Unit: Realistic Fiction
Quote accurately from a text when explaining what the text says explicitly and when drawing inferences from the text.
Compare and contrast two or more characters, settings, or events in a story or drama, drawing on specific details in the text (e.g., how characters interact).
- Continue characterization & character traits
- Using textual evidence to infer how a character changes throughout the story
- Using text evidence to support our claims
This week we will continue inferring character traits of characters using their actions, thoughts, and what they say. We will discuss how characters can be complex and have many traits, some even conflicting. Characters are just as complex as humans. This week we will take this skill a step further and discuss how characters can change throughout a story. For example, in the beginning of the story we may infer a character is lazy or unmotivated because they don’t do work around the house. However, by the end of the story the character changes, and we need to revisit the traits we associated with that character. Just as humans can improve and change, so can story characters.
Unit: Personal Narratives
Use concrete words and phrases and sensory details to convey experiences and events precisely.
- Show Not Tell
This week we will continue adding more descriptive language to our writing. We will practice writing showing sentences using what we have learned from sensory details.
