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 November 30th

Posted on Nov 29, 2020

Welcome back after a long and restful Thanksgiving break!  I hope everyone got to spend time with family to catch up and eat.  Now we are back and it is the end of the first trimester, and the beginning of a new month.  Let's try and remember the lessons of Advent , anticipating the arrival of the Christ child, and enjoying the peace that comes with that.

In reading this week, we will continue with our short story "The Camera Does Lie" and talk about the author's purpose, and the plot pyramid, along with the story questions and test.  In language, we are going to discuss correlative conjunctions and how both conjunctions need to be used.  In writing, we are going to focus on what's real and what is a figment of our imagination.

Trimester One ends Monday, November 30th and report cards will come home Thursday, December 3rd.

Week of November 16th

Welcome November with your cold temperatures and dark nights.  As we enter week 11, we will work on this week's Bellringers.  In reading, we will work on our new short story called "Heartbeat".  We will do the vocabulary that goes with it, and talk about character traits.  We will also work on the plot pyramid and the story questions.  In language, we are going to be playing with subject/verb agreement nd context clues.  In writing, we are going to try something new this week, an infographic!  Our story deals with self esteem and confidence, so we are going to see if we can find pictures from advertising that go along with that theme.

Please continue to catch up on missing work if you have been at home, and continue to follow our Covid protocol; wash your hands, wear your mask, and social distance!!  Together we can do this:)

I hope all of you spent the majority of the weekend outside enjoying this magnificent weather!  This week in reading we will finish up Unit One with our test on Wednesday.  We will work on vocabulary for our article," A Police Stop That Changed This Teenager's Life"  as well as questions and comparing our characters.  In language, we will finish up our four different types of sentences as well as conjunctive adverbs.  In writing, we will finish up our discussion on poetry, and begin our informational essay that will use our essential question from Unit One..What helps people rise to face difficulties??

Please be aware that our first trimester is coming to a close, so all missing work needs to be handed in.
