I've also been writing Literature Units. I decided that the kids need to have a little more done with their reading. They read a LOT, but I'm not always involved in it. So, Josh and I are going to read The Hobbit together. Claire requested Alice in Wonderland. I've spent the past few days organizing materials to make them some pretty fantastic lit units. Each chapter will have vocabulary, comprehension questions, essay questions, quotations, extension activities, and other little things. Plus, they'll do a big final project at the end. THEN, after we've read it, we'll get to watch the movie(s) and write a paper comparing and contrasting the book vs the film. I'm pretty excited! One of Josh's friends is going to join Josh in his lit unit, so Josh will be having a class with a friend! I think it will be pretty neat!
I must say, I'm sort of tired of sitting in front of the computer. Luckily, the midterm test will be this Thursday (yes, my kids are taking a big test on Thanksgiving morning...but that way Devin will be here to help me out, since this is going to be a little intense and Peter won't have anything to do), which will lift a bit of stress off my shoulders. Maybe I should post my cute little test on here and you can see how you'd do! Ha! Are you smarter than a 5th grader? That was a good show. Maybe I should watch it. It could give me some good ideas.
