PA for the Week of 11-29

 3PA will arrive on planet Shine this week in The Green Book. What is this new world like? What resources are available? What will new homes on Shine look like? What is the soil like? Can the colonists successfully farm the land? Is Shine safe? To follow along with what we are working on, check out the hyperdoc in Google Classroom. My plan is to get through the end of chapter 5 this week.

4PA will begin the week learning more about figurative language. The kids will focus on finding examples of  several types of figurative language in The Secret Garden. We will spend the week with metaphors, similes, hyperbole, allusion, personification, and imagery within the walls of the garden and Misslethwaite Manor. By the end of the week, students need to be at the beginning of chapter 11. 
5PA will begin the week going through the organizer for the TED Talk we are working on about a young person who was a catalyst for change in the world. The kids will be completing their research this week, and organizing their notes using the structure provided on the organizer/outline for the final presentations.
