Poetry Out Loud is coming up so make sure you've signed up for a poem on the correct sheet in my classroom. The performance days are September 11 & 15 (Orange) or September 12 & 16 (Black). When it gets closer to the day, we'll draw numbers to determine your day.
Today we took our first vocabulary test and finished reading Beowulf. Our Beowulf Test is on Monday, August 25th (Orange) and Tuesday, August 26th (Black).
Things to pay attention to in the reading today:
1. Descriptions of weapons and their origins.
2. Prayers of thanks when they are triumphant.
3. The symbolism of dragons in western literature (they represent GREED)
Plan for the day:
