    Reading

    We will begin reading the novel Earthquake Terror.  Since the books are all at school, the story will be read to them as it is posted in a Screencastify.  As students read, they are working on many different reading skills such as cause and effect, predictions, theme, recognizing and interpreting figurative language, identifying character traits, and more.  Screencastify lessons are a must in order to complete the work.  Students will have an EQ Terror Packet to record information and then will use the packet to complete the Google Forms each week.
