Today we discussed the parts of speech grammar review for the final exam. Please use that to help you prepare! Remember that our next reading guide is due on Friday.
Today we talked about The Count of Monte Cristo (the next reading guide — CMC Reading Guide 7 — is due Friday). Students then worked on the grammar review for the final. Please bring that completed tomorrow so that we can talk about it!
Today students wrote their final exam essays. Please remember that CMC Reading Guide 6 is due tomorrow!
Today we continued to talk about CMC and students finished their vocabulary review projects. The next reading guide is due on Tuesday (CMC Reading Guide 6).
Please remember that on Monday you will write your final exam essay (Journey Essay Prompt). You may have your prompt page with notes, but not a rough draft.
Also, because of the bad weather, I am allowing everyone to watch the extra credit movie over the weekend (The Man in the Iron Mask Viewing Guide – 2017). This is due on Monday, and must be totally your own work. I think that you can see the movie for free on Amazon Prime, but if you don’t have that, it should just be $2 or $3 to stream.
After our discussion of The Count of Monte Cristo today, students worked in small groups on their vocabulary projects.
Also, we will have an extra credit movie on Friday — The Man in the Iron Mask!
We spent all of today on our grammar and vocabulary quiz. Please consider how you did on this when making a plan for what and how much you need to study for your final exam. If you were baffled by some of the grammar questions, you might want to brush up!
Please remember that RG 4 for The Count of Monte Cristo is due tomorrow!
Today in class we had a lesson on interjections (see the grammar section of the website) and looked at an article on the psychology of revenge. Please don’t forget to have CMC RG 3 ready for tomorrow!
On Wednesday, we discussed the new developments at the Chateau d’If in the Count of Monte Cristo. We also talked about our last CMC vocabulary list (#3).
The next reading guide (CMC Reading Guide 3) is due on Friday.
Today we had a lesson on prepositions (please see the grammar section of the website). You practiced writing sentences using prepositions in a number of different ways, and then you did a short activity on NoRedInk. I also gave you CMC Reading Guide 3 (CMC Reading Guide 3), which will be due on Friday. Please remember that #2 is due tomorrow. If you are at all confused or having trouble following the plot, please don’t give up — we’ll talk about everything tomorrow.
