Part 2 due date is bumped to Monday 10-16 because of the half day on Friday.
Begin reading Part 3 which will be due Monday, 10-23. If you want to increase margins in the Graphic Organizer I gave you, it is embedded below:
Please print and work on review sheets (3) to reinforce essential words/concepts and practice skills with reading comprehension, inference, using context clues, identifying TONE, purpose, audience, and techniques. The skills based test will use evidence from some of the stories we read, but also contain new passages. One will be literary and the others will be non-fiction (comparing/contrasting text).
Bring your completed review to class next WEDNESDAY to review in class. You will earn extra credit points as well 🙂
No AOW post this week.
We will be setting writing goals based on feedback in the Writer’s Notebook this week, wrapping up our unit with work on a King Arthur piece (tone, summary vs. paraphrase, writer’s craft techniques), and preparing for our unit test. Look for a unit test review later this week. The test is next Thursday 10-19.
You can increase the sizes of the boxes by opening the document posted below if the copy I gave in class is too small for you.
