ENGLISH LANGUAGE ARTS
May 11th - May 14th
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.
