I hope everyone had a great week! We are moving quickly through The Lightning Thief and will read a few more chapters next week. We began the work of understanding more about Greek mythology and Greek gods this week. They play a role in the background of The Lightning Thief, so it’s interesting to learn how the two are woven together. We will continue that work next week reading the myths of Cronus and Prometheus.
Towards the end of the week we will introduce a group project, Myths to Movies. In small groups, students will study a myth and make a short "movie" to educate classmates on that myth. Planning for this will begin Wednesday and move into the following week. Should be fun!
Please check the Gnomes Calendar for next week’s homework, and have a great weekend!
