It was a great (and busy) week back! We hit the ground running, for sure!
Each student was given a copy of World Without Fish, by Mark Kurlansky. Just a reminder, these books should be treated as text books and will have to be replaced if they are lost. The cost on Amazon is $8.
We read through Chapter 2 this week and did some really fun activities with the text. The kids made Nearpod videos, completed a GooseChase (online scavenger hunt), and today they tried to stump each other with two truths and a lie! It was a packed week.
It continues to be super-important that students keep up with their reading at home each night. We will be using the text reading in class on the following day. Students should also be completing two questions per chapter each night at home. These questions are on a Fish-O (Bingo) board, and this can be found in Google Classroom along with a response document if students would rather answer digitally than in their ILL.
Thank you all for your continued support!
Have a great weekend,
