Wednesday, October 2

Today in class, we will:

  1. talk about the first part of the Penelopiad.
  2. look at some notes and exercises on adjectives and adverbs (adjectives and adverbs)
  3. assign homework for tonight — the next section from the Penelopiad (The Penelopiad – The Maids) and these questions (The Penelopiad Part 2 Reading Guide).


  1. Our next book will by The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan. The school does not have enough copies to check out to every single student, so if you want to make sure that you have one that you can read at home, I recommend getting your own copy. You can buy it on Amazon or another online bookstore, go to a local bookstore like Barnes and Noble or Half Price Books, or bring $15 to the school and I will order one for you. You will need your book by next Wednesday.
  2. Extra credit movie after school on Friday!
