Help me give my students the opportunity to do our very first novel study! We are studying Greek mythology and they are already so intrigued by this novel, even though I've only read the first 5 pages!
My students are a fun-loving and energetic group this year! They are eager to learn and get excited to learn! We are a literacy classroom only in the DeCarlo world, so we spend a lot of our time diving into books and letting them take us to places unimaginable! We work daily to ensure that reading is a privilege and not a chore! I want my students to enjoy reading and all that literacy can offer them.
We strive every day to grow as readers and writers.
This group makes sure to push themselves to do their best every single day. It truly is an honor to be with this group every single day!
This quarter we are studying Greek mythology. They will be able to put their love of reading to use as we dive deep into this text and squeeze every ounce of meaning that we can out of it! Students will be using The Lightning Theif to study character development, symbolism, and Greek mythology. Students will be creating their own summaries of the Greeks gods and goddesses, making trading cards for them and teaching their peers about them. It is my goal that my students begin to see that these myths are more than just fiction. They are incorporated into our everyday lives.
