    Week of 5/4 assignments are posted on google classroom. An overview of the week is below taken from my google classroom page. class code HVVan7x

    This week you will read the the poem below "Sipping the Sunset" and answer some questions about the poem. Please take your time and give thoughtful answers. Remember to use a restate to begin your response and support your answers with good text evidence.
    Day 1 Read the poem "Sipping the Sunset" and answer questions 1 and 2 about the poem on the google doc below.
    Day 2 reread the poem and answer questions 3 and 4 about the poem on the google doc below.

Once you click on the link below you will be able to read the text from the "The Story Tab" or you can click on the "Resources tab" and there you will be able to listen to the text as well. It would be best to read and listen to both texts before beginning to answer any questions.

    Week of May 18th 

    You can access our google classroom with code HVVAN7X   There you will find additional information as well as a video on making inferences.

    This week I assigned articles on You can access this site by logging in through google as you did for "Casey at the Bat". All articles chosen this week have a focus on Making Inferences. We infer every time we read and answer questions but I thought this short video would be a good refresher to watch. You will have the ability to read and listen to each text posted.
