We have BLOCK SCHEDULE TUESDAY-FRIDAY! Here is a breakdown of what we are doing this week:

Monday: 

Freshmen -

Today we are reading chapters 1 & 2 and taking notes on types of characters using information on the board. It helps to label sticky notes with the names of the characters (below) and tab pages that have good descriptions of each character. We also created an organizer with 4 headings so we can fill them out as we read on white lined paper. The organizer is as follows:

SIDE ONE

TKAM Characters           Description

1. Scout: a 6 year old  stubborn&nurturing
