Shiloh's Shack - Class Novel Study

Welcome to Shiloh's Shack! For the past three weeks, Ms. Pascucci's class has been hard at work in our novel study on the story Shiloh by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor. For the study, each student received their own copy of Shiloh and their very own Shiloh folders where they could keep all of their resources throughout the unit. During our novel study, we learned about identifying themes in a text, different points of view, and even about idioms! We enjoyed working with our teams to practice summarizing by creating narrative arcs that detail the major events of Shiloh. We also created a class sequence that breaks down the major events of each chapter and displayed it on the bulletin board outside of our room. This way all of the students at Hollywood could see what we were reading about in Shiloh- check it out! 

We had a great time reading about Shiloh, and some of us can't wait to read the next books in the Shiloh trilogy. Check back in with us to hear what happens Shiloh next!
