Reading: Tone/Mood review WS (front AND back!)
Language: Retell of the Theseus myth using exciting word choice
Math: Review/Preview WS
Kids had time during class to start (and hopefully finish!) their Theseus rewrite. It's a way to keep practicing our new skill of identifying tone and mood, while also helping us become better writers. I can't wait to see what they came up with!
The reading worksheet may be a little different - the front side is a simple multiple choice review that shows me that the students understood the skill we studied in class this week - but the back....the back is the bread and butter! The back of the worksheet is the application side where the kids have to APPLY the skills! It's nothing too long, but it will give me a good insight into how well the students understood the concept and how easily they can apply their new knowledge. This type of homework will be pretty typical of life in 6th grade ELA!
Have a great weekend! I've updated some grades today -- progress reports go home next Friday!
