Yesterday our journal question before reading more of Ch. 3 in Percy Jackson was something that got everyone excited. Specifically the question asked, "Think of a place that puts you most at ease." In other words where are you most comfortable and able to relax. Percy Jackson's favorite spot was Montauk, NY. He and his mother have history there and were able to "get away from it all". We did not get to hear everyone's answers so I promised sixth grade I would make a blog posting about this very topic! Most of our students had more than one place that they wanted to discuss. So have at it sixth graders! Where are your "comfort zones"? Why do you enjoy it so much there?
This page is dedicated to the work and research my students do each day.
