1-9-12 Period 5

Welcome back from the weekend everyone! Today was the typical Monday in Smith's class. We started off by looking at our homework for the next few nights which consists of~
  • Reading 1984 pages 224- 298
  • Being prepared for tomorrows fishbowl
  • Completing the CSAP packet
We then moved on to our daily grammar work. This week's sentences are:
  •  my friend alex plays tennis
  • our friend tom is the next president after obama
Try to see if you can do Monday's exercise by deciding which parts of speech are in the sentences. Hint: We incorporated PROPER NOUNS into our parts of speech this week.

After we finished our daily grammar practice, we were free to work on our CSAP packets and read 1984/Little Brother.  While we were working Mrs. Smith called each of us up to discuss our CSAP scores from last year to what areas we could improve upon. After that, we continued to work individually up to the bell.

A Special Reminder- Cory Doctorow and Daniel Pink will be skyping in with us on the following dates-
  • 8:30-9:30-Tuesday, January 31-Cory Doctorow
  • 8:30-9:30-Friday, May 4- Daniel Pink
Please speak with your second hour teachers to discuss attending these events!

Happy Monday!
