Welcome back Pegasus students! I look forward to a fun and exciting year in reading class. We will start the year reading A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park. This novel tells the alternating stories of two characters, Salva and Nya, who live in Sudan but at different time periods. Using various informational texts and resources, we will explore more about the region, the struggles the characters faced and the history of the "Lost Boys" of Sudan. We will also continue our vocabulary study of Greek and Latin stems.
As a reminder, students will need a 3 ring binder (1") for class this year. A separate notebook or folder is not needed for reading class. I look forward to a wonderful year together!
