011818 – Thursday – Day 97

Last week we did not have a vocabulary test.  This week we will.  Make sure you study your vocabulary words from last week.  I need your Frayer Models for those words ASAP.  We will be making phone calls home this week for missing work.

We still have students taking MAPS tests.  Because of this, we will still be in testing mode until most of those students are done.  Make sure you are respectful and busy.  If you’ve finished the MAPS test, you may go into classroom and continue to work on the Marking Up the Text Assignment for The Lottery.

We should be moving on to the Lottery Project by tomorrow.

Also in classroom is our project for The Lottery.  You may also work quietly on that.  Look at my example if you are not clear what you should be doing.

011218 – Friday – Day 94

 

Today, period 1 will have a sub.  We talked about this yesterday, so you should be ready.  Remember the expectations for when there is a guest teacher.  You should be helpful, kind, and polite.  If you plan on watching Harry Potter with me after school, make sure she gets your permission slip.  

Advisory will watch the morning announcements.  When that is done, students may watch channel 1 news.

 

 

 

 

 

Today, period 1 will:

  1. Begin with 10 minutes of silent reading.  You may work on reading logs (they are due today, make sure you turn them in to Sergio or the Sub), AR tests, or you may work on your Frayer Models, because they are also due (turn them in to Sergio or the Sub).
  2. Complete Monday’s Five Day Grammar (we didn’t get it done on Monday, so we agreed yesterday that we would complete it today instead of taking a grammar test).  The Five Day grammar can be found on the handout that the sub has passed out to you.  Complete it on that handout.  The sub will go over the answers with you when you are done.  This should take a total of 10 minutes.
  3. You will read a poem as a class.  The poem is “The Highwayman,” and it can be found on page 160 of our textbook.  The sub should stop the class frequently in order to help you understand the poem.  The textbooks are on the bookshelf behind the video screen.  Please pass the textbooks to the front of the class before you leave.  Do not leave them on the floor or under your desk.
  4. If there is time, you will watch this video of the poem.  This video follows the events of the poem very closely.
  5. Complete the questions provided on the handout.  Use IQIA – Include question in your answer.

The sub will let me know how you did.  I am hoping that I will be able to reward the class on Tuesday.

Periods 3, 4, and 5:

We will begin today, as we do everyday, with Five Day Grammar.  As soon as you are done with that, you should get started on your MAPS test.

Last week we did not go over our new vocabulary.  This week, however, we will.  You should look at the list of words below and select 10 that you do not know.  Create a Frayer Model for those 10 words and turn them in by Friday.  You may work on these quietly in class when you’ve finished your MAPS test.

011118 – Thursday – Day 93

We will begin today, as we do everyday, with Five Day Grammar.  As soon as you are done with that, you should get started on your MAPS test.

MAPs testing:  We’ve been doing a great job.  Most of you are right on target.  Tomorrow is our last scheduled day for testing.  But, if you finish early, remember to get into Classroom and work on our Marking up the Text assignment.  You also need to finish the Frayer models for tomorrow.  Finally, reading logs are also due.  So, if you do finish early, there are plenty of things to keep you busy so that your classmates can finish their tests. 

Last week we did not go over our new vocabulary.  This week, however, we will.  You should look at the list of words below and select 10 that you do not know.  Create a Frayer Model for those 10 words and turn them in by Friday.  You may work on these quietly in class when you’ve finished your MAPS test.

010518 – Friday – Day 89

Happy Friday!

Today, some of you will still need to re-enroll in Classroom.  I’ve archived the old work, so none of it should be accessible any longer.  As of Tuesday, we’ve started from scratch.

If you haven’t taken the behavior quiz, do so.  I will delete it today, and it will no longer be accessible.  Understanding our classroom behavior expectations will make sure that we are all on the same page before we go forward.  You can access the behavior quiz in Classroom.  A single student who doesn’t follow the rules slows the entire class down, and prevents us all from achieving our goals.

Also in Classroom is this week’s Grammar Test.  Make sure you take that.  You may use any resources you have available, but you will only get one chance to take this test.  Take it seriously, and do your best.

We have created new flash cards.  You should have written your  MAPS and lexile scores on those cards.  Next week we move into MAPS testing.  It’s time now to start getting psyched up for that.

I need your flashcards back.  If you still have yours, complete it and get it to me.

Yesterday, we completed our first reading of The Lottery.  Today we will move forward with marking up the textWhen you open up our working document, you will see that I’ve done the 1st two paragraphs for you.  You should follow my example as you mark up your own text.  As you mark up the text, look for words, phrases, or sentences that appear to have multiple meanings now that we know how the story ends.

  • Period 1 will no longer be doing Object Writing.  Instead, we will bring books and get our reading in for the week.  Make sure you bring a book to class each day.  All classes will start practicing writing on Fridays.  This is also a good time to complete your reading logs and get AR tests done.

 

 

Today, we will finish our Five Day Grammar with something new (at least for everyone except for period 1).  We will do some writing.  I will show you how this writing should be completed.

You will also have a test on this week’s Five Day Grammar.  You can only take this test one time, so make sure you do your best.  The score you get will be your final score. You are allowed to use any resources that you may have.

 

 

We will use the short story The Lottery in order to develop our focus area skills.  We will read the story one time as a whole class.  You will then spend a class period marking up the text.  Once we are done with this, you will work through a project assignment that can be found in Google Classroom.

Make sure you turn in your Five Day Grammar today!

Also turn in your grammar tests

010418 – Thursday – Day 88

Today, some of you will still need to re-enroll in Classroom.  I’ve archived the old work, so none of it should be accessible any longer.  As of Tuesday, we’ve started from scratch.

If you haven’t taken the behavior quiz, do so.  I will delete it on Friday, and it will no longer be accessible.  Understanding our classroom behavior expectations will make sure that we are all on the same page before we go forward.  You can access the behavior quiz in Classroom.  A single student who doesn’t follow the rules slows the entire class down, and prevents us all from achieving our goals.

We have created new flash cards.  You should have written your  MAPS and lexile scores on those cards.  Next week we move into MAPS testing.  It’s time now to start getting psyched up for that.

I need your flashcards back.  If you still have yours, complete it and get it to me.

Yesterday, we began our first reading of The Lottery.  Today we will complete that, and each of you will begin marking up the text.

  • Period 1 will no longer be doing Object Writing.  Instead, we will bring books and get our reading in for the week.  Make sure you bring a book to class each day.  All classes will start practicing writing on Fridays.  This is also a good time to complete your reading logs and get AR tests done.

 

 

You will find your assignment in Google Classroom.  You will also be able to access the file necessary by clicking on the red label above.

 

 

We will use the short story The Lottery in order to develop our focus area skills.  We will read the story one time as a whole class.  You will then spend a class period marking up the text.  Once we are done with this, you will work through a project assignment that can be found in Google Classroom.

 

 

We will continue practicing using quotations to support our ideas.  The quotes must be cited correctly using MLA formatting.  This week, we will do this while taking Cornell Notes.

Conflict Project

This assignment was completed prior to leaving, but with one small problem.  Many of you forgot to put your names on our flashcard assignments, and I could, therefore, not issue you a grade.  We will distribute the flashcards, you will put your name on your work, you will organize your work by your selected group, and you will then turn in the projects for a grade.

Rules for Presentation

 

 

This week’s vocabulary words can be found in the short story, The Lottery.  You will choose 10 words from that list that you feel you need to learn.  You will create Frayer Models for each of those words.
