Magic Tree House Adventures, Part 2
Teacher: Julia Davis
Students will continue on their adventures with Jack and Anne as they read The Magic Tree House books together as a class. Class will start with book 13, Vacation Under the Volcano, and will continue with the following 3 books. Students will practice reading comprehension skills such as making predictions, retelling events, character descriptions, and basic literary elements. They will do addition activities relating to the topics in the books such as ancient Rome, ancient China, the Vikings and the Greeks.
Students do not need to be able to read the books on their own, as the instructor will read the books out loud in class. There may be additional reading assigned as homework and parents are encouraged to read with their child. Kids should be able to pay attention for up to 15 minutes and have some basic literary skills. Actual reading and writing not required, but an interest in stories and adventure a must!
Students need to bring their own copy of Vacation Under the Volcano, The Day of the Dragon King, Viking Ships at Sunrise, and Hour of the Olympics to class. Fairfax Public Library has many copies that can be checked out for quite a few weeks at a time.
