Preparing the Learner Activity: Tequila Worm  Happy Monday and welcome to a new week of Tequila Worm! You can find your new 'The Tequila Worm' Reading Guide (Week 4) in your Language Arts Google Classroom. To help us get "into" the text this week, we will begin with a 'Preparing the Learner Activity,' in which you will be asked to reflect on some of your own experiences relative to topics we will be exploring in this week's reading. As the week progresses, you will compare and/or contrast your experiences with those of Sofia.



Guided Reading: Tequila Worm  Today we read the chapter "Saints at Saint Luke's" (pgs. 136-147) 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 4). 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.) Complete your 'The Tequila Worm' Reading Guide (Week 3), which will be due Friday, March 4. (3.)
