Week of September 13-17

This is an exciting week because we are starting our Africa unit! We are reading Facing the Lion by Joseph Lekuton, a memoir about his life growing up on the Kenyan savanna. Students will complete journals and hold discussions as we read the book.

Students are also analyzing the different aspects of Africa’s geography and completing a map and questions about the continent.

Finally, students will have their first Reading Log to complete at home, using an independently chosen book (fiction, non-fiction, poetry, graphic novel, short stories, etc.).

I am impressed so far with the attitude and work of the students so far! I look forward to the week ahead!
