Today we acted out the Trojan War. There is nothing to make up -- just sorry that you missed the day's activity! Make sure you read "Paris and Queen Helen" in the textbook if you want some of the important back story before we read The Odyssey.
DUE TODAY: 8 Boxes with explanation, parent signature on syllabus slip
Today we took our student ID photos. If you were absent, please talk to the front office to find out when you can get your picture taken.
We set up our interactive notebooks (composition books) today. This was a multi-step process; please see Mrs. Baker if you were absent so that she can show you what you need to do and provide you with the necessary supplies.
In the remaining time, we looked at the pre-reading information about The Odyssey. We read pages 1025-1031 with our groups, taking chunks and writing 3-4 key points down for each section. We are gathering these key points together to jigsaw into one complete set of notes.
HOMEWORK: None :) Have a great weekend!
Today we took the mandatory Foundations of English Screener exam. If you were absent, you will need to come talk to Mrs. Baker about scheduling a make-up test.
Today's homework is to do the second part of the "Eight Boxes of Me" activity. Please choose SIX of the boxes. For each of the six boxes, write a paragraph explaining why you chose to draw that. For the purpose of this assignment, a paragraph should be 4-6 sentences. This is due Friday.
Remember that you also need your composition notebook and your syllabus form by Friday.
