Hey Kiddos! This week we learned about simple plot structure and how to apply the elements/terms to stories we read. After reading “The Stray” and “Ghost of the Lagoon”, you had the opportunity to apply your knowledge of plot structure to these stories. By doing this, you worked on one of our ELA standards: Identify evidence from text to support conclusions. The ability to use this standard will prove helpful next week when we start our “Ghost of the Lagoon” plot project.
We also discussed the idea of a theme in a story and discovered that themes are applicable to many parts of life. I hope you had fun setting up your private portfolio on Seesaw. I look forward to giving you opportunities to add more to it this year! Keep reading!
