As we spoke about before vacation, I have programmed a class (Maria's Class) on Newsela.com.
If you have not logged into Newsela yet, please do so using the class code V45N7Y to join. There are two assignments that are already listed for you on the same subject (the spy balloon) at different levels. Click the Assignments tab to reach these articles.
Look at each article carefully, and decide which one you would like to try. There are some directions I have posted to explain the differences between the two. Challenge yourself! After reading the article carefully, please take the quiz that Newsela already has programmed for you. Write your answers in your notebook and keep track of your score. In addition, there is a writing prompt listed, as well. If there is time, please try this assignment in your notebooks.
If you finish early, browse through Newsela and find a second interesting article to read. Take the quiz after reading, and again, keep track of how well you do. Good luck!
