On Monday, we will finish organizing our binders and complete a writing sample.
We will be integrating Social Studies topics into many of our literature units this year. We will begin our first unit on Tuesday, and will be reading a novel called, Blood on the River: Jamestown 1607 by Elisa Carbone, which is takes place during American colonial times. Students will receive a study guide to complete as we read the book. As we begin reading this week, we will discuss how character descriptions in text can help the reader identify and infer character traits and motivations.
Students will also be reviewing the parts of speech this week and responding to journal prompts in their Warm-up Journals each day.
