Holy smokes I've been falling behind with your updates! My apologies.
We've been rocking & rolling in English 10 and doing our best to finish up Lord of the Flies in time to put a cherry on top before Thanksgiving Break.
Last week was Veteran's Day activities, a day off, and a send-off for the SMHS football team.
But for the sake of continuity and laying it all out, here's what we've been working on:
Chapters 8, 9, and 10 reading
Say Something activity
The Beastie collage project, and
The Box-in-a-box theme graphic organizer
Tomorrow and Friday, we will finish up the book, and prep for our end-of-novel Socratic seminar. Hooray!
Yowza! It took me a minute to get this update updated!
Here was our week:
Monday: Thank a Veteran letter writing activity
Tuesday: LOTF film enrichment
Wednesday: Talking with the Text group activity (pics below!)
Thursday: Chapter 6 reading & Popsicle stick Say Something
Friday: Chapter 7 Reader's Theater
You guys did a GREAT job last week responding to more student centered activities that required you to "get after it" a bit more. Let's keep it up!
Last week began with a trip to James Rumsey, followed by a day of questioning, Read What You Want Day, and two days of LOTF group reading.
It was a bit disjointed, but we'll circle our wagons this upcoming week.
Here are your links & handouts:
Tuesday, 10.27 -- Costas Levels of Questioning
Thursday & Friday, 10.29-20 -- LOTF Group reading & questioning task
LOTF Chapter 4-5 Reading Quiz MONDAY, 11.2
