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 October 26th

Welcome back to another full week of school with Halloween in the background!  On Friday, October 30th, the junior high can wear black/orange and be out of uniform.  For reading this week, we will be finishing up with our first novel Crossover with different activities like cause/effect, plot pyramid, questions, and quiz.  In writing we will be using a choice board to pick from nine different activities, ultimately choosing three to work on.  In language we will continue to work through our parts of speech.

Thanks to all who have been working very hard to follow the Covid protocol and wear their masks, wash their hands, and keep social distance.  If we all work together, we will continue to have the privilege of going to school at St. John Fisher!!!

Welcome back to a full week of classes!  This week in reading we are going to start with a quiz on the second quarter of Crossover, and then begin to read the third quarter.  We are going to spend some time going over the theme of the story, which we will then use to write our paragraphs for this week.  In language, we are going to go over some of the other parts of speech such as commas and quotation marks.  Let's continue to work hard and follow the safety protocol so we continue to have the privilege of coming to class at Saint John Fisher!

Week of October 12th

Posted on Oct 12, 2020

Welcome back after a long and restful weekend!  The colors are popping out of the trees and our first half of the first trimester is up already.  That means that progress reports will be issued for anyone falling behind, on Wednesday, October 14th.  All work that is missing, needs to be handed in by tomorrow if you want credit for it!

This week in reading, we will continue to read our novel Crossover by Kwame Alexander.  We have already read through the 1st Quarter, and this week we will get through the 2nd quarter.  Along with reading, we will work on the vocabulary and some character profiles.  We will of course do some questions, and our little 10 question quiz.  In language, we are still working on our verbs, but we will also work on adjectives.  In writing, we will finish up our character trait basketballs and work on some ideas regarding why hard work is a good thing.  Let's start the 2nd half of the trimester off strong!

Week of October 5th

Posted on Oct 04, 2020

Welcome to October!!!  We made it through our first month of new rules and regulations.  This week is Spirit Week and each day the students can dress up differently.  Please refer to Mrs. Nash's not on the specifics.

This week in reading we will test on our story Women in Aviation on Monday, and then we will begin our first novel The Crossover by Kwame Alexander.  This is a story about twin boys who try their best to be just like Dad.  This story is written in prose which is very different from most novels.  We will go through the vocabulary, the background knowledge as it comes up in the story.  In language, we will continue to practice connotation/denotation, along with verb tenses.  In writing, we will write about a challenge in our lives.

As you know, progress reports are right around the corner, so we want to make sure all of our work is being handed in on time so that we aren't penalized for tardiness.  Enjoy the week with its changing colors and temperatures!
