Week of March 23-27, 2020

Hi 7th Graders!
How are you?! I have thought of you and prayed for you and your family each and every day! Hopefully you have been able to enjoy your spring break and have some fun with your families.
This week we will conclude our study of oral traditions and folktales, at least for the time being, with a commonlit.org story "The Four Dragons."
Once you sign in, if you haven't before, you can read the story, jot down notes and review the vocabulary. It is a unique Chinese folk tale and offers some very unique characteristics. I think it will be fun to compare it to "Demeter and Persephone."
After you have read the story twice, you will have three small assignments to help you draw comparisons. While they are all posted, please do one at a time, one a day or whenever you feel prepared to answer. The due date posted is simply a goal or reminder to complete the assignment--there is no penalty if you do not complete it by March 30th. Do it as best as you can and post your responses when completed.
Re-read the story two or three times before you do the online quiz with commonlit.org. If you have younger siblings or a story/drama night at home with your family, practice your pvlegs and share the story with your family. This class is filled with great readers and presenters! I am certain that they will love to hear your reading of "Four Dragons." Each dragon could have a different voice. What fun!
On Friday, if all goes well, I hope that we will be able to convene as a class and discuss the story, as well as prepare for our Author in April novel TERROR AT BOTTLE CREEK. It will be a great read! I miss our movie and book talks, so hopefully we can share our ideas about what you've been reading and watching! You are such an interesting and delightful class, I can't wait to meet with you.
Do the best you can and contact me if you have any questions. Contact me through Google or kober.teresa@holyfam.org.
Keeping you and your family close in my thoughts and prayers!
God bless you, love, Mrs. Kober
