Here we are, the end of Quarter 1! Let your friends know!
Well, technically…pay close attention below for deadline updates!
NOTE: ANY MISSED SPELLING TESTS OR RE-TAKES MUST BE COMPLETED BY THURSDAY OCTOBER 10th by 4:30pm for QUARTER ONE!
As always, we will begin the week with a spelling test and a new spelling observation and list. Since we have a three day weekend next weekend, your spelling test will fall on October 21st.
After our spelling routine, we will WATCH Act 1 of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. For homework, you will write a compare and contrast paragraph looking at the film and the play.
We will begin Act 2 by being introduced to new vocabulary and then listening to Act 2, Scene 1.
We will finish Act 2, scene 2 and discuss how the act has added to the plot of the play!
If you are in period A you will have an independent workday on day 4. Use this day to work on your quarter one independent reading assignment.
If you are in period B, D, or E then you will be on the field trip with me and Ms. Daza on Friday!
