    Good morning, friends!  As always, please head to Google Classroom for all the details and links needed for today's assignments.

    LA - Listen to Episodes 31, 32, & 33 of the Six Minutes Podcast, and complete an activity slide.  The first slide shared with you explains a little about FORESHADOWING, and you will examine a page from the Six Minutes script.  The second slide has you writing a summary for a NEW EPISODE that would come next.  It should make sense for what was heard in the episodes you just listened to.  You are not actually writing a whole episode, just a summary.  Think creatively!  These should be submitted directly through the classwork tab on Google Classroom.  Then, it's time to learn a bit about MOOD and TONE in writing.  You will:  Watch a Brain Pop video, Watch a second video on You Tube, and listen to chapters 31 & 32 of Maniac Magee being read aloud.  You will need to respond to the chapters in your Reader's Notebook, so make sure you follow along with the video so you know how to respond.  Don't forget to take a picture of your work, and move it into your LA folder!

    SS - Today you need to finish up your Creation Story draft, and move it into your LA folder.  Please watch today's video for some tips.  I have also included a link to the rubric for your reference.  Then, continue to study for Thursday's ancient Egypt quiz.  I reposted the link for Quizlet, and also shared a slideshow review that you could do on your own, or with someone at home!

    Today is a Zoom day for Language Arts and Social Studies:  5IM:  10 - 10:30 am; and 5T:  10:45 - 11:15 am.  I will post the URL link for each meeting in your LA Google Classroom about 15 minutes before the meeting.

    Fifth graders, don't forget you have Chorus today, so check Mr. Hess' page for any assignments he'd like you to do.

    Have a wonderful day!
