Mrs. J. Underhill
All students began reading independently today. Most students went to the library or found books off of my shelf, therefore, all students should be reading at least 20 minutes a day from now until the end of the year. We will be completing book reports on these independent novels, so be sure to read whenever you can!!
***Students have had 4 and 1/2 weeks to complete these projects and many students have used their time wisely and are well on their way to completing these projects. Many students have been coming to me during Flex and working diligently on these! Great work, peeps! I can't wait to see all of the wonderful projects you have created.
Students received directions to completing a portfolio for The Outsiders novel study we are doing in class. This assignment was handed out to the students February 21. These projects are due next Thursday, March 28.This means the students have had over 4 weeks to work on these. They were given some class time but they were told to be working on these during Flex and/or at home. I have had students coming into my Flex class on a steady basis BUT some students have not even started these projects! I encourage ALL of you to be working on these projects as they will make up over ½ of your final mark in this unit!
I have uploaded the guidelines for anyone who needs them. Come see me if you need any assistance and/or directions.
1. Tuff versus Tough posters and write-up
2. Questions for chapters 3 and 4
3. Questions for chapter 5
*****REMEMBER - your portfolio assignments are due at the end of the novel, so if you have the above assignments finished, you can work on your portfolio assignments.
Students will be working on a writing assignment for Of Mice and Men. This will be your work for the week. It is due Friday, March 15. This will be the only class time you will be given for this project, so use your time wisely.
I have uploaded the requirements below.
2. Do draft copy of poster (directions from sheet) - 7-10 pictures, symbols, and/or words for each.
