Hello 7th Grade Families,
 
Today, we started class by reviewing the first 5 vocabulary words of Unit 1 and figuring out ways to remember their definitions. Next, I read Last Stop of Market Street by Matt De La Pena. We used this book to help us understand character development and how the Franciscan Values are modeled. I asked the question: What tools does the author use to develop Nana's character and illustrate what kind of person she is. As a class, we discussed that the author used the plot of the story to show that Nana was caring, selfless, optimistic, and giving. 

Best,
Mrs. Baier
