I am very excited to see my students present their family tree this week! But I am also excited to announce that we (6th – 8th) will begin reading a chapter book starting next week. I will be focusing on one chapter every two weeks to help students with their reading, speaking, and listening skills as well as expanding their vocabulary outside of the units that we focus on every 3 weeks.
The first book we will begin reading is called Pobre Ana written by Blaine Ray. Pobre Ana is the story of a California girl who learns to appreciate her family after staying with a family in Mexico over the summer.
I have attached the link to each Chapter below. The students will be responsible for reading each chapter at home and coming to class prepared. I will assign them worksheets to assess their understanding of the material and we will also go over it in class. At times, we will also read together as class and follow the audio version of the book to help with their listening skills.
