Happy week-before-spring-break!!!

This week we will be focusing on our historical fiction reading and writing unit.

READING:  We will be working with our mentor texts in class to understand the parts narrative structure and analyze the way that actual historical events shape the plot.  You will continue this reading response work in your own historical fiction books as well.

WRITING:  I am happy that so many of you are excited about the opportunity to write FICTION!  Your major writing piece for this unit is a short story.  You can continue working on the entry that you started last week, and you will have the opportunity to start another one this week as well.

GRAMMAR and WORD STUDY:  We will wrap up our work with articles this week and complete a mixed review of the parts of speech.  When we come back from break, we will focus on some punctuation work.  Wednesday, we will be in the computer lab for our word study assessment, and you will have time to work on your portfolios there.
