We just finished with "The Pedestrian", a short story by Ray Bradbury. Students compared "The Bet" and "The Pedestrian" in groups. If you weren't here, come see me and I will give you the instructions so you can catch up on this assignment.
With each story we study, students have written a short piece to share with a peer. We have been practicing both writing and peer reviewing skills. You can check Skyward for the assignment names - they are pretty self-explanitory. If you have questions, please email me.
Next week, we will be reading "Everyday Use" and visiting the Media Center to check out all the resources available.
We have Scholastic Reading Inventory testing coming up on September 22. The test is designed to assess how strong your reading skills are. This assessment will give me important information to help me help you strengthen your reading skills.We will be taking them again in the Spring to see how much you have improved.
Be sure to check your grades - they are updated!
