This Week: The Hero and the Minotaur

posted Mar 8, 2014, 7:59 AM by Jason Brunken
This week in Grade 6, we will be exploring Ancient Greece as we read a version of the well-known Greek myth "Theseus and the Minotaur" called The Hero and the Minotaur. This class is really interested in Ancient Greece and their stories of gods and heroes. I hope they enjoy this week's reading. If you are not familiar with the story of Theseus and the Minotaur, take a minute to read more here or watch this video.

The class's websites are nearing completion. The kids have worked really hard on them the past two weeks. I am giving the class a couple more weeks to polish them on their own time before posting the URLs here. They will be ready to show at conference time.

We have grammar, spelling, and writing this week as well. I will be preparing the class to write expository essays this week. There will be a spelling test on Friday so please remember to review the spelling words. The weekly handout is posted for your convenience below.
