Students checked out books today as we went to the library to learn about the importance of reading and books and are expected to take a test on books in 3 weeks on the Accelerated Reader platform.
We are starting our first novel of the YEAR!!!!
Where the Red Fern Grows will be an exploration of childhood development and adventure. We will start off slow focusing on content, then we will pick up pace as the weeks go along.
The first chapter and summaries are due Friday, September 20, 2018
We will also go over point of view, setting, theme and main idea, and writing fundamentals.

Last week we went deeper into our Summer Reading assignments and recap.
This week, we will focus on Nonfiction narratives and writing. How can we dissect and construct these types of writings to create and understand what we reading and processing.
The standards we will focus on are:
ELAGSE6RL1: Cite textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text. ELAGSE6RL2: Determine a theme and/or central idea of a text and how it is conveyed through particular details; provide a summary of the text distinct from personal opinions or judgments
