Events this week-
The third Progress report will be given on Tuesday
or Wednesday of this week
Note: Due to district
writing assessment and the semester tests in reading and math for the
district, I have extended the due date for the book report in poetry form.
Instead of it being due December 13th, it is due December 17th when your
son/daughter is in my class. I won't take the reports late.
GRADES HAVE BEEN POSTED. IF YOUR
SON/DAUGHTER HASN'T DONE THE WORK ..or hasn't turned in their score - IT IS A BLANK SPACE. Students
were instructed to come in, during lunchtime, and make up the work. I
have a special pass for them to use to spend lunch study time with me!
REMEMBER: Students are working on their book report
as homework. They have had seven (7) weeks to work on this creative
approach. They are creating a book report that is made up entirely of
poems. Students were given poetry directions in class and then they
had to write the poetry form as homework. Now we are at the collecting
them all together part of the project. I continue to have a copy of
all of of the forms, with examples, in my room.
If you want to look up these types on the internet,
here are their names:
Acrostic Haiku Waka
Tanka Free Verse
Pantoum Five Senses
Cinquain Bio Poem
Remember: They are writing poetry about their book.
Please look at the due date handout that tells you what literary portion
their poem must address: Title, Author's Name, Plot, Conflict, major
and minor characters, Setting, Resolution, etc.
expect all of my students to have a spiral notebook they use in this class.
Every student was given one on the 2nd of August. This notebook
must be with them every day. It will become their study guide for
Period 1= red Period 2= yellow
Period 4 = green Period 5= black Period 6 = blue
Please read the
information ( in green) on my homepage regarding make-up tests.
Any student who fails a test, or does not
do well on a homework assignment, should come in for extra help during
lunchtime. I re-teach the concepts in a different way...hopefully the student will
comprehend the Performance objective and raise his/he score.
Students must come in and take notes on short videos if they are absent on
that day. *
Let me tell you all
what a thrill it is to be your son's/daughter's Language Arts teacher this year.
My planning period is Period
