Today we graded the vocabulary workbook.  I am quite proud of the vocabulary the students demonstrated in their last writing project. Well done. 

We started reading the myth of Phaethon, son of Apollo and Mr. Croy read aloud the first chapter of the great mythology book, Heroes, Myths, and Monsters.  We will soon create flashcards on these mythological characters to study. 

We have finished chapter four of the Lightning Thief, but we still have a few activities to complete on the chapters. We will hopefully be through chapter 5 by the weekend. 

Students continue to work on their preposition projects. 

We are still focusing on the Common Core Standard of identifying inferences and main ideas, and locating supporting details.
