read chapters 10-14 in The Giver and do the questions that go along with each of the chapters. As we go through the characters and the rising action, I am pointing out important parts so that when we put together our formal book analysis, these will come through. In language, we are working on prepositions and prepositional phrases. These help in our writing to bring about more details. In vocabulary, we are at the end of Unit 6, which means we will have our test on those 20 words tomorrow. We then go into a review unit which will go through the words from units 4-6. In writing, we are finishing our poems about Saint John Fisher that are going to be bound in a published book. Next we will work on our paragraph about one of the theories regarding the Nazca Lines in Peru(from vocab. unit).
