PA for the Week of 1-26

 There is no Talent Development this week because of CBM testing.

3PA will continue reading The Green Book by Jill Paton Walsh. In the 3PA Google Classroom there is a guide with the activities, vocabulary, an article about jelly fish and bioluminescence plus the questions we will be discussing as we read chapters 3 and 4. Feel free to explore this before we meet tomorrow kids.

4PA is going to start reading The Secret Garden this week! I love this book and am excited to begin reading with the kids. In the 4PA Google classroom there are a few new items that we will be using as we read. This week, we will begin to explore the moors and try to tolerate Mary! The kids will be taking notes on four characters as they read for a project we will be working on when we finish the novel. There is a link to an audio version of the novel under students resources on this website.

5PA will spend this week reading inaugural poems by Robert Frost, Maya Angelou, and Amanda Gorman. We will be extracting the theme of each poem and discussing how each poem sheds light on what was going on in our country when each was written. Copies of all three poems are in the 5PA Google classroom along with a tool we will use to analyze the texts.
