Last week SOME of the students completed their reading group bookmark projects. I am in the process of grading those projects, but have entered NHIs in the grade book for those who have not turned in their projects. I have told the students that I have to submit interim grades the end of this week and 2-NHIs does impact their grades! I am still accepting these projects
This week we are reading a magazine article entitled, "The Cost of Winning." This article discusses the obsession athletes, and people, have with winning, but is winning always worth the cost? Injuries are just one of the long term effects that sports have on your body. Last week we took our pre-vocabulary assessment and the final vocabulary quiz is this Thursday. They have the vocabulary assignment to prepare them for the quiz, and it is attached to my site. On the left hand side of the page go to "FILES AND DOCUMENTS," where the file vocabulary frames are located.
Last week we took an exam on figurative language. This week the main goal is fact and opinion. Identifying facts and opinions from stories is the main emphasis of this story.
