Friday's Lessons

Sorry I can't be at school today, but never fear. Thanks to the wonders of technology, I CAN be here with you! Down below you will see a video for each class. It includes the day's read aloud and directions and maybe some links as well. Watch your grade's video, follow the directions, and I will see you all on Tuesday.

Fourth and Fifth Graders, these videos might not load on an iPod. You might need to use a computer or laptop. Sixth grade, your video and links will be no problem on an iPod.

Fourth Grade:

Here is the final chapters of The Fabled Fourth Graders of Aesop Elementary School. After you've listened to the read aloud, you may silently read.

Sixth Grade:

Here is a video of the real Ivan. Watch the video, then read the articles linked below. There are additional instructions at the end of the Sixth Grade section, below the links.

Here is some brief information about the real Ivan from Katherine Applegate, author of The One and Only Ivan. Click here.

This is Ivan's official web page from Zoo Atlanta where he lived. It includes a timeline of events in his life: Click here.

Here are three stories about Ivan. They update you on the life of the real Ivan at Zoo Atlanta and include a lot of historic information.   Story #1   : :   Story #2   : :   Story #3

After viewing the video and reading the information on the links, please take a few minutes and write a response to the book, to the news stories, Ivan's life, or anything else about Ivan that comes to mind. Please leave your paragraphs where you would normally turn in your journals. Please write on a separate sheet of paper or type and print it out.

Fifth Grade:

First, check out the information page for chapter 10. There's stuff about outhouses, the Sears catalog, Buster Brown, and Interstate 75 through the Appalachian Mountains in Tennessee. Click here for the link.

When the read aloud is done, you may silently read or finish your journal entries (as needed) for the week. And now, chapter 10 of The Watsons Go to Birmingham - 1963 . . .
