'Tequila Worm' and a New 100 Word Challenge

Some strange things are taking place in the Tequila Worm. Could the 'canicula' be to blame? 




















 Today's Learning Objectives  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.  Write narratives to develop real or imagined experiences or events using effective technique, relevant descriptive details, and well-structured event sequences.  


Guided Reading: Tequila Worm  Today we read the chapter "The Canicula" (pgs. 112-124) 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').

Introducing a New 100 Word Challenge  This week we have another picture challenge. Check out the directions and image below. 









Apparently a "settee" is another name for a sofa or a couch. Regardless of what you call it, there are endless possibilities for a story here. Study the picture carefully and start crafting an imaginative and creative story using the document 100 Word Challenge: Picture Challenge (Week 23), which you can find in your Language Arts folders. 

Homework  (1.) Read your A.R. book at home for at least 30 minutes and make a Digital Reading Log entry using the 3rd Quarter Reading Log(2.) Continue working on your 100 Word Challenge: Picture Challenge (Week 23) story, which we will publish on Friday, February 27.  (3.) Continue working on 'The Tequila Worm' Reading Guide (Week 3), which will be due on Friday, February 27
