Novel: The Hobbti by JRR Tolkien
This week’s focus: THE HOBBIT
In preparation for Schole support class:
Enjoy reading the book. Please get to at least chapter 12 for class. This might seem like a lot but we are working to finish the book and work before the break in February.
PLEASE BRING A QUOTE TO CLASS THAT YOU ENJOY FROM THE HOBBIT and put it in your commonplace book. Be ready to share.
This is a participation activity. IF you don’t know what to look for, use the literary devices from Grammar of Poetry to guide: look for pun, personification, simile, metaphor, synecdoche.
Keep highlighting and marking your work for evidence of Bilbo’s character.
EVIDENCE—is what someone says or does. It can be what Bilbo says or does or what another character says or does to/in response to Bilbo.
I am going to post some google docs
1. The HOBBIT- a character study that you are working on. I will update mine. You could see what I am doing and how some chapters may have few or many ideas.
2. READING GEMS—I don’t know what else to call this but I will “commonplace” on google documents so you can see what I am enjoying along the way. This is merely for your perusal, there is NO REQUIRED work from this. I might add some musings too.
3. OUTLINE for final paragraphs. I will create some sample formats for how to organize your thoughts for the final paragraph assignment.
To be completed this week:
A. READ! 😊 Maybe you can have “second breakfast” as you read…. Have a highlighter on hand, or sticky notes to mark quotes that stick out to you.
B. Work on Grammar of Poetry module V : synecdoche. Simile, metaphor, pun, personification, synecdoche
ENRICHMENT – Extra resources for children and families who desire more
A bio poem on a character from the book==Biblo has a lot of material
THIS MONTH’S ASSIGNMENT FOR SUBMISSION:
WORK on the Character chart. Your chart is your January submission.
Think about the questions at the top of the Character chart. What question seems like you could answer it best?
An outline template will be given in class.
Your paragraphs are due before the family week break
