Novels:  We are reading chapters 14-17 and answering comprehension questions. 


October 15-18
Reading:  We will be reading a short story on symbolism and by the end of the week, students will have created their 'coat of arms' based on symbolism in their life. (If students finish their coat of arms, we will begin our end of unit 1 test.)

Language Arts:  Continue to work in possessive nouns.  

Writing:  We had a set back last week for writing, so this week students will complete their rough draft and peer edits.  Next week we will begin our final draft.  Note that the narrative will be due on the second quarter grades.

Novel:  Students are reading 'The Westing Game' chapters 8-10.
