Monday, March 23

I am a March baby. My birthday month has always been a weird one. The snow last night, which continued this morning, did not surprise me. Our weather getting close to 60 on Wednesday (which is my birthday) doesn’t surprise me. Even moving learning online wasn’t much of a surprise – change is sometimes the only constant thing we have 🙂

Marking period 3 started January 23, and ends March 27th. We were directed to use the grades we currently have for MP3. If your student has late work, they can submit it in one of two ways: 1) Google Classrooom 2) Email me a picture if it ABSOLUTELY cannot be put into a Google Doc. Reading Journals that are late should be submitted in Google Classroom. ALL LATE WORK FOR MP3 will be DUE BY WEDNESDAY, MARCH 25th.

THANK YOU TO ALL STUDENTS WHO HAVE SUBMITTED LATE WORK!!! Per the front office, any work assigned BEFORE 3/13 can be graded – for our class, this includes reading journals and the Princess Penelope writing (which is summative).

Students who HAVE NOT turned in their Princess Penelope writing will need to type it in a Google Doc and email it to me by March 23rd. I already put the original paragraph (with identified figurative language) in Google classroom last week.


A new reading journal will be posted in Google Classroom today, and will be due Monday, March 30th.

There will be a summative Greek roots quiz THIS FRIDAY (covering the material from the quizzes given on: December 13, February 7th, and March 6th). Study sheets are posted in Google classroom. YOU WILL NEED TO TAKE THIS QUIZ AT HOME. HAVE INTEGRITY WHILE YOU COMPLETE IT PLEASE 

I will not be posting a new Greek roots sheet this week. Once we are able to move to a more cohesive type of online learning, I absolutely will post them. Expect an update after April 6. 

This week, students will need to complete: late work, their reading journal, two Nearpod activities and designated IXL activities. A work list will be posted in Google Classroom.

In the coming weeks, students will complete activities in Google Classroom (including taking notes, completing task cards, doing Google Slides, and using coding to practice ELA skills. We will continue with 15-20 minutes of daily reading, reading journals, and IXL skills practice. Additional literacy activities will be added and explained as needed.
