I will be sending home permission slips on Tuesday in Language Arts/Literature because we will be viewing The Pearl in class on 2/27 and 2/28. The students insisted they didn’t need permission slips, but I let them know PG stood for parental guidance. I also let them know that it’s a good thing to let parents know what their kids are viewing in class. The students have enjoyed this book thus far, and I can’t wait to show them the movie. I’m sure we will have our hands full with noting all the differences from the book and this adaptation…

We have complete the reading of John Steinbeck’s classic tale The Pearl. I would like to show the 2001 adaptation of the movie directed by Richard Harris and starring Lukas Haas. The rating for this movie is PG-13. Please fill out the form and check the appropriate box indicating whether or not your child has permission to view the movie. If you do not wish for your child to watch this movie, I will provide an alternative activity for them. Thank you for your time and consideration.” You can view the word document [here].
