The first big assignment of the year is part of our “Reading Road Trip” journey,and September’s focus is realistic fiction and non-fiction reading. The students were assigned finding a newspaper article that interested them, and then writing a summary. The second part of the assignment was to read a realistic fiction book (no page number minimum was required). The “one-pager” assignment is due on or before September 28. The “one-pager” includes a drawing, a paragraph summary, and one quote from the book that the student thinks demonstrates the meaning of the theme of the book.
Remember –everyone must turn this in to earn points towards the class’ “Freaky Fridays.”
