This week...


In reading, we will begin the novel Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Students will meet Charlie Bucket and the eccentric Mr. Willy Wonka! We will find text evidence, determine author's craft and point of view, describe the overall mood/tone of the opening chapters, and identify character traits and plot. We will also be reviewing various grammar skills this week. Our vocabulary test will be Thursday, January 24th.

In social studies, we will discuss events that led to Shays's Rebellion, the Constitutional Convention, the Great Compromise, the Three-Fifths Compromise, Federalists, Anti-Federalists, checks and balances, and the Bill of Rights.

Reading Logs and fluency reads will go home this week. Please sign and return on Friday.

Remember to read 20 minutes each day!
