September 19- 23, 2016
We will continue reading from our first class novel for the year. The students are reading Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt. The students will write their first journal response to some of the questions and mysteries in the story.
We will also read about the invasion of the Isle of Wight in 1377 and about the role the Carisbrooke Castle garrison played in defending the island against the French. This is preparation for our visit to the castle in a couple of weeks.
