We have been reading our last short novel as a class together the past week. The students have been sent home with parts of the book as homework; this has allowed for in depth conversations and discussion about the book. We will finish the book mid May. Be on the look out for a post about the project for the end of the book. Next week is SAGE testing, so we will be taking a break from the book for 2 weeks.
We finished up our last set of vocabulary words this past week. After SAGE testing we will begin a short novel that will take us through to the end of the year.
We have worked this whole past week at learning about basic topics of Greek mythology and the ancient Greek culture. After SAGE testing we will continue to read some Greek myths and complete research on Greek mythology.
