Thanks to the recommendation of Eva, I started a Google Classroom page for 5th grade ALO. Hopefully this helps you all stay more organized. It should be up and running. I posted the latest assignment on Thursday 2/4.
This week, we started reading the novel Edge of Nowhere. Students practiced making predictions on Monday and Tuesday. On Wednesday, we will study some common boat terminology that comes up in the beginning of the novel. I will give the students time to read chapter 4 IN CLASS on Wednesday as it is Student Appreciation Day, and the students don't receive homework. On Thursday, we will discuss the first four chapters and look more closely at the structure of the novel.
Homework updates for this week and next week:
-Read chapter 3 - DUE WEDNESDAY 2/3
