Mrs.Carole Scannell Junior High Reading/Language - 7th

My name is Mrs. Carole Scannell and I am the 7th grade ELA teacher.  I have been a parishioner for more than twenty years, and been involved in a few church activities.  I have taught at a few different schools in the area, but look forward to my new adventure here at St. John Fisher.  My five children are all graduates of St. John Fisher which brings me great pride.

Week of December 17th

Posted on Dec 17, 2018

This week is filled with lots of Christmas excitement!  Today we will be able to listen to the Mother McAuley Accapella group sing, and Tuesday is the Band Concert, and Thursday, the Kindergarten play will be presented to the school children.  So let me wish all of you a very Merry Christmas filled with laughter and love.

In school this week the seventh graders will finish  up their literary analysis of Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer.  This is a great review tool for taking apart a story to find all of the different parts of a plot pyramid. In language, we will be working with adverbs and how they answer the questions how, when, and where of the verb.  We will begin The Giver when we return from Christmas break.

Please remember that Friday, 12/21 is an early dismissal at 12:30 and a prayer service at 11:30.  

Week of December10th

Posted on Dec 10, 2018

This week in Reading, we will test on The Christmas Carol.  We will also begin our literary analysis of Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer.  this will take all the elements of a plot pyramid and incorporate our new story into them.  We will begin with the exposition, then go to the rising action followed by the climax.  Next, we head to the falling action and finally to our resolution.  In language we are going to be working on degrees of comparison with our adjectives.  In writing, we will be sharing our renditions The Christmas Carol with our peers in author's chair.
