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

My name is Mrs. Carole Scannell and I am the new 7th grade Reading and Language teacher.  I have been a parishioner for twenty years, and been involved in a few church activities.  I have taught at a few different schools in the past, 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 April 29th

Posted on Apr 29, 2019

This week in reading, we will finish up our short story called "After Twenty Years" by O. Henry.  We will test on this iconic story and then read another short piece by O. Henry called "Ransom of Red Chief".  We will compare the two pieces and find what they have in common.  In writing, we will continue to work on our compare/contrast piece taking a side on whether the movie or the written word was better.  All of the directions have been given to the students.  This will be due on Friday, May 3rd.  In Language, we will finish up working on the verbs this week.  Welcome back to all who have been sunning in the warm weather while the rest of us fought off the snow this past weekend.  We have a very short time left in 7th grade, so let's make it our most productive!

Week of April 8th

Posted on Apr 08, 2019

This week in reading, we will read our short story written by O. Henry called After Twenty Years.  We will introduce our two characters, Silky Bob and Jimmy Wells.  We will go through the plot pyramid and find all of the different parts of the story, and of course go over the vocabulary as well.  In language, we are going to be working on our action verbs and our linking/helping verbs that we use to make our sentences flow properly.  Finally in writing, we are working on our essay to close out The Outsiders.  The students have to write about the community that the Greasers and the Socs lived in and how that community helped them or hurt them.  These final essays will be due on Friday, 4/12.

We survived the Aspire tests and the arrival of the chicks, so now we can get back on schedule.  Easter break will begin at 2:30 on Friday, 4/12 and continue through Wednesday, 4/24.  The teachers have an event to attend downtown on Tuesday, 4/23 and Wednesday, 4/24 so we will be back in school Thursday, 4/25.  Have a restful Easter break!

Week of April 1st.

Posted on Apr 01, 2019

We have finished our third and final novel, The Outsiders.  This week we will test on the story and begin to work on our essay about the importance of a loving community.  All of the instructions will come home for you to see.  We are still working on our four types of sentences to help us in our writing.  Finally, we are working on our character autopsies with The Outsiders.  Each of the students had to choose a character from the story and pull out what made that character strong, or in conflict.  They are working very hard on these and they are beautiful.

Don't forget that this week is ASPIRE TESTING which means chrome books have to be charged, rest needs to happen,and a positive attitude!!!

Our chicks hatched!!!!  We have six beautiful babies chirping away in the classroom which will add to the excitement of the week:)
