It was quite a whirlwind day today!
Our warm-up was to read our free choice books for 10 minutes. Homework was to read for 45 minutes tonight, and tomorrow’s warm-up will also be reading, so please make sure you have your book.
I told you that you need to have your copy of Ella Minnow Pea by Friday, September 26.
I also told you that the Pre-AP teachers and I have asked you to compile all of your HUB responses for your self-selected summer reading (The Joy Luck Club, Life of Pi, and The Kite Runner) into a Word document, print it, and give it to me by Thursday. This will help us to make sure that we see all of your work when we give you a grade. Here’s a sample. Hunger Games Warm
Students then worked on annotating a characterization word sheet that will be a resource for us throughout the year. Character Trait Words
We looked at some of your graded writing, but then I took it back up to keep in your portfolios – I think it will be nice for you to look back at all that you have accomplished in May! 🙂
