Let the Literacy Adventure Begin!

Mrs. Colleen Kish, Gr. 5 & 6 Language Arts Teacher

Literacy is alive and well in the fifth grade!

Literacy is alive and well in the fifth grade! We recently finished reading the historical fiction novel The Breadwinner by Deborah Ellis and were able to make connections to real-world situations happening in Afghanistan today. We concluded the unit by watching the film adaptation of the book and identifying similarities and differences between the two. We have just begun our next book Dominic by William Steig. We will be following our generous and courageous protagonist as he sets forth to see the world. Let the adventure begin!
