Today we are going over the second CMC vocabulary list — you will have a quiz over that the Monday that we return.
A couple of fun things to check out:

Happy Monday! We took our first Count of Monte Cristo vocabulary quiz today. If you still have a Joy Luck Club book, please bring it to turn in tomorrow. And no homework tonight — woohoo!
Your last JLC reading guide is due on Monday (The Joy Luck Club Reading Guide 16)!
Other things to keep in mind:
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. 🙂
Happy Thursday! We continued to talk about our novel today. Homework for tonight is the next short story (The Joy Luck Club Reading Guide 12). Your quiz on Monday will only be over vocabulary, not grammar. Please make sure that you are working on Vocab.com (due Sunday).
Today we did some pronouns practice on NoRedInk, looked at your next JLC list on Vocab.com, and got a jump start on tonight’s reading (The Joy Luck Club Reading Guide 10).
We are taking our grammar and vocabulary quiz in class today. For homework, please make sure to read your next JLC story (The Joy Luck Club Reading Guide 9).
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.
