Between classes, students will:
1. Read (or listen to) the assigned reading chapters before each class discussion. A reading guide will be provided to help with comprehension and preparation.
2. Complete the provided grammar practice worksheets to reinforce the grammar material
3. Complete various writing tasks
A copy of "Gooney Bird Greene" by Lois Lowry "Mr Popper's Penguins" by Richard and Florence Atwater A notebook or folder to keep assignments and worksheets Pen or pencil and paper for jotting notes or writing important thoughts A writing journal for writing practice and brainstorming Occasional simple craft materials (colored pencils, markers, etc) These will be noted in class and in the classroom the week before they are needed.
Parents may contact me to discuss any requests for grades or for completion verification.
1 hour 40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
All literature is chosen from a generally recognized collection of age-appropriate, often award-winning, books. Parents are encouraged to research any unfamiliar books to be sure they are appropriate for their learner. 

Here is a synopsis for the two books in this unit:
Gooney Bird Greene by Lois Lowry: "From the moment Gooney Bird Greene arrives at school, her fellow students are intrigued by her unique sense of style and her unusual lunches. Through Gooney Bird and her interesting and “absolutely true” tales, acclaimed author Lois Lowry introduces young readers to the concepts and elements of storytelling....This book will encourage the storyteller in everyone."  (publisher book summary)

Mr Popper's Penguins:  "The Poppers unexpectedly come into possession of a penguin, then get a penguin from the zoo who mates with the first penguin to have 10 baby penguins. Before long, something must be done before they eat the Poppers out of house and home!  A classic of American humor, this story of a gentle housepainter and his high stepping penguins has delighted children for generations." (publisher book summary)
