We bring this week to a close and we have one week to go until the Wax Museum.
What we focused on today in literacy was comparing and contrasting similar themes in two different stories. Of course, I went over what comparing and contrasting are first. Comparing means to look for what things have in common. A contrast is that which is different.

We then continued to review the three types of point of view: 1st person (the narrator is a character, usually the main character); 2nd person (the narrator is speaking to the reader; 3rd person (the narrator is not a part of the story.
We also discussed what comparing and contrasting are. A comparison is that which things are in common while a contrast is what is different.
Students then did a practice activity:
In science, students did a Nearpod presentation at their own pace.
