Mark Up the Text!

Posted: September 8, 2015 in Home

Don’t forget to mark up the stories we started in class today–that includes annotating. Look for interesting and important parts, key details, unknown words, and any questions you may have and any symbols you might find. (Do you remember the definition of symbol?) Also, don’t forget to check the homework page on this blog.

Tomorrow we will dig deeper into the stories. Tonight, be sure that you understand “what” is happening in the stories, and tomorrow we will begin to get to the “why.”

I am happy to see how engaged everyone was today. We’re all off to great start!
