Today we took our quiz over the second Count of Monte Cristo vocabulary list. Homework is the second CMC reading guide (CMC Reading Guide 2), which will be due on Wednesday.
We will also be having an extra credit movie after school on Friday! It’s Marie Antoinette by Sofia Coppola, and it should give you a strong sense of the visuals of the era, which I think should help in imagining the text of your novel.
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:
- You need to have your character chart finished by Monday as well.
- 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.
- 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.
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. 🙂
On Monday we took our vocab quiz and homework was the 13th story from JLC (The Joy Luck Club Reading Guide 13).
Today we continued discussing the book and had a lesson over conjunctions (the materials are under the grammar section). Homework is the next story (The Joy Luck Club Reading Guide 14).
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).
