Class Name: Literature 2

This week’s focus: Getting to you know you!

Welcome to an exciting year of reading great classics ahead. I am a learner just like you, having never read many of these books before. We will begin with a few short stories to get us started to review the story chart. Rest easy until Monday where I hope to meet many of you face to face, where I will have a small package for you.

In preparation for Schole support class:

Read the year plans posted and locate the book, 100 Great Short Stories, where we will dive into our first short story. The book looks overwhelming, but I picked a short enjoyable fairytale to get us started. That’s it!

To be completed this week:

A biographical poem so that I can get to know you a bit better! Zoom will be challenging to get to know you so this will give me a few ideas of your hobbies and interests. A sample will be provided at the picnic or you can reference the format ahead of time in the RESOURCES section.

ENRICHMENT – Extra resources for children and families who desire more
If you are eager to get reading, begin with the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn as some nighttime reading.

THIS MONTH’S ASSIGNMENT FOR SUBMISSION:
