Gosh, the students can hardly contain themselves about reading the next chapters in Stone Fox. The day before the race, Stone Fox arrived; Little Willy tried to pet Stone Fox's dog and Stone Fox punched him in the eye, and Little Willy apologized to him because he told Stone Fox that he was going to win and not him.
During the last couple of chapters of Stone Fox and The Meeting, we have talked about the protagonist and antagonist and the literary device of foreshadowing. The students are writing each day and are using their book to cite evidence and helping with spelling.
Next Tuesday, we finish the book.......gulp, as it is not a happy ending!
