It's Getting Hot in 'Tequila Worm'

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.


Literacy Warm-Up   Happy Monday! Enjoy some literacy warm-up time to start the day! Read a book, take an A.R. quiz, read an article at Newsela, check for writing feedback at Kidblog, or write a quality Digital Reading Log entry. Let's continue to strive to become the very best readers and writers we can be!

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').

Homework  (1.) Read your A.R. book at home for at least 30 minutes and, if you choose, make a reading log entry using the Digital Reading Log. (Remember you must have made at least one entry by the end of the day Friday.) (2.) Continue working on your 'The Tequila Worm' Reading Guide (Week 3), which will be due Friday, March 4.
