This week we continued working on Al Capone Does Our Shirts among our small groups. We learned a new strategy to analyze characters. In this strategy we utilized the acronym FAST (feelings, actions, says and thoughts) to help us dig deep into the main characters that we’ve met in the book. Ask your child how to use this strategy when talking about characterization.
Please help make sure that your child has their novel with them each day for class. This is a crucial part of their participation in class.
