Lesson 11 will be the homework in TWO parts, one assigned to be completed after this class and before next, the second part will be worked on next class. If you have questions or concerns please email me. **
In preparation for Schole support class:
P115-117 Read through THE GREAT FIRE IN ROME AD 64 x2
Highlight fact in one colour
Highlight opinion in another
TELL IT BACK—this is a good skill to practice. Remind your student about this before reading so they can practice retelling the story back to you.
And then complete p 117
WEDNESDAY ZOOM CLASS we will complete
Go Deeper p 118-120
P 130-131 FACT AND OPINION
*If you are comfortable sharing on zoom, you may share your summary of the Great Fire from page 129
To be completed this week:
TALK ABOUT IT, WRITING TIME of Chapter 8
Read the start of Chapter 11. Historical Fiction. Read p 176-177 and START P 181-185 but only after considering this:
The book suggests a Roman based story. This is a good option as there is a lot of information on that p 177-181. However, if your student is not keen, the other option is any other story that has been covered this year in History with Ms Monica. The alternative to the Roman story is more challenging as it requires more researching on your own, however if you have read an excellent read aloud or picture book about a history person we have studied, then that would be helpful. Examples would be Harriet Tubman, David Livingston, William Wilberforce…
ENRICHMENT – Extra resources for children and families who desire more
P131 Amplification The Destruction of Pompeii
