|Vocabulary Station (They're hams)|
We are finishing up our short story unit this week. I love the short story unit, because it provides a great opportunity to talk about author's style, literary terms. elements of a story, and so much more! This comes in handy later when we read novels.
We began the week with stations. Students visited five stations and completed a variety of tasks. We had just finished reading "Rikki-Tikki Tavi," so a few stations involved learning vocabulary from the story and finding textual evidence to support whether or not Rikki was a brave and likable
|Working on textual evidence questions|
|Working on a Plot Diagram|
|Finding textual evidence|
Once we finish our theme presentations, we will begin The Outsiders. Students will be writing an informational essay. They will also read a variety of non-fiction to supplement the novel.
As always, it is a joy teaching this age group!
