Grade 4: Monday and Tuesday: We have been reading and analyzing Patricia Polacco books in class to help us become stronger writers. For homework read a Patricia Polacco book of your choice and complete worksheet: Write a summary/ give examples of writing skills you notice Patricia uses. Wednesday and Thursday replicate above assignment with a different P.P. book.
Grade 5: Your child will choose a biography of a famous person on Monday. Please read the biography, complete the brainstorm, write a one page (3 or 4 paragraph) report on your famous person and do a cover. (This is very similar to the homework reports done in 4th grade, but the book is much longer.)This assignment will not be due until February 7 (2 weeks)
