Welcome back from Spring Break! I hope you are all well-rested and ready for this next intense month before you take your state ELA and math exams. It’s going to be a lot of work, but your practice, your patience and your efforts will be rewarded if you try your very best. I just know this year’s test results will be as amazing as last year’s!
Tonight, let’s keep it simple. After you’ve read for 35 minutes, please complete this post, following the Criteria for Success.
CRITERIA FOR SUCCESS:
1. Username. Title. Author.
2. I read __________ pages tonight.
3. Summarize what you read this evening in 3-5 sentences. I’m looking for a minimum of 3 sentences, beware!
4. Describe the setting and the characters in your book. Tell me what kind of place this is. Tell me what kind of person your character is. Use as many test-like character words as you can. (ie – determined, self-conscious, snobbish, ambitious, anxious, gloomy, etc. — Please keep in mind, this is NOT the whole list. This is just an example.) Use an example from the text to prove that the trait you chose is correct.
Happy reading and happy blogging!
