A Rainy yet Busy day.

Although we were bombarded this morning with rain from Tropical Storm Isaac, we persevered and everything went smoothly. Today we began working on academic and literary vocabulary for our next story, "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings," by Maya Angelou.

Homework is due on Wednesday as we will be in Computer Lab 3 tomorrow completing our first District Assessment for Reading on Discovery Education.

Homework is: To use the Frayer diagram below on the following literary words. These words can be found in your Literature textbook at the bottom of the corresponding pages. Remember pictures must be in color.

Pg. 31-

  • Fiscal
  • Taut
  • Infuse
  • Intolerant
  • Couched
Pg. 34-

  • Aristocrat
Pg. 37-
