• Reading - Day 6:

    Tuesday, March 24, 2020

    Weekly Overview: This week we will continue to read the novel Freak the Mighty.  You will demonstrate your understanding of the story by applying reading strategies by responding to what you read in written form.

    Estimated Time: Approximately 45 minutes each day

    Things to know:

    • Readers utilize their strategies by tracking their thinking while reading! Be metacognitive!
      • Thinking + Text = Real Reading!
    • A summary includes important events in the story, including the setting, characters, and the conflict.

    *All activities can be completed in your composition book or electronically (Word, Seesaw, PowerPoint, etc.)
    **Files needed for today's activities can also be found in our Homeroom Team
