Hello, class. I miss you and wish you well. Here are your assignments for this week:

Monday

Choose a book to read for a final book report. Now that we are not meeting by ZOOM, I can’t ask you what you are reading and hear your response. So, choose a book you have or borrow one from a friend. There are also free books inside the door of the elementary side of Ivy Hawn. Ask your mom or dad to stop by and get one if you don’t have any books. Call the school first to make sure someone is there to open the door.

Send me your title on REMIND for me to know what you are reading and approve it. I will be asking you to read on Tuesdays and Thursdays. You will write a book report that is due May 8.

Watch the two videos about FROZEN, the Broadway Musical. Notice the details and hard work it takes to produce a production like this.

Our vocabulary words this week are:

frantic – wild with fear, panic-stricken

gracious – courteous, kind, and pleasant

gourmet – a person who knows and loves a variety of good foods that have been exquisitely prepared.

Tuesday –

Read 30 minutes in your book report book. If you don’t have a book, spend this time finding a book.
