Happy Tuesday!

I hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful day. 1/10 of an inch of ice yesterday, sixty degrees today. Got to love Missouri!

We have a busy four-day week planned in SEGA. We are learning how to delve deeply into our literature to find out the theme. The theme of a story is the message or moral the author is trying to portray through his/her story. For example, the theme of the Tortoise and the Hare is "Slow and Steady Wins the Race". It is much easier to find the theme of short stories and fables. Often times there are more than one theme in novels, which is the case with the three books we are reading in our book clubs.
