Prezados alunos,
Neste segundo momento, realizaremos uma revisão das unidades 4, 5 e 6 do livro didático Power English 4 que é
utilizado em sala de aula. Isso significa que essas unidades podem ser usadas como referências na ocorrência de
dúvidas. Além do livro, o caderno também poderá ser consultado, bem como o dicionário para a interpretação dos
enunciados, conforme informado anteriormente.
No entanto, essas atividades podem ser impressas e resolvidas na própria folha para entrega em sala de aula na
próxima semana de retorno normal às aulas. Não será necessário copiá-las. As datas de entrega serão combinadas,
bem como os critérios de avaliação.
Ressaltamos que estamos à disposição para esclarecimentos de dúvidas e explicações necessárias.
Um grande abraço, bom estudo e até a próxima semana.
