Lesson/Week 8

We are all anxiously awaiting the end of  39 Clues: The Maze of Bones!  We had a great class discussion today recapping what we read this past week and now we are finishing the book!   Yes, please finish reading the book this week and complete the worksheets in your blue folder!  

We also confirmed that all 39 clues are not revealed in this first book!  As a group, we will decide if we want to continue reading the series after we have finished this first book.  I don't know about you, but I am hooked!

 

We ended class celebrating Titus' birthday (thanks to his family for treating us to cupcakes!) and doing a memory game.  Detectives need to remember details!  Students looked at a picture on the tv that contained 20 objects and then were asked to open an envelope that contained 35 individual pictures of objects; some were identical to those viewed on the tv and others were decoys!  Students had to sort the individual pictures into two piles: 'yes this was in the tv picture' or 'no, this is a decoy'.  Several groups successfully chose 14, 16 or 18 correct photos; Lillian and Carlie chose all 20 correct photos!  Way to go!

Homework: 

As noted above, please finish reading 39 Clues: The Maze of Bones and answer all the questions on the worksheets.
