Mrs. Zabroski and Mrs. Hookie
Students will have a quiz on Friday for chapters 1-8.
To go along with our lesson in reading, student's will be putting their sensory details to work by making a color poem. With these students will pick a color of their choice to describe using SEVEN senses: sight, sound, smell, touch, taste, emotion, connection. They will write them using metaphors so that they are not using comparisons, but more using the senses to bring the colors to life. Their finished products should be done and ready to come home next week before they leave for Thanksgiving break.
Students are full-steam-ahead on their independent study projects. We have completed our webs, as well as our formal outlines, which lay out the order of their reports as well as the main ideas for each report they will be writing. This week students will be pausing on their work with their independent studies so that I can teach them the proper research and notetaking skills to successfully piece together each report during this 3 month process. Below are some of the upcoming dates for our Independent Study Project:
11/16-11/20: Notetaking skills
11/23-11/24: Research and Notetaking for Report 1
11/30-12/4: Research and Notetaking for Report 1
12/7-12/10: Turning our notes into a written report
12/11-12/15: Work on draft for Report 1
12/16: Report 1 Draft Due
If you ever have any questions regarding your child's progress on their report, please email me and I will let you know.
