This week in ELA we continued to read A SINGLE SHARD by Linda Sue Park, and we learned that we will soon get to do the A SINGLE SHARD tour of the Ann Arbor Art Museum which will be fun! Speaking of that, we are planning on doing this tour on Thursday, November 29 at 12:15. Given the awesome numbers in the 5/6 class, we will need one parent driver/chaperone to drive 2 kids. Let me know if you are interested!
Students are also continuing their independent reading of Linda Sue Park's other books, and it's been fun to talk about what they are reading about. Next week, as more students get further into more of their books, we will discuss each book more in depth.
We worked on Wizard of Oz only for a few minutes this week--it was a good reminder that everyone needs to memorize their lines so we can run smoother practices!
We also had a chance to look through our writing journals and choose one to work on over the next few weeks for editing and publication. I'm excited to see what they come up with!
