I enjoyed our introduction to Percy Jackson in The Lightning Thief! We spent a lot of time using evidence to make inferences about his character in chapters one and two of the novel. We will continue this work next week while reading chapters three and four. There will be a mid-unit assessment on Friday where students will be assessed on providing a “gist statement” for a text and citing evidence from the text to prove their answers.
You can check your child’s agenda or the Gnomes website for next week’s homework. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
