September 12- September 16

This week we read one of the most exciting chapters of The Outsiders and we are really beginning to think critically about the actions and motives of the characters.  At the same time, we started to analyze the various themes that are surfacing in the story and used passages from the text to support our ideas.

Additionally, we took a much closer look at active literacy and practiced the skills we learned in earnest.  I have included the presentation below.  Feel free to view and discuss its content with your children.

Finally, we rounded out the week with our first vocabulary quiz.  We focused on the terms the we studied from the first two chapters of the book and demonstrated our understandings on Friday.  Due to the quiz, there will be no homework this weekend!  Enjoy.
