Today the students took their test over everything we have covered in class so far this school year. This includes: central idea, theme, summarizing, author’s purpose, point of view, citing evidence, how to use the RACE strategy, etc. I promised the students they could have two days on this test so they did not feel rushed. Many will use tomorrow to finish their test.
- Read 20-30 minutes to prepare for the November essay due on 11/30.
- Core: 30 minutes of MobyMax “Reading Skills Informational” is due by Saturday.
- Advanced: No Red Ink Active and Passive voice practice is due by Saturday. This is not an essay lesson to learn and many people struggle with it. We will review a bit in class tomorrow as well.
Tonight is Literacy Night at school from 6-8 PM. We will host the school spelling bee, a poetry cafe with sandwiches, cookies, and other pastries, a literature game through Kahoot!, etc. Childcare is also available in the library where we will have storytime and color some bookmarks. It should be a fun event!
