Learning Targets: I can comprehend details about Esperanza Rising.
I can identify challenging moments that characters face in chapter four of Esperanza Rising.
Today, students in block one were able to meet three police officers from our neighborhood. Paige invited them in as a part of her service learning project, and they were wonderful guests in our classroom! Students were extremely observant of various parts about their uniform, and about their career choice. The officers were more than willing to tell stories about what they do for a living, and also told us about some moments that might not always make the news. Thank you, Paige, for inviting the officers in to visit our class today!
Both blocks took a quiz on chapter four today. Students in block two reviewed chapter four and using sticky notes, listened specifically for challenges that Esperanza, Mama, Miguel, and Abuelita faced in the chapter. Students will be continuing this study in class tomorrow.
There is no homework for block one or block two tonight!
