'Tequila Worm' and the 100 Word Challenge

Will Berta and Sofia be able to transform what they find at Johnson's 
Ropa Usada into dresses good enough to wear to Saint Luke's? Find out today.

 Today's Learning Objectives  (1.) Write narratives to develop real or imagined experiences or events using effective technique, relevant descriptive details, and well-structured event sequences. (2.) Describe how a particular story’s plot unfolds in a series of episodes as well as how the characters respond or change as the plot moves toward a resolution.

Guided Reading: Tequila Worm  Today we will finish reading the chapter "Five 'New' Dresses" (pgs. 92 - 101) of Tequila Worm. As we read, we will stop periodically to discuss the text and, if time permits, work on the guiding questions from our 'The Tequila Worm' Reading Guide (Week 3). We will also continue to add to our Story Plot Chart ('Tequila Worm').

100 Word Challenge: 'The Silence Was Deafening'  Considering this is a short week and that we are publishing tomorrow, it's imperative that we make progress on this week's 100 Word Challenge.
