06. Week of October 2, 2017

Hi Parents, 

Here's what's going on in ELA this week: 

1. Memoir Writing - The students will continue working their memoirs this week.  The students are typing their drafts directly into Google Docs.  The goal is the finish the 1st draft this week, so they will need so spend time writing at home as well.  The rubric for the memoir can be found in the File Cabinet.  Please ask your child to show you his/her writing, so you can see what he/she is working on and give a few suggestions.  This week, we are continuing to work on adding thoughts, dialogue and action to to show what happened in the memory instead of just telling.  The final draft, which will be due on Monday, 10/16, needs to be a minimum of 1.5 -3 pages typed. 

2. Academic Vocabulary - The words this week are concept and consistent. 

3. Play permission slip - The 6th grade class will be attending a play by DePaul University on Thursday, 10/5. 

Have a great rest of your week, and please let me know if you have any questions.
