We will continue to read Esperanza Rising. We will review when we come back from break. We will then pick up and continue to read the story. We will be working on vocabulary, comprehension, setting, and characters. In English we will continue to work on helping verbs as well as our recently learned direct and indirect objects. Our work will be both out of our English books as well as from the Shurley Method.
We are currently working on Colonization in Texas. We will have a quiz over sections 3 and 4 this Thursday and a chapter test over sections 1, 2, 3, & 4 on Thursday, December 17th, 2009. Please make sure that your students are studying nightly over ALL sections of their lap book. As you know, this is a nightly assignment and helps them bring the information into their long term memory. When we return in January we will begin discussing the Texas Revolution.
