Advanced students began a partner project today with a partner or group of their choice. This project will be due on Monday, October 22. The project will count as a test grade and the presentation of the project will count as a daily grade. Students will be given class time to work on the project on 10/11, 10/12, 10/17 and 10/18. We will begin presenting as soon as students start finishing up their work. The project choices and grading checklists can be viewed on Google Classroom under Mrs. Hulsey's 5th period Advanced Reading Class.
Advanced test over chapters 1-13 of Fever 1793 on Google Classroom. The test consists of 20 multiple choice questions, 5 short answer questions and one constructed response (2-3 paragraphs). Once students finished the test, they were given a chance to go to the library if they needed to and to read for Reading Counts. The next set of Reading Counts points are due on Friday, 12/14.
Kahoot review for test tomorrow over chapters 1-13 of Fever 1793.
Today we discussed context clues. What are they and how do you recognize them when you are reading? Students received a printed handout (notes) as well. We played a figurative language game to test our skills and completed an assessment for a daily grade.
Reminder: Vocabulary test tomorrow and Reading Counts points are due this Friday, 10/5!
Today in class, we read another chapter of Fever 1793. Students completed the 7-9 chapter questions for a daily grade and students were given time to take Reading Counts tests if they needed to. Points are due this Friday, October 5th!
On Thursday, all classes went to the library to work on Reading Counts. 20 Points are due Friday, October 5 for advanced students. Students were given time to read books and take tests. Students who had already acquired their points were given the option to free read or work in Makerspace in the library.
On Friday, we reviewed the ten Fever 1793 vocabulary terms for our upcoming vocabulary test next Wednesday, October 3. Afterward, we read chapters 10 and 11, completed chapter summaries in our digital notebooks, and watched an EdPuzzle video about yellow fever today in Angola.
Today we read through chapter 9 of Fever 1793. Advanced students updated their summaries on their digital notebooks for a daily grade. Afterward, students worked with a partner to find figurative language in the chapters that we have read thus far. The team in the class who found and listed the most figurative language on slide 9 of their digital notebook received a sheet of rebel passes! We will be going to the library tomorrow, so please bring your library book. Students who have earned their 20 Reading Counts points and have no missing assignments will be given Makerspace time as a reward.
On Monday, students reviewed point of view via a mini lesson. The PowerPoint and notes can be found on Google Classroom. They also completed questions for chapters 3-5 of Fever 1793.
On Tuesday, advanced students read through chapter 8 of Fever 1793 and caught up on all summaries in the interactive notebooks. Students made up any missing work and took Reading Counts tests. Students also received a vocabulary study guide today in class for the upcoming vocabulary test on Wednesday, October 3. Study materials can also be found on Google Classroom.
On Wednesday, students reviewed their vocabulary words by typing a story that incorporated all terms. Afterward, students read their library books and took Reading Counts tests if they needed to.
On Thursday, students took the vocabulary quiz. Afterward we updated our digital notebooks and read chapter 5 of Fever 1793.
Today in class we read chapters 3 and 4 of Fever 1793. We then took a Google forms assessment with multiple choice questions over chapters 1 and 2 for a daily grade. We updated the summaries in our digital notebook and students were given some time to read and explore 18th century videos pertaining to yellow fever.
