I am also reading a book aloud ot the class called Word Nerd by Susin Nielsen. The students will be listening and doing some activities with the book, some of the same activities they will have to do with their independent novel. I have one extra copy of the book for students to borrow when they are absent. The students will have a reading page to fill out with each chapter and will be handing them in periodically throughout the reading. Please see the attached page.
We are wrapping up our Algebra unit this week and reviewing some measurement before the end of Term 1 this week. Term 2 begins next week.
Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
