Students were given a spelling worksheet, with a twist, for homework. The first part of the sheet is the usual list of words with sentences to write. The second part is the twist. The words are from our next class novel “Island of the Blue Dolphins”. We have read together the first chapter. The spelling words come from the first seven chapters of the book. At the bottom of the second page of the sheet, students are asked to use the words to “predict” the main event(s) in the next seven chapters! A nice way to get them thinking and engaging with the book. It’s due to be returned on Monday.
