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 "The Chalk Box Kid" by Clyde Robert Bulla "Charlotte's Web" by E.B. White 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 needs for grades or 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:
The Chalk Box Kid: "A new neighborhood. A new school. A lonely birthday. Life isn’t easy for nine-year-old Gregory. Then he finds an abandoned chalk factory behind his house. It’s a secret place, just for him! Now he can draw anything he imagines on the dark brick walls. What amazing thing will Gregory draw first? Readers will identify with Gregory's sense of loss - and with his joy at exploring a "secret" place and making it his own. His story should encourage budding artists, and is a wonderful opening for discussions of independence."

Charlotte's Web: "Charlotte's spiderweb tells of her feelings for a little pig named Wilbur, who simply wants a friend. They also express the love of a girl named Fern, who saved Wilbur's life when he was born the runt of his litter. E. B. White's Newbery Honor Book is a tender novel of friendship, love, life, and death that will continue to be enjoyed by generations to come. This beloved book by E. B. White is a classic of children's literature that is "just about perfect."
