We are now fully into In the Footsteps of Crazy Horse. Kids are learning how to annotate a novel, find themes, and write objective summaries. Students are responsible for having their writing journals full of bell ringer tasks and these annotations we are now making. The journal will be graded.
Students will be tested on Complex Sentences mid-week.
Also, students will begin learning Greek and Latin Roots.
Last week I graded Making Inferences tests, and I just finished grading the most recent vocabulary test (putting it in Infinite Campus today). Time for retakes is going to run out soon, so encourage your child to get on top of it if he or she has anything to make up.
I am currently grading their 1st, 2nd, 3rd Person narrative projects. Some students turned in great looking work! Some students did not submit their projects. Again, time is rapidly running out.
Thanks for checking in. - JN
