All late work is due this Sunday. If you want to improve your grade, be sure to complete any work that is marked with an orange square! Then email me.
We will finish iReady testing in class so please keep your headphones with you for the rest of this week.
Today you have 3 assignments.
- Read Chapter 9 of Island of the Blue Dolphins HERE (if the link doesn’t work just google Island of the Blue Dolphins ebook) then plan your comic page three (chapters 7-9) in your journal. Follow these instructions for each chapter/comic strip:
- Chapter 7:(Use the quote and summary we found together below)
-- Quote: At that moment I walked across the deck and, though many hands tried to hold me back, flung myself into the sea.
-- Summary: The Ghalas-at tribe boards the white boat, however Karana notices that Ramo is not on board. Then she sees him on the island so she dives off the boat.
-- Sketch your picture idea.
- Chapter 8:
-- Review what I read to you yesterday and find a good quote (REMEMBER it does NOT have to be words that are spoken, just a sentence that explains what happens in the author’s own words.) and write a summary of the chapter (use your own words). Then sketch your picture.
- Chapter 9:
