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 4th

Posted on Oct 03, 2021

Welcome back to October!  7th grade goes by so quickly, enjoy the moments.  This week has a lot going on...Tuesday, 10/5 is school pictures, dress nicely and smile. Wednesday is Parent-Teacher Conferences from 4-7.  Thursday is Parent-Teacher Conferences as well  from 1-7, kids are dismissed at 12:00 so send them with a snack.

This week in reading, we are finishing up Unit One with our article "The Police Stop That Changed a Tennager's Life".  We will do our plot pyramid and vocabulary along with the questions.  On Thursday, we will test on the two stories together.  When we return from  our long weekend, I will start our first novel The Crossover

In language, we are going to play around with CONJUNCTIVE ADVERBS.  We know that adverbs modify the action verb, so these will answer the questions, why, where and how.

In writing, we will finish up our first EXPLANATORY paper.  The students have chosen either the Pro/Con side of technology use in our world today.  We will finish up the concluding paragraph on Monday, and then peer edit to find all the mistakes, and then print them out.
