Number the Stars Quiz 1 over Chapters 1-4 - Wednesday, April 26th

I have divided the 17 chapters of the novel into four sections, and we will have a quiz over each section. Our first quiz is this Wednesday and future quiz dates will be on a weekly basis and recorded in your child's agenda. Quizzes will be based on assigned reading, class discussion, and classwork/homework (comprehension questions, character charts, and vocabulary charts) for each chapter. Each student has a blue folder specifically designated for the novel that contains these items. Students are encouraged to use their books on the quizzes.
