 Current Assignment: Stations
Literature: The goal for this week is for the students to read "My Favorite Chaperone."
                    They will read the story in groups to practice reading aloud.
                     The groups will also provide them with support as they answer the guiding questions on Schoology.
                     Students will apply the vocabulary the practiced last week: plot, exposition, rising action, climax,
                     resolution, conflict, internal and 
 external conflict, dynamic and static characters, 
                     and point of view (1st, 2nd, 3rd limited, and 3rd omniscient).

Reading:        By the end of the week, students should be 1/3 of the way through their novel
                      They should have completed the first reading journal on Schoology
                  Do not submit the reading journal until you have bolded the literary vocabulary
                     we have been discussing this week!

  words next week: plot, exposition, rising action, climax, resolution, conflict, internal and 

  external conflict, dynamic and static characters, and point of view (1st, 2nd, 3rd limited, and

   3rd omniscient).

         I tried my best to make sure students had time to get 1/3 of their book read.  

         Students need a little more time to complete the first journal entry.

 


Requirements for Lesson Planning

Small Groups:
I am slowly going to introduce students to the stations routines. During stations, I will be pulling students for small group instruction. We are not there yet.

Vocabulary: It is early in the school year. Right now, I would like to start establishing routines and expectations.

Standards: 
CC.8.L.4.a Vocabulary Acquisition and Use: Use context (e.g., the overall meaning of a sentence or paragraph; a word’s position or function in a sentence) as a clue to the meaning of a word or phrase.
CC.8.L.4.d Vocabulary Acquisition and Use: Verify the preliminary determination of the meaning of a word or phrase (e.g., by checking the inferred meaning in context or in a dictionary).
CC.8.L.6 Vocabulary Acquisition and Use: Acquire and use accurately grade-appropriate general academic and domain-specific words and phrases; gather vocabulary knowledge when considering a word or phrase important to comprehension or expression.
