This week, students must submit their answers to text dependent questions for Staves Three and Four of A CHRISTMAS CAROL. Stave Two should've been turned in by now. This is also the last week for turning in all the CC Vocabulary words defined and used in sentences. They will have had at least three weeks to get this done.
Monday, students should be prepared for an assessment on Clauses and Compound/Complex Sentences. I've been forecasting this test for a while, and its time has finally come.
Students will also be assessed on identifying Figurative Language this Thursday.
One more thing: I will be grading journals/notebooks over the break. Some students have not been good about keeping up with these, despite the fact that I have preached their importance since day one. If there is no journal for me to grade, it will result in an F being entered into the gradebook. Please check with your young scholar about this.
It is hard to believe that half the school year has come and gone.
Thanks! - Mr. Nettles
