Elements of Fiction- Theme
I can define theme and identify a theme in a story.
Today we spent the entire day talking about theme. We took notes and practiced together using the notes and Power Point that you will find below.
I can identify the types of conflict.
I can define the parts of plot and identify them within a text.
If you missed today, your best option is to come to English during FLEX and get help, but I will provide some resources as well.
Plot is difficult to understand without some hands on help, but you can go to here for definitions and a basic explanation.
I can identify the setting within a text.
I can describe a character using the 5 parts of characterization.
Today we talked about the elements of fiction. These elements are the foundation of everything we do with fiction, so you need to learn them well. In order to fully learn what we learned in class you will need to come to English during FLEX time. However, I will provide copies of the Power Points and assignment we did.
Monday- Exploring Chromebooks
Today we got accustomed to using the school Chromebooks. Below you will see the instructions we used in class.
I can use the parts of speech to describe myself.
Part 1: Composition Notebooks
We spent the first part of class setting up our composition notebooks. Your composition notebooks are where you will write your Mustang Minutes and notes. If you were gone, or didn't have you comp book, here are the instructions.
After we finished that, we wrote 1/2 page. You, too, should write a story or response to the picture below on page 3 of your comp book. Remember, it needs to be 1/2 page.
Part 2: Personality Recipes
During the second period of class we reviewed parts of speech- specifically verbs, adverbs, nouns, and adjectives.
Next we looked at some recipes to see how they were formatted. Look at some examples by clicking here and then clicking on the yummy looking pictures. Notice the nouns, verbs, adjective, and adverbs in the recipes?
Next we made recipes for our personality. Instead of using actual food ingredients, our ingredients were things that made us into the people we are such as: family, sports, movies, books, cooking, hiking, awesomeness, energy, and friends.
Create your own personality recipe on page 5 of your comp book. (You can see an example of my personality recipe on the last slide of the Power Point below.)
I can practice and follow rules and procedures.
Today we learned the rules for behavior and how to function well in class. We looked at this Power Point and filled in the notes below.
First Day of School
I can describe a good class member.
Today we received disclosure documents. Disclosure documents need to be signed by parents and turned in by Friday. Here is a copy.
We spent the rest of the class describing a good classmate. We divided into groups and worked to decide what kind of a person a good classmate is, what a good classmate says and does, and what a good classmate is not. Once we decided what qualities a good classmate has, we voted on our class rules. Here are the rules that we came up with.
Term 3 Dead Day is Friday, March 2, 2018.
