Reading for the Week
Well we obviously start with reading the book. We read it several times while we complete many activities with it!
- We visualize different parts of the story before actually reading the entire story
- We do many vocabulary activities to practice rigorous words from the story and end with a quiz
- We work with figurative language with four different fun activities
- We make a character trait graffiti wall and do an acting activity
- We do a theme close read
- We do a point of view comparison
- And of course we take a comprehension quiz
Writing is my favorite this time of year! For this unit we do SO much fun writing.
- We use imagery writing to write about Christmas morning after analyzing imagery writing in the story
- We do letters to Santa at a higher level
- We write a compare and contrast essay with the book vs. the movie
For social studies we talk about geography first. The students create their own world and color each content according to the climate that continent has! Then, we research the history of trains and create a timeline to show the history.
For science we start with researching a polar region and creating a presentation on it. Then, we do an experiment with different types of sounds. Lastly, we look into bells and how they work!
