052317 –Tuesday – Day 176

Important Announcements: Make sure you bring your textbooks back this week. You also need to turn in your reading books.

We have now gone over everything we need to know in order to write sonnets.  We learned the rhyme scheme (ABABCDCDEFEFGG), the meter (Iambic Pentameter), the themes that you should write about, the number of lines, the number of syllables, quatrains, couplets, and the turn.  You saw several examples, of sonnets.

Today, you will continue working on your own sonnet.  Don’t forget to do some brainstorming before you actually begin the writing process.  You should map out what each quatrain and your couplet will say.

Today we will have a vocabulary test.  Hopefully, you studied for it.

Link 1 (7:10) Content / Structure

Link 2 (2:30) Quatrains / couplets

As we write our poems, you will work quietly and by yourself.  We must be in that deep-thinking musing mode, which requires that we not disturb others.  You don’t need to share with anyone, you don’t need to ask questions, you just need to think, plan, and write.  When you’ve got your first draft written, then you will work with a partner to refine your work.

  1. Complete our daily starters in Google Classroom
  2. Week 36 Vocabulary Test
  3. Complete Week 37 Vocabulary and Frayer Models.  We will copy down vocabulary, the complete Frayer models.  When we are done, we will complete a vocabulary assignment.
  4. We will begin looking at Sonnets this week.  You may need to use the Sonnet form to complete your first one.  I will provide links to videos that explain sonnets.  (Sonnets 6:09 – Iambic).  Once you have your sonnet finished, it should go into your poetry book in Google Classroom (or the book you are creating by hand).
  5. Two weeks ago, we looked at Haiku.  Today, we can continue with that if you are not complete.  You will complete the assignment from yesterday, then you will move on to your Haiku practice assignment.   If you understand syllables now, these should be super easy for you.
  6. Finish your Limerick Poetry — Limericks.  I’ve been super impressed with the poems I’ve seen so far, but some of your still haven’t done your limericks.  This is going to be make-or-break for this year.  If you finish your Haiku, make sure you get back to these and get them done.
  7. We will begin creating our poetry books.  There is a guide for you in Google Classroom.
  8. Complete missing work.
  9. We might even get to the Sonnet.

What our poetry unit will require of us:

We will learn the vocabulary necessary to write and analyze poetry.

We will learn several poetic forms.

We will learn poetic meter

We will learn rhyme scheme

We will learn how to write our own poems

We will learn the literary devices commonly used in writing poems.

We will then learn how to discuss poetry in an essay.  This will require that we analyze poetry in terms of theme.  We will also have to explain how literary devices are used to reinforce those themes.

Our last task will be a poetry book where you will place your own best poems.  This project should be beautiful.  It is your opportunity to show off.

051217 – Friday – Day 169

It’s Friday!  Today I will be at Knotts, so I need each of you to be on your best behavior.

Period 1, 2, 4, and 5:

You will need at least 2 sheets of paper today.  Make sure everything is done and turned in.  You will need to complete:

  1. Daily Starters (all periods will do this).  This should take about 5 minutes.  Make sure you turn it in.
  2. You will read The Old Man at the Bridge.  When you are done, you will complete the assignment that goes with it.  This assignment will give you another chance to make up some missing assignments.   But that means you have to complete everything on today’s agenda.  If you do so, I will count today’s work as either 3 reading logs or 3 reading logs (or a combination).    But, that means you must complete the work, and your entire class must get a good report.  This is a great opportunity to get caught up.  Take advantage!  I’m hoping some of you will be a Sub-Superstar.  Remember, the classes that get good reviews will have an easy day on Friday.  You have to earn it, though.
  3. If you finish the work above, you still need to complete your Frayer Models.  These are due Monday.

Make sure your name / Period / Row is on your paper so that you get credit!

If

Period 3

Today you will:

  1. Complete and turn in Daily Starters:
  2. You will watch an episode of The Twilight Zone.  This should already be ready for you on a tab on our computer.   Please help the teacher to navigate the computer.
  3. Make sure you pay attention because I want you to complete a plot chart when you are done.  I will need to know all the elements of the plot map: exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, resolution, theme, protagonist versus antagonist, and the central conflict.

Sit in your assigned seats according to this seating chart so that you don’t have any issues with our guest teacher:  Seating Charts

Morning Announcements

Remember, you should stay in your seats the entire period.

Also, if you need to go to the bathroom, you know that you need to present a bathroom pass.

Bathroom Pass

Only one student should be allowed to leave the class at a time. \

Be polite, and respectful.

Thanks!

051117 – Thursday – Day 168

Period 3 is the only class that will get to chill on Friday.  Overall, I’m really sad about the sub’s report.  There will definitely be detentions and calls home.  If you get a detention, please don’t create drama.  You know the rules.  If you get named, then you get detention.  When there’s a sub, lay low, and don’t stick out because you want to show off in front of the class.   Today, there will also be seating changes.  These will be your permanent seats until further notice.

I am hoping my report for Friday will be better.

Period 3 will continue working on our Haiku today.  You’ve also earned a privelege for Friday.

Periods 1, 2, 4, and 5:

Yesterday I gave each class the chance to make up some points on missing assignments.  We’re going to do a repeat, and you will do much better today.

Our do-over: A lot of you are missing assignments.  Today, you will get the chance to make some of them up.  But that means you have to complete everything on today’s agenda.  If you do so, I will count today’s work as either 3 reading logs or 3 Frayer models (or a combination of those.  But, that means you must complete the work, and your entire class must get a good report.  This is a great opportunity to get caught up.  Take advantage!  I’m hoping some of you will be a Sub-Superstar.  Remember, the classes that get good reviews will have an easy day on Friday.  You have to earn it, though.

Make sure your name / Period / Row is on your paper so that you get credit!

Sit in your assigned seats according to this seating chart so that you don’t have any issues with our guest teacher.

Today we will

  1. Complete daily starters
  2. Copy down our 10 vocabulary words and their definitions.   When you are done, you will use the words to complete the following assignment.  You may want to ask our guest teacher for a few minutes to study, as you may need that time for the next assignment.  You will need paper and a writing instrument.
  3. Use this week’s words to complete the following assignment: Vocabulary Story.  This assignment is where you can earn up to 3 reading logs or 3 Frayer Models (or a mix of both).  So, you have to do well on this.  If you finish this before the bell rings, go to #4.
  4. Use the vocabulary words to complete Frayer Models.
