1. We collected and read aloud some of the formal complaint Christmas letters that students wrote for homework. Be on the look out for sample letters posted soon.
2. We then read the first two pages of the short story, A Horse and Two Goats. We annotated the story together and then compiled information on a diagram that looked the like the following:
(a) features of the setting
(b) information given about Muni
3. Students were to draw a map of the village of Kritam and surrounding features mentioned in the text. As each class finished their prep work for the writing, the 15 minutes of writing time to complete the summary will be done for each section differently, as indicated below:
Section 1 - done in class
Section 2 - done at home, self timed
Section 3 - will be done during next class.
