    Explanation of Assignment: You will read independently, and also read a passage and respond to the questions provided.


    1. Read your independent reading book for 30 minutes- write a 6 sentence summary in your homework book. You may also email OR write your summary in Word and share the summary if you prefer  (electronically).

    Overview: Reading Non-fiction text and taking notes

    Estimated Time: 45 minutes

    Explanation of Assignment: You will learn about the Statue of Liberty and take notes on the information in the text.  This material is in your GOLD envelope that was sent home last week. 


    1. Continue to read the World Book STUDENT article: Statue of Liberty

    Read pages 3 and 4 and then part of page 5 of the article.

    *Focus on the “Description” sub- heading section*


    AS YOU READ: if any information answers the 3 topics on your cards (see Day 1 for the topics)- WRITE THAT DOWN on your cards, using bullets—NOT complete sentences.

    HIGHLIGHT the info/sentences you are taking notes on


    Ex: TOPIC 1

    • National monument
    • Statue- a standing structure


    1. Once you read and take notes on pages 3 and 4 and part of 5, your work is done for today! Good Job!
