READING UPDATE

with Mrs. Gaddy

We are reading a Hindu Myth called “Ramayana: Divine Loophole”. This is an interesting myth from Ancient India that the students will use to help them develop their own story for our 2nd Writing Benchmark.  This story also ties in with our Social Studies unit on Ancient India.
