Article of the Week
The Article of the Week for this week is titled, What the Painful Bites of Six Different Deadly Creatures Feel Like. Students are asked to use close reading strategies practiced in class. This requires students to read each article three times, making meaningful annotations with each read. Students will then answer the scaffolded questions at the end of each article. This assignment is DUE: Tuesday, Feb. 20. Students will receive some time in class to work on this assignment.
We will continue reading and discussing the novel Hatchet by Gary Paulsen. This week our focus will be on chapters 13-15. There will be no more quizzes over this novel. On Monday, students will receive a menu of project choices for this novel. We will go over each project choice in great detail in class. Their final project will be DUE BY: Thursday, March 8.
The menu of projects are attached to the 6th grade Reading Homepage. Please note there is an opportunity for extra credit.
