Welcome to Thursday
Today is a minimum day. We’re gonna take some time today to slow down, get caught up, and get ready for our novel. Below I’ve put links to tests that you may be missing. If you’re missing one of these tests, take it as soon as we’re done with our 5 day grammar. Period 4, we forgot the 5 day grammar yesterday, so we’ll do that one too. Period 5, we still need to get caught up on our notes.
I’ve got many of your Snow paragraphs. Today would be a good time to complete those if you haven’t turned them in. Also, reading logs are due tomorrow. If you’ve not started those, grab a reading log now and start doing that work.
The classroom environment should be quiet and busy. You should not be disturbing anyone who is trying to finish work.
Pd 1 – Writing Prompt – No writing today
Here is what we will be doing in order:
- 5 Day Grammar
- (If you are done with everything else) In Classroom, start working on our Book Journals.
- If you need to make up tests, here are the ones that we have online:
5 Day Grammar (find yours in Google Classroom)
Week 6 Grammar Test
Week 5 Grammar Test
Week 3 Grammar Test
Elements of Story Part II
Elements of Story Part I
If you need to finish the Merlin story, textbooks are also available. You should answer questions 1-10 at the end of the story.
4. Reading Logs / AR Tests
As long as all the work from the past 3 days is done, we will now begin reading our books. Periods 1, 4, and 5 will read The Giver. Period 3 will read Inherit the Wind.
Due: Cornell Notes, 5 Day Grammar for Monday and Tuesday. You will receive credit / no credit for these assignments. If you were working the entire time, your work should now be complete. If you were not, then your work is likely incomplete.
The detentions will vary in length. Those who had their names written down one day will serve one-half hour. Those who have their names written down twice will serve a full hour. Each student who will serve detention will be getting notices telling their parents when, where, and why the detention is to be served. Anyone on the detention list is not eligible for the ukulele drawing. I have to be fair to those students who are doing the right thing.
What should be done:
Today, Period 1 will write for the 1st ten minutes of class. I’ve provided a timer on your slideshow to help you.
Each class will complete today’s 5 day grammar. Our TAs will collect this and grade them. A grading sheet will be at the back of the room.
Periods 1, 4, and 5 will take notes on The Giver. As you take your notes, you will also have to answer questions that are embedded in the notes. You will turn these notes in tomorrow for credit. You will receive them back on Wednesday.
Period 1, 4, and 5 Presentation
Period 3 will take notes on Inherit the Wind. You will also watch a video that goes along with your notes. You will be required to use this video to define a series of vocabulary words. You will also watch the video carefully so that you can answer 3 questions about the video. You will turn these notes in tomorrow for credit. You will receive them back on Wednesday.
Period 3 Presentation
We need the morning announcement video completed and shared.
Yearbook needs to be worked on.
PAWS videos need to be completed and shared.
