For today, I'm going to have you watch a BrainPOP video about reading. It will give you lots of tips about ways to improve your reading comprehension. When you are finished watching the video, take the quiz, and see how you do. Then go to your reading Google document, and tell me 3 tips you learned from the video about improving reading comprehension.

Now it's time to take notes on A Long Walk to Water. Remember to do a great job on your summaries. You can use them to take the quiz at the end of the book. :)



















Continue working on your vocabulary log. Remember to choose one of the following choices. 

1. You can make your own vocabulary log with paper. Be sure to include the word, definition, a sentences using your word, and a picture of your word.

2. You can create a document that includes all 10 words to share with me. You can type your word, the definition, a sentence using your word, and you can use clipart for the picture of your word. 

Have fun learning the next set of words. We will have a quiz on them in a few weeks. 

Today's Word: 

presume- suppose that something is the case on the basis of probability


This week we are going to review simple, compound, and complex sentences. Follow the link below to get a review of each of these sentence structures. I hope you enjoy the British accent! :D

On your Grammar/Writing Google doc, create at least two of your own examples of simple, compound, and complex sentences. I have included an example of what your docement should look like below. (As I'm sure you know, you cannot use my examples or the examples that were in the video.) wink
