I hope everyone enjoyed their long snow weekend! School for the secondary students is back on today and we only have a couple days before our break for Christmas. So, here is the schedule for Ms. Barlow’s English classes:
Our only lesson this week is on Thursday. On that day you will be expected to turn in 1) Your Poetry Anthology (printed in color) and 2) Your Independent Reading Bookmark and explanation. During this lesson you’ll have a chance to share your work with your classmates. I had planned on giving you a party before Christmas, so if you want, you can bring snacks and drinks to share with your classmates to celebrate the holidays and all of the good work you’ve done! When you return from the break we will do review for the exam, but don’t worry, you don’t need to study because it is an exam that assesses skills, not content.
Please bring a printed copy of your story on Wednesday morning. You will have the lesson to peer-edit, so you MUST have your story with you! Your story will be due by 2:30, hard-copy, on Thursday. Period 1 on Thursday I will introduce something new, and if all goes well then we will have a party in our afternoon lesson! When you return from the break we will do review for the exam, but don’t worry, you don’t need to study because it is an exam that assesses skills, not content.
