This month: Surviving the Applewhites

posted Mar 2, 2016, 1:11 AM by Jason Brunken
This month the Grade 6 class will be wrapping up the novel we have been reading on Fridays this year. The kids have really enjoyed this tale about discovering passion and talent and how it is often not what you think it will be. What's the book? Surviving the Applewhites by Stephanie Tolan. We have 12 short chapters remaining in the novel and hope to finish next week. So this week and next will be dedicated to finishing the reading, practicing vocabulary from the book, our usual grammar and spelling practice, as well as some reading and writing response activities that I know the kids will enjoy. 

We will wrap up the month with a very large and important project. The kids will design an original website that summarizes, analyzes, and extends the novel. These websites will be an awesome learning experience for the kids and will be on display at the ASLA Student Expo in April. 

Below is the handout for this unit where the vocabulary, spelling, an grammar focus information can be found for these next two weeks.
