September 6th New homework. For homework this week I am asking students to complete a character analysis chart. Today in class they were suppose to make an example of one to take home. To the right you will see an example of a character analysis chart along with the questions to help them. They are to read for 20 minutes a fiction book. They can read a chapter book and focus on the chapters they read for that night. Then draw the chart, choose the character to analyze, then fill out the chart.
August 11th - Homework Parents we have begun asking and answering questions for homework. Homework will stay the same for the next couple weeks. They are to read for 20 minutes. Then ask and answer 4 questions. Please check their answers to ensure they are complete. I am looking for the answers to include: answer, explanation (because), evidence (details). Example: Why did Jubal think his wish did not work? Jubal thought his wish did not come true because Captain Dalbert and Gerdy are miserable. The Captain hid in his boat and Gerdy is yelling at her toadlets. On page 12, Jubal said, "That wizard tricked me. Captain Dalbert and Gerdy are more miserable than ever. And what has happened to my happy sunny day?"
