6 ELA Week 1
Students should bring home:
2-3 independent reading books, handout packet (5 attachments), chromebook and ELA spirals
Daily: Students should check Google Classroom (GC) and Mrs. Schiller’s blog for assignments and updates
**Students will read from their independent reading novel a minimum of 25 minutes daily (this will count as part of your classwork responsibilities)
Students, I will be available on Google Classroom and email between 9:00 and 12:00 each day, but I will also check emails and ELA classroom during other hours, as well. Ask questions if you’re not sure! We are all new to this, so it’s okay to ask! Take care of yourselves. :)
Monday, 3/16: No school--no formal assignments
Tuesday, 3/17: Last day to submit narrative--double check review sheet before submission Share with firstname.lastname@example.org by 4:00 p.m.Book Conference Form (use 3/17 as the date) should be filled out completely.Before you set your goal, remember you will be reading for 25 minutes each day, and your goal should reflect that. Push yourself to read a little more this trimester.
Wednesday, 3/18: Follow directions and complete the “Punctuating Dialogue” worksheet in the packet. *you may use the “cheat sheet” in your spiral to check your work
Go to GC for the “Punctuating Dialogue” Quizlet
Thursday, 3/19: Begin checking Google Docs for returned narratives with comments. You can make edits to narratives once they have been checked. All narratives will have notes/edits by Friday at 4:00 p.m.
Make sure you are reading for 25 minutes (minimum) each day. All students will take at least one AR when they return to classes.
Friday, 3/20: Check Google Docs for returned narratives with comments. You will make edits to narratives once they’ve been checked. You will receive credit if you “resolve” your issues on your narrative. I do receive an alert when you make changes/corrections to your document, and many of you have already done this.
Friday Update: ** Because some students didn’t receive the “Eliminating Passive Voice” assignment in the packet, I am making this an optional Friday assignment. It’s great practice, but it is optional.
(Optional) Complete the “Eliminating Passive Voice” assignment in the packet. You may use the “Helping Verbs Song” slide in GC to help.
Have a good weekend!
