  • Gulliver's Travels, Part 1, Chapters 1-5

    Posted by Maria Navas on 5/29/2020

    Well that concludes Part I, A Voyage to Lilliput, Chapters 1-5. I invite you to let me know what you think of Gulliver's first travel adventure. You can do this by email: mnavas@emsd63.org

    Let's chat. Tell me what you think about the people, places, or events.

    To help get you started...

    ...think about how you would feel if you woke up tied to the ground, unable to move as Gulliver did when he awakes in Lilliput

    ...think about the people Gulliver meets. Some are friendly, some are not. Why do you think that is?

    Thanks for listening and I will chat with you soon.

    Until then, Stay Safe & Happy Reading.

  • Reading the Classics

    Posted by Ms. Navas on 5/27/2020

    Long before books, radios, TVs, or the internet stories were told in the oral tradition by storytellers. Some stories have been retold for over 100 years, like our first reading, Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift, published in the early 1700s.

    I will be reading a chapter each day. So sit back and enjoy this old classic.
