Week of January 21st
Posted on Jan 21, 2020
Welcome back from a long and busy weekend. I hope everyone had a chance to discuss progress reports and what needs to be improved and congratulations given for hard work!
This week in reading we are going to read chapters 15-18 in The Giver. We will work on chapter questions as well. As we go deeper into the story, I am pointing our important aspects of the plot and character development that will help the students with their formal book analysis. In writing, we are doing a few different things; we are finishing up our BIO POEMS that will be up for Catholic Schools Week and working on a one pager about Martin Luther King Jr.'s speech about "I Have a Dream". In language we are working on adverb/adjective phrases to add to our writing. Finally in Vocabulary, we are ina review unit, going back over the last three units.
