Happy Tuesday! I can't wait to see you tomorrow.

Happy Birthday Catherine!!!

First things first

Please read through this entire Smore so you have a clear idea what to expect from your day. After the announcements please move on to the next section below.

8:30 - 9:00 READ!


Please come in quietly and read. You may also write in your reading response journal.


There are about SEVEN of you that did not write in Evernote yesterday. Make sure you are doing that. You must make good use of this time.


Some of you may need to go to the library. Please ask Mrs. Tyson for permission and hurry back quickly.

People absent on Thursday, Friday, or Monday.

You will need to make sure that you have read through the end of Chapter 3 in Chains during this silent reading time.

9:00 - 9:25 Group Read

Today we will read Chapter 4 in Chains.


I would like for you to have about a five minute conversation before you begin begin reading today. Let's get a good list of who the characters are. Chapter 3, I think, is an important chapter. We are introduced to two more main characters, so we want to make sure we understand who they are, and what they bring to the story before we move on. What feeling do we get from them?

You guys did a really good job on Subtext yesterday!

9:25 - 10:15 Specials

10:15 - 11:00 Language Arts

Today we will be reading a book titled The Real Story of the 3 Little Pigs. You can gather around Mrs. Tyson on the floor to listen. Make sure you are not sitting next to someone who will distract you. You will also need a Turn and Talk Partner.

Practice Cause and Effect

After reading The Real Story of the 3 Little Pigs please send me an email that has at least on cause and effect statement from Chains.
