Miss Turner’s Distance Learning Assignments May 18-22


Hi.  We are reading Rikki-tikki-tavi this week.  It is a story written by the same author that wrote the Jungle Book that Disney made into a famous animated and live action film.  As you read the story located in the Streaming Section of your Literature Google Classroom, you will need to take notes and make a prediction list at all the blue squares A-R to answer #4.  Looking at all the red circles C-S in the story to locate foreshadowing (hints the author gives to warn you what is about to happen) will help you answer #5.  Zoom Meetings will be held at their normally scheduled times of 1:00, 1:30 and 2:00.  The meeting information is:
