Welcome back and happy 2018! This week we kicked off the new year by doing some reading and research to build up some background knowledge before starting our next novel study, Al Capone Does My Shirts. In preparation we read a short nonfiction story called “Escape from Alcatraz” and watched a short video about the mystery behind their escape. Students are also in the middle of completing an Alcatraz webquest to learn more about the infamous prison and it’s inmates. We are all very excited to start our historical fiction book next week and students will be receiving their copy of the book by the end of the week. Additionally, we will be taking our middle of the year MAP reading test during our reading period on Wednesday. Please remind your child to take their time while taking this test.
