VanderWall/Wedick's ELA Class
Week of 8/29-9/2
Last Week in Greyhound ELA:
Our part of speech of the week was the preposition, a commonly confused type of word. We practiced identifying and writing prepositional phrases. We finished out this review by drawing treasure maps and writing out directions to the X marking the spot by using prepositions.
Students paired up to draw and write their treasure maps.
Taking a Break
After our Stem List 11 test on Friday, students relaxed with a short game of Silent Ball.
These students were diligently working on their Treasure Map mini projects.
We are about halfway through Quarter One, and only a handful of students have taken and passed AR tests. We have visited the library three times at this point, and all students in our classes have access to our classroom library as well as Overdrive (a source for digital books accessed through the CHC library website). Students have no excuse to not be reading.
It is homework that all students read their AR books for ten to fifteen minutes every night.
