The root of the week is PEND= to weigh, hang, pay . Quiz will be Friday.
For the rest of the year, we are concentrating on what make a story or elements of plot.
A cold read on the elements of plot will be Tuesday. This is another chance for students to earn an Owl!
3rd period: We will be reading the book, Red Kayak. This week we will read chapters 4-7. All students have been given a copy of the book to keep for the entire unit. Students are encouraged to take their book home with them to read or reread chapters. There will be assessments given every chapter. Students are allowed to use their books for the tests.
There is no assigned book for this class and no daily homework. However each week our class will have a root of the week. On Monday, each student will get a list of 10 words that all contain the same root. We will study the words during the week with the quiz on Friday. Students will need to study their list for the quiz on Friday. A complete list of the root words can be found on my website as a PDF file.(Look under SECOND nine week root word lists.)
