I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend! It was good to see so many of you at school yesterday, working hard on perfecting your math and reading skills before the big test coming up in two weeks. I’m really excited for all of you to find out about the “deal” all the teachers will be making with you guys tomorrow… the reward is pretty awesome for you guys! 🙂 I won’t give any more hints.
This Saturday, we worked on character analysis, asking ourselves what each character was thinking and feeling in the passages we read. It seemed to help retell, in our own words, what the characters were experiencing BEFORE examining answer choices. So, in the spirit of test prep, let’s do the same thing today…
CRITERIA FOR SUCCESS:
1. Username. Title. Author.
2. This weekend, I read __________ pages.
3. Summarize what is going on in your book right now. This should take at least 5 sentences.
4. In a new paragraph, tell me about your character. What kind of person is he/she? Describe his/her physical and emotional characteristics. What does he/she care about? What does he/she think about? Worry about? Want? Need? This should take at least 5 sentences as well. Really explain who this person is, examining the themes in the story as well. What were the author’s intentions with this character?
Good luck, happy reading and happy blogging!
