1st Quarter Book Report, Character Wheel, is due this Friday, October, 25.
Wednesday (10/23) and Thursday (10/24)
Vocabulary words were reviewed. Study words on QUIZLET for tomorrow’s Quiz.
Lots of class time was alloted on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday for working on book report/character wheel
Sixth period students, see Monday’s entry.
In periods 5 and 7, we learned about and practiced a narrative/expository lead called STACCATO. The remaining class time was work time on left-overs assignments and book report (Character Wheel). Many students in period 5 used this time efficiently; too few period 7 students spent much time on task.
A new set of vocabulary words were taught today; in addition to the paper list/definitions, the words are on QUIZLET.com. The set is titled “The Landlady.”
After a few pre-reading activities (i.e. spelling chrysanthemum and dachshund and discussing Roald Dahl) we read “The Landlady.”
Post reading is to write a postcard from Billy Weaver (“The Landlady” protagonist) to a friend in London, Winifred. Requirements for the postcard are these:
- use a postcard-like voice or tone
- include 5 examples of foreshadowing
- proof read for mechanics/conventions accuracy
- Due 5th and 7th Tuesday (10/22); 4th and 6th Wednesday (10/23)
