Spring break is finally in sight! We are still doing instruction though up until the end since each day is important. We are now entering our test prep phase of the year. However, we feel that the best test prep is to keep teaching and reviewing strategies. Students also need to be reading to continue building stamina.
And that is what we did today. Students read two folktale stories, one African and one Native American, in which a character is a trickster. Students then wrote down which one they liked best and explained why using an excerpt from the text.
