Why Lesson Planet?
Kids love working with their peers. Get your class into small literature circles and have them complete weekly assignments. Before beginning this week's activity, have each learner write a letter from Esperanza in California to Abuelita (who is still in Mexico at this point). Then, in literature circles, the kids will answer a series of thoughtful questions (provided) and discuss their recent reading. Sample answers and a test preparation document are also included here. A great resource!
