Woohoo! We made it through the week, and now we have a three-day weekend!
I took up summer reading essays today in class, and reminded you that if you have not yet brought your classroom community item, to please see if you can get it this weekend.
We then discussed one of the most famous parts of the Odyssey – the cave of the cyclops. Students read the short story “Blindness” (Blindness Story) and answered some questions (turned in during class – please see me to make this up).
Homework for the weekend was to finish PIE Paragraph #2 (PIE Paragraph 2) and to study for your quiz on Tuesday (over Odyssey Vocabulary List 1, verbs, and some review questions on nouns). I showed you some resources for studying under the “Vocabulary” and “Grammar” tabs of the website.
