Freak the Almighty!

August 26, 2015

The Stars have arrived and are ready to dive head on into our first unit of the year in Language Arts. We are beginning this year with the Novel unit by reading Freak the Mighty. The students will learn about friendship, accepting those who are different, and how bullying can affect individuals. When we are finished with the book, the students will complete a brochure using all of their new knowledge on the plot diagram and figurative language to promote and try to sell the book. We will end the unit by watching the movie and comparing/contrasting the book to the movie. I can’t think of a better way to start the year than by reading a book that will help promote friendship and accepting others.
