In the fourth week, I am hoping we will work on chapters 14-possibly 18 so that we will only need to extend the Global Read Aloud project for one extra week and end on Nov. 1st.
On Monday, we’ll read chapter 14 after we review the main characters, setting, problem, potential solution, and recent events in the story. We’ll cut and glue pictures into our Comprehension Notebooks. We’ll add a picture of Dr. Dorian to our characters section. You can find (and use) the visuals here – ch14visuals.
Also on Monday, we’ll practice taking pictures with the iPad 2. Since we have several original iPads and only 2 iPad 2s, we’ll have to share. 🙂
The homework on Monday night will be to have an adult read chapter 14 aloud.
On Tuesday, we’ll read chapter 15 and cut and glue pictures into our Notebooks. We’ll also add a new vocabulary word to the back of our notebooks, “radiant.” You can find (and use) these visuals- ch15visuals.
Also on Tuesday, we will work on a writing piece individually. Student D will fill in the blanks including the title and characters’ names. Student C will fill in several blanks, but will be expected to write a complete sentence. Students A and B will write two complete sentences.
The homework on Tuesday night will be to have an adult read chapter 15 aloud.
On Wednesday, we’ll read chapter 16 and cut and glue pictures into our Notebooks. You can find the visuals here- ch16visuals. We’ll watch the section of the animated movie for chapters 13-16.
The homework on Wednesday night will be to have an adult read chapter 16 aloud.
On Thursday, we’ll read chapter 17 and cut and glue pictures into our Notebooks. You can find the visuals here- ch17visuals.
I’d like to prepare a Ferris Wheel craft that we can create today, but I couldn’t find any good ones online. I am going to try to work one up myself (whoa! new concept!) with popsicle sticks and will post it here as soon as I do. I like to have at least one good craft a week for us to use the cutting and fine motor skills we practice all week.
The homework on Thursday night will be to have an adult read chapter 17 aloud.
We’ll wait and see what happens then on Friday. We may need some more time to complete all of this OR we may take a day off OR we may have a quiz. I’m not quite sure yet. We’ll see how it all shakes out. 🙂
