I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I know today was rough on the kids (and the teachers) to get back up and ready for a new day of school. It was nice to see so many smiling faces and hear their stories of visiting with family. 🙂
Today in class we started discussing an author’s argument and how to best support an argument. We watched the documentary “Plastic Paradise” last week and connected it to what we were learning in class today. We talked about the argument from the documentary and some of the supporting reasons that the author used in the documentary. We then used our workbook pages and practiced finding an author’s claim and finding their evidence on small reading passages. We will continue this tomorrow.
Several students have been asking me about their December book essay. Students will have an essay due on December 31, however I’ve encouraged them to turn their essay in on Google Classroom before they leave for winter break. However, they do have until December 31 to turn it in online.
- Read 20-30 minutes to prepare for the essay due on Wednesday!!! Turn it in through Google Classroom.
- NO MobyMax and No Red Ink this week!
