Language Arts Update- With regards to reading, we are currently working on a novel study as we are reading the “Bridge to Terabithia”. In this unit of study, we will be exploring different literary tools that an author uses to engage a reader (similes, metaphors, personification, hyperbole, idioms and onomatopoeia). This unit will also investigate uses of vocabulary and parts of speech along with comprehension questioning. At the end of the unit, students will also have created a main idea map as they construct one comic panel per chapter using Pixton > https://www.pixton.com/ that encompasses the main idea of the chapter.
In writing, students are busily typing up the good copy of their Christmas memoir. This piece will be formally marked, and students are doing revisions and editing on their own. They have a checklist to follow to ensure they are meeting the necessary expectations.
