I apologize for no posting on Friday or Monday, but the internet service was spotty or non-existent system-wide.
For Monday, you should have re-read "Jabberwocky" (459). You needed to read "If I Can Stop One Heart from Breaking" (33) and explicate using #1 and #6 on your explication guide. Answers should be recorded in your reading spirals under the poem's title with the sub-headings assigned ("Meaning" and "Tone")
Denotation and Connotation worksheet was also assigned to be placed in your spiral.
For today, you must write your Poem #1 using "If I Can Stop . . ." as the mentor text. It is due tomorrow in final form on loose leaf paper.
There is no Caesar's Test this week, as there is no school Friday and the field trip Thursday.
IF YOU HAVE NOT DONE SO, PLEASE BE SURE TO GET YOUR MONEY AND/OR PERMISSION SLIP IN TO YOUR HOMEROOM TEACHER TOMORROW! We are still missing a few students' permission slips.
