English IV

Daily Warm Up

Content Objective

I will select a tale, read and create a retelling of the tale for presentation. This will include deciphering language of the tale to enhance meaning, and finding key phrases that add imagery to the tale. I will then incorporate these words and phrases into a word cloud.

Language Objective

I will read my chosen tale with my partner and rewrite it, limited to 1 page, typed & uploaded. I will look up words that I do not know and find awesome lines from the story. And create a visual for these words and phrases.
