Mrs. Wilson's Language Class
March 30- April 3
We did a fun activity this week dealing with subtitles. I selected a few short clips to watch with the students. They had to come up with the subtitles to fit into that clip. Some of the students were pretty creative. They seemed to enjoy this activity. The link is below.
April 10- Graphic novel should be read
April 13 & 14- Badger Testing Language Arts
April 13- Parent Teacher Conferences (3:30-7:30)
April 20-23- Badger Testing Math
With that being said, the students' total points earned did not change. So if a student received a 4 in one or more of the categories, it helped his/her overall grade.
Remember your child should be reading 30 minutes a night. That should average to about 30 pages a day. Your child should be annotating what they read. They need to have at least one annotation for every 10 pages. They will then have to conference with me about the book for those pages to count.
For every 500 pages, students will earn a fun lunch in. We will be holding these on Wednesdays. For 3,000 pages, we will be hosting a movie night (after school). For 5,000 pages, we are looking at doing an off site trip; possibly bowling. When it looks like we have a number of students getting close to these benchmarks, we will be setting a date and getting more details out to parents.
This new challenge rewards those students who are readers and will hopefully motivate other students to become readers as well.
