Dive in, and kick off Dark Day in the Deep Sea today! Your crew will assemble a flip book to cover standards this week, gain background information about the HMS Challenger, learn about their new skills and vocabulary, and begin the novel.
The journey begins! The students embark on a journey of understanding how a novel builds as they meet characters and are introduced to the setting in chapters 1-3 in The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane.
The journey continues! The students learn and practice skills about understanding how a novel builds, summary writing, and comprehension questions as they read chapters 4-6 in The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane.
Time to check for the little, but important details. Are the beginning of your sentences and capital nouns capitalized? Sentences punctuated? Words spelled correctly? Does your piece make sense to a reader? How about your t's and i's? Crossed and dotted?
You're full speed ahead as your crew reads chapter four and five in Dark Day in the Deep Sea. They'll show and share what they know about asking and answering questions and character traits and emotions in their flip book.
