READING: Molly's Pilgrim

READING

January 8-12, 2018

 

  This week students will learn about immigration and the history of Ellis Island. We will be continuing to read the novel, "Molly's Pilgrim", a fictional story about a modern day pilgrim that came to America in search of religious freedom.  To honor those who came before us, we will create clothespin dolls that represent the immigrants that made the difficult journey to America.  We will conclude our unit by writing a narrative about the journey and arrival of a fictional passenger.



Our goals in reading this week will include: answering text dependent questions, and describing  characters in a story (e.g., their traitsmotivations, or feelings) and explaining how their actions contribute to the sequence of events.
