Friday, November 9

Your last JLC reading guide is due on Monday (The Joy Luck Club Reading Guide 16)!

Other things to keep in mind:

  1. You need to have your character chart finished by Monday as well.
  2. You’ll have a quiz over CMC Vocab List 1 and conjunctions on Monday, so Vocab.com and NoRedInk need to be complete by Sunday night.
  3. We’re watching an edited version of The Joy Luck Club after school on Monday — if you want to watch it with us, please bring your permission slip! The movie will start right after school and end at 6:10 PM.

Wednesday, November 7

Today we talked about the first Count of Monte Cristo vocabulary list. You will have a quiz over those words and conjunctions on Monday. Please remember that your NoRedInk and Vocab.com will also be due Sunday night.

Speaking of the Count of Monte Cristo, if you would like to get a copy of the book, this is the version that you need. You can also bring $7.50 to school to order it.

Finally, your reading guide for today (The Joy Luck Club Reading Guide 15) will be due on Friday, not tomorrow. 🙂

Friday, October 26

Important Announcement: Today I passed out permission slips for our field trip to the Chinese Community Center on Thursday, November 8. Please try to bring those back on Monday (or if not Monday, Tuesday). Also, it would be a big help if we could have some parents help chaperone, so see if yours are interested in coming with us!

In class today, we began with a discussion of the challenges faced by the second generation of women in The Joy Luck Club. After that, we had a lesson on pronouns — please see the grammar section of the website to review those materials.

You don’t have any homework over the weekend, but your quiz on Monday will be over JLC Vocab List 2 and pronouns.
