This week we will continue reading the novel Touching Spirit Bear, by Ben Mikaelsen, where we will use the elements of fiction to determine how the author develops the theme and advances the plot forward.
Remember to read! If you reach 100% of your AR goal by February 3rd, the 50% date, you will earn 10 extra credit points! Also, remember, every third week you can earn up to 10 extra credit points by doing the USA Test Prep quiz that pops up. I am looking forward to an excellent start of the year 2017!!!
