Mrs. J's Reading

        We do a lot of fun stuff in reading that you might want to know about. First, we have Latin and/or Greek roots. In Latin and Greek roots we have papers with trees on them, and we have a base that is a root. Then, we have multiple words and we need to find the definition, and a sentence to go along with it. Recently, we had our second trees test. Our trees test was about all the Latin and Greek roots that we have been studying and their definitions. We also are reading Holes by Louis Sachar and the book is about holes. In Holes the protagonist is a boy named Stanley Yelnats, and the antagonist is a lot of things such as Camp Green Lake, the warden, and Mr. Sir. With Holes we also get a packet that we need to do in a certain amount of time and then turn it in. We always do a lot of vocabulary like the words protagonist and antagonist. Mrs. Jacobson always makes us do vocabulary because she says that the more words we know it will help us in life. We just handed in our Homeless project. That is when you have to search up on the web and find facts about the homeless. Well as you see we do a lot of very fun stuff in reading.
