LA Update

Good afternoon! Happy Halloween!

We are continuing with our focus on central idea, supporting details and sequencing and along with that, we are adding summary writing this week. We will do a couple of reading activities for practice and then begin instruction on summary writing. Classwork and homework is posted on the Gnomes’ Calendar.

Today, we read “The Monkey’s Paw” by W.W. Jacobs. A 5-7 sentence practice summary paragraph is due tomorrow, and we will use this practice paragraph to compare our “before” and “after” instruction of summary writing. The story is attached.

Be safe and have a great evening!
