I loved meeting so many of you at Back to School night yesterday! I know the evening can be a whirlwind, so if you have any questions, please feel free to email me firstname.lastname@example.org at any time.
This weekend (September 15-16), students should be doing two things:
- Completing their Reading Log minutes and two response questions on Google Classroom (if they haven’t done so already). If their bright green Reading Log packet is nowhere to be seen, there is an attachment of it on Google Classroom!
- Narrowing down their narrative idea to just ONE idea! The story must be true, involve them directly, and be focused on one event (for example, one thing that happened in Hawaii instead of the entire vacation!). To give you an idea, there is an example of the beginning of my narrative on the Google Classroom assignment attachment.
Language Arts: We are sharing our 5 items from home on Monday, Sept. 10, then we are spending the rest of the week starting our brainstorming and drafting for our narratives! At home: Students should be continuing to read so that they have a total of 3 hours reading at home (time will be spent in class as well). Reading Log #1 (bright yellow-green packet) is due Friday, September 14. This includes submitting at total of two responses on Google Classroom (questions to choose from for responses in the packet).
Social Studies: In class, we will be examining the legacy of the Roman Empire. Students will have formative assessments in class based on the notes they take in their spirals.
Look forward to seeing everyone Thursday at 6:30 p.m. for Back to School Night! 🙂 —-Kirsten
