We continued reading today, and finished (or nearly finished) Chapter 3 of The Outsiders. We began working on worksheets that will enable us to have thoughtful discussions about the book in our Literature Circles this Thursday, May 31st. We will continue working on these worksheets in class tomorrow, and if completed, will continue with our Character Analysis worksheets. No homework was assigned.
The opening activity today was a vocabulary practice worksheet that had all the words’ sentences (vocab words were omitted) from the novel Whirligig. Next, students read the 3rd chapter, “The Afterlife,” independently, and were to write a summary with given terms. This is an important chapter in the book—we’ll discuss it during our next class session.
Two vocabulary exercises are due on Friday, June1.
