We will also be reading The Giving Tree, by Shel Silverstein, to introduce words to describe the appearance of characters as well as their feelings and actions throughout the story. Students will then compare and contrast the characters and learn to map the plot.

Simple Past Tense
This week students continue learning and applying the simple past tense of regular and irregular verbs. We will complete a small project where they will apply what they have learned about verbs, including the verb "be," into an illustrated book, poster, etc. They will show the present and simple past of the verbs studied in class and create a sentence for each one. There will be a quiz about simple past tense of verbs on Friday.
