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 March 25th

Posted on Mar 25, 2019


this week in reading we will finish The Outsiders story.  We will work on the vocabulary from each of the chapters and the comprehension.  We will also start on our character autopsies.  Each of the students will choose one of the characters from the story and dig deep into what makes them tick.  This will also tie in with our writing for the week as well.  In language, we will continue to work on our sentence structure.  We will take the sentences apart to find the subjects and the predicates and then try to add additional clauses to the sentences.  Please say an extra prayer this week that our eggs hatch and we have healthy chicks in our classroom.  They go on "lockdown" today in preparation for the birth!!!  Please keep sick children home, we had so many out last week with this flu that is going around:(

Week of 3/18

Posted on Mar 18, 2019

This week in reading we will continue with the Outsiders.  We reach the most exciting part of the story, and will work on the vocabulary and the comprehension.  In language,  we will use the story structure of The Outsiders to work on the four types of sentences; simple, compound, complex, and compound/complex.  In writing, we are preparing for the Aspire tests, so we are practicing pulling outlines together to organize our thoughts for the writing prompts.  Please remember to keep sick children home...the germs are flying!  On Wednesday, 3/20 we are going to receive the sacrament of reconciliation in preparation for Lent.

Week of March 11th

In reading this week we have started reading our third novel, The Outsiders.  This story intertwines the lives of two rival groups; The Greasers, and The Socs.  We will work on comprehension and vocabulary with each chapter.  In language, we will use the Outsiders to work on subject/predicate and subject-verb agreement.  In writing we will practice with another Aspire writing prompt.  As you may have heard, room 101 is attempting to hatch some chicks.  we have twelve eggs in the incubator, and now we have to wait twenty-one days to see the magic!!!  Fingers crossed...

Week of March 4th

Posted on Mar 05, 2019

This week in reading we will finish up the short story The Lottery.  We are talking about the symbolism that takes place during the story.  We are going to compare the symbolism of Shel Silverstein's The Giving Tree as well.  The test for the story will also be given this week.  In language we are practicing independent and subordinate clauses to assist us in our writing.  In writing, we are practicing Aspire prompts and rewriting the ending of The Lottery.  Please remember that report cards come home on Wednesday, March 6th.  Please take this opportunity to discuss ways to improve and congratulate a successful trimester.
