What's Happening? May 24- May 28

Reading

6th graders have begun reading In the Year of the Boar and Jackie Robinson (ITYOTBAJR). It is 1947 during which two important events happen: First, 6th cousin, Bandit, or Shirley Temple Wong, moves to America from China, and Second, Jackie Robinson brings his baseball talents to Major League baseball. This independent read is accompanied by some vocabulary, questions, and other interactive opportunities. May 26 is the due date to have the book completed.

We are also learning the Lord's Prayer in a language of their choosing. Due date: May 28.
