Yesterday we worked on our children’s books –reading one book then completing a “Pathways to a Theme”.

  1.  At the end of your Pathways to a Theme, your group should have come up with some deep thinking questions.  At the end of yesterday’s class, you should have read two children’s books and completed two Pathways to a Theme.  You will be given a sheet of paper (11*14)…you will write down your questions on this sheet of paper.  *If you did not have time to finish your second “Pathways to a Theme” in class, I will give you time…
  2. Reading a Children’s book Power Point
  3. *I would like you to go to your edublog and post your pathways that you have completed.  I will go over how to post, categorize and tag.*We are coming back to our questions….we will be categorizing them:)
  4. Today we are going to start our short story unit.  To review, please open the document Prose Fiction Terminology.  We will go over any unfamiliar terms…and we will establish a date for a quiz for a ‘short story terms quiz’.  Currently I am thinking Monday September 18th …It gives a few days to prepare…



4.  We will be reading the short story “Sam the Athlete” aloud as a class.
