Wish list for classroom
Welcome back Panthers!
This week we are still focusing on narrative techniques. We are still working on the diary entries. Remember we are on an island and we are writing about our experiences on the island. For each diary entry you need these five items:
1)Use 2-3 types of figurative language in each diary entry
2.)Use imagery to “show” and not just “tell” what’s going on
(consider sight, sound, taste, touch, and smell at all times)
3) Use paragraphs to keep things organized.
4) Use all kinds of sentences (short and long— don’t keep it all the same!)
5) Your image must be directly related to the most important part of each diary entry
(write a caption for each image that comes right from your diary entry).
I graded your first two entries before the break. If you received a low grade, make sure to re-do the work if you want a better grade.
This week, we will focus on conflict and dialogue. You will have two more diary entries due this week.
Today we took the Four Types of Sentence test in Google Classroom. You should receive an email at the end of the day with your grade. Also, your narrative with dialogue is also due today. You will have class time to work on it, but I will grade it when you leave class. Please check Infinite Campus
Remember, you can improve some of your assignments. If you dislike your grade, you may retake or redo some assignments. You must schedule a day to come see me in the mornings, or on some Fridays, you may retake the test. IF you are redoing an assignment, you need to do the assignment, then you must email me at [email protected], and write what assignment it is, and I will be happy to regrade your work.
October 28-November 1
This week, we will focus on descriptive details. We will add more details to your narrative.
We made it through the first week of school! The first assignment to be graded is the Course Expectations sheet. Please have your parents sign the Course Expectations sheet. It is a grade. If you received a zero for not turning it in, or you forgot to put your name on your paper, please grab another sheet and turn it in to receive a grade.
This week students will understand, practice, and reflect what it means to have P.R.I.D.E.
Students will also understand the classroom rules and procedures.
I will assign students a Chromebook and sign in to Google Classroom.
Students will take a MAPs pretest.
Test on P.R.I.D.E. vocabulary and classroom procedures.
