One of our goals in fifth grade this year will be to analyze a character’s traits and compose text describing the character. To introduce this concept, the fifth grade classes at DES analyzed the traits of famous Disney characters from current hit shows. The students loved this activity. The group activity led the students into analyzing the main character from our lesson one story. Students will take their completed graphic organizers and compose a paragraph describing the character’s traits, motivations, and actions.
This week we have a lesson one test on Wednesday.
This week’s homework:
Monday – Happy Labor Day
Tuesday – Study for test and finish writing character description if student did not finish in class.
Wednesday – Begin reading the lesson two story, “Line Drive.”
Thursday – Read story and study the information on your lesson study guide.
Friday – Read story and study the information on your lesson study guide.
