First, we will start with a vocabulary activity. This is thinking way out of the box, but just go with it. For each picture, tell how it is like one of the vocab words. Match up all five pictures with vocab words. Then share with other tables. Your brain is forced to work in a slightly different way and that helps you remember.
Next, we will read “The Haunted Chess Set” on page 173 in the blue book. Our focus is still on character and conflict. After we finish the story, we will practice the assessment questions and see if we are ready for a big grade on these two topics.
