Language

In language, we will continue writing about the theme of stories.

Character Education

In Character Education, students will read fables and identify the theme.

A Look Ahead

Next week, students will begin a unit focusing on the book Hatchet by Gary Paulsen. We will continue to cite text evidence and discuss theme, but will include work with comparing two or more events in a story and the effects they have the main character.

End of First Quarter is October 16. Students should have 100% of their AR goal by that time!
