This week we will continue to prepare for our Isle of Wight trip. We will be reading about the specific lions and tigers (no bears) and jaguars that we will be visiting at the zoo next week. Students will read and report on the history, personality and quirks of the big cats.
Vocabulary quiz number two is scheduled for Monday, September 22nd for reading groups 1, 2, 3 and 6. Groups 7 and 8 will take their quiz on Tuesday, September 23rd. Additional information about vocabulary study/quiz expectations and a link to the current and previous lists can be found on the vocabulary page of this website.
We will also continue reading from our first class novel for the year. The students are reading Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt. We have started writing journal responses to some of the questions and mysteries in the story.
