Today students read through chapter 3 and took thorough notes on chapters one, two, and three with their partners
Students need to write a Halfpage to one page summary of the plot so far in the novel.
To make up for our missed Silent Sustained Reading day on Monday as part of Lit Club Monday, we used today to work it in. Students read and worked on their reading logs. I handed back Close and Critical Writings for those testing out and collected those writings from students still working on testing out.
We tackled a lot today. We watched Flocab Week in Rap. We got our packets that go with it that are due on Tuesday.
Students got a chance to reflect on their Close and Critical reading progress, got their last C&C back, and got their new packet today. Some classtime was allotted for this. This will be due on Monday. Students are trying to test out on these, so they may be asking others for editing help.
Today students finished reading in class chapter 1 of the Giver. They had opportunities to create notes on the chapter and answer these three questions in class or complete for homework.
1-Who were the characters so far in the story?
2-What is Jonas' world like? What information did you read that made you believe this?
3-How does Jonas feel about the arrival of December? What information did you read that explains it?
