Greetings! Here’s our usual reflection on last week’s material and our look ahead to new things we will discuss and learn. I am definitely looking forward to the coming week, even though I can already feel myself falling behind!

Last week

This past week we finished up The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum. Additionally, we looked at a poem about storms, and discussed some new books that I got my hands on during my trip Up North. Lastly, we discussed folklore in the form of the Dogman of Michigan.

As always, I did not get to everything I wanted this week, but such is life when you are a teacher, musician, and blogger!

This week

For the upcoming week:

  • Monday: I have been mulling this over, and I think I am going to begin summarizing and analyzing Alice in Wonderland. Mostly, I believe those particular posts give me a chance to read a new book I have been meaning to get to, and I really enjoyed breaking down The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.
  • Tuesday: We are going to summarize and analyze a poem about beginning new adventures.
  • Wednesday: We are going to look at syntactical considerations.
  • Thursday: We are going to read and take apart a short story.
  • Friday: We are going discuss a fantastical film that is based on a book.
  • Saturday: If we have time, we are going to take a look at a writing prompt and try some new engagement strategies.
  • Sunday: Weekly wrap-up and a look ahead.

It’s going to be a busy week on the blog, so I do hope you stop by for a visit!
