This week...


September 17-21

In reading, students will begin continue the novel Because of Winn-Dixie. They will learn about the narrator, Opal, and learn about her adventures with a dog named Winn-Dixie. We will find text evidence, answer close-reading questions, review commas/quotations, analyze the setting, and do a character analysis. In writing, students will compose a narrative in which they pretend to be a ten-year-old who experienced the dust storm on Black Sunday.

In social studies, we will continue learning about European explorers and how they made their way to the Americas. Students will learn about French explorers in the Americas, as well as the mystery surrounding the "Lost Colony" of Roanoke.

Reading Logs and fluency reads are due on Friday.

Remember to read 20 minutes each day!
