Today in class we discussed greek mythology!

We spent some time discussing the oral tradition of these myths and why they existed. We then spent some time discussing the creation of the myths.

We will study specific myths in our independent books students so students can learn more about their specific god or goddess that exists within their book.

 

Homework:

2nd hour: Summer reading essay due on Friday!

ALL classes: Read 20 minutes minimum to prepare for your realistic fiction book talk.

 

I found  a really great picture to help share why reading 20 minutes a night is so important:

 

Reading 20 minutes

 

You can see that by reading at least 20 minutes a night student A was exposed to almost 7 times as many words which will continue to build students vocabulary and help to make them more successful in school! Reading is pretty powerful!
