Students will have a quiz tomorrow on Chapters 1-6 from The Giver.  To help prepare them for the quiz, I highly recommend that they reread the chapters and review the comprehension questions.

May 9, 2019

There will be no Read Theories due this week. Students began reading The Giver by Lois Lowry today and this will be our main focus for the remainder of the school year.  Weekly quizzes will be given on the chapters we’ve read and the vocabulary words we’ve discussed.  It is essential that students are reviewing the comprehension questions and vocabulary words on a daily basis.  Our first quiz will be on Friday, May 17, 2019.
