7th Grade:

The race to finish the book has begun! I think it can be assumed that we are reading The Outsiders every day in class until otherwise mentioned. In addition to reading, we spent some time today working on literature circle worksheets that will inform our meetings tomorrow (Thursday), and Poetry Projects were returned. I was SO impressed by the final projects I saw. I encouraged everyone to put their work into their portfolios so we could examine it as proof of tremendous growth over the course of the year.

No homework was assigned.

7th Grade:

We continued reading today, and finished (or nearly finished) Chapter 3 of The Outsiders. We began working on worksheets that will enable us to have thoughtful discussions about the book in our Literature Circles this Thursday, May 31st. We will continue working on these worksheets in class tomorrow, and if completed, will continue with our Character Analysis worksheets. No homework was assigned.

 

8th Grade:

The opening activity today was a vocabulary practice worksheet that had all the words’ sentences (vocab words were omitted) from the novel Whirligig. Next, students read the 3rd chapter, “The Afterlife,” independently, and were to write a summary with given terms.  This is an important chapter in the book—we’ll discuss it during our next class session.

Two vocabulary exercises are due on Friday, June1.
