Since I am introducing text structure this week, we will spend the week learning about the attack on Pearl Harbor and WWII through texts that use cause/effect, problem/solution, and description. We’ll start out by watching FDR’s famous address to Congress and spend a few moments meeting Dale and Johnie Gauno (on Scholastic) who witness the attack.
my kids for their Top 10 favorite war books. Each table worked together and
made a top 20 list. We compromised, and I choose a top 15 list….This is how 5th grade works. I say 10. They say 20. We
compromise on 15. Anyways, here are our favorite war books. If wanted to read
only two of these books, I would choose Shooting the Moon and Shadow.
Incredible, incredible books.
Friends, I hope you have a wonderful
evening! I’ll see you tomorrow and share with you all the goodies on my TPTshopping list! 🙂
