Monday: Today students went to the computer lab and took their AR test (if they had not already taken it) and started a web quest on Fairy Tales.
Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday: We will continue to work on the web quest. This involves the students working in pairs. They will read 8 of the 15 Fairy Tales listed. They will identify common themes in each. After they have read the Fairy Tales, they will write an original tale using three of the common themes.
Friday: We will take a quiz on Folk Lore today. The students need to study the notes from our power point and our handout on Why We Share Stories. They will also read a folk tale and answer questions about it. This is just a 30 point quiz.
Benchmarks begin next week. The literature benchmark is Tuesday. We will review on Monday. Below you will find the review sheet if you want to start working on it now.
