Reading~ Wonders

We have begun Charlotte's Web!  I have loved seeing the excited on the students faces!  It's amazing to see the students come alive as readers and full-heartedly jump into a story. 

I will have a copy of the book for each student.  We will be reading on average about 4 chapters a week.  Most of the reading will be done in class; however if a student falls behind or is absent, they will be able to take a copy of the book home to catch up.

Due to the short week last week, we will focus on chapters 6-9 this week.

Comprehension Strategy/skill~ Point of View

History~ Civil War

The students have me in 'awe'.  This has been an amazing couple of weeks, learning about slavery and the Civil War, and there's still more to come! The students have fully immersed themselves in the content.  They are curious, thinking, connecting, and asking questions.  I absolutely LOVE our discussions during History.  I love to hear their thoughts, ideas, and passions.  It's truly wonderful.

In this unit students will explore and learn: 

  • • Controversy over slavery
    • Harriet Tubman, the “underground railroad”
    • Northern v. Southern states: Yankees and Rebels
    • Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee
    • Clara Barton, “Angel of the Battlefield,” founder of American Red Cross

    • Emancipation Proclamation and the end of slavery 
  • Link the to underground railway song that the slaves sang:  The Drinking Gourd Song
