Soc Studies: send week 29 think and review through google classroom---by Friday
Remember: when on IXL---don't keep going to get to 100%. try for 80-90%. If you haven't made it in 30 minutes STOP. --You're done with that subject for the day. Move on to a new subject---same thing--30 minutes or 80-90%---whichever comes first
I am checking IXL to see who is doing the assignments---so you may need to backtrack to do them
Regarding IXL: I have cut back your assignments so you are only doing 1 in each class. Please DO NOT keep working until you get 100%. I think that could be a problem---if you hit 80-90% stop---or 30 minutes on-line for that subject. Don't just keep going because you think you must get 100%

Please log into google classroom and send assignments through there. No more google docs to my email. Thank you
I have set up google classroom. Please go on Mr. Dimsey's blog to access his video on how to use it if you do not know how. You can also email him: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Good luck! Don't forget to check in each day---and start sending assignments through google classroom
Miss all of you!!
Just a quick note: I have been receiving assignments already!!! Great job---type on Google docs and share to my email. I am printing them out as I get them.
I will probably be available online from 8:30 a.m./9 a.m. until 2/3 p.m. Though I'm still here today at 3:30 p.m. Please be flexible! I will do the best I can---as I'm sure you will. This is new to all of us--so just relax and we will get through it.
This is going to be a new and different way of learning. I will post the assignments---and add to it with web sites and other activities you may work on.
UPDATE: Parents--I have just been informed I need to take roll every day---please email me every day so I can keep track of students---thank you
Parents: The students have their research outline, notecards, and introduction to begin writing their report. I know you will want to help----but their paper needs to be their own. I have gone over how it works. Start with the introduction. Each Roman Numeral on their outline is a new paragraph. They should have their notecards in order of their outline. They need to then weave all the notecards within that category into complete, cohesive sentences. They end with a conclusion, which I have also reviewed with them. I have also sent home a sample of how it should look when typed. I NEED the written copy turned in, along with their notecards and internet information----so do not throw away.
They have a lot of time to work on this, so I don't want them stressing over it.
I will give you the week---and it can be done over the week---by Friday. I will update and add to it. No stressing.
Make/write cards to the people at either Hampshire or Park Merced. Remember---they cannot have any visitors and might enjoy a happy card and note. Tell them what school and grade and something fun to help make them smile. Address it to Guest

English: I am listing assignments by the day I have in lesson plan book---you may do them anytime during the week
Adjectives: Mon: p. 222, 223 Really review pg 222----then do page 223--follow directions!
An adjective tells what kind and how many. You need to know what a noun is to find the adjective---hopefully you haven't forgotten nouns. The directions on pg. 223 say you DO have to write the sentence. Underline the adjective--and draw an arrow to the noun it describes. Look at the example.
Tues: p. 224, 225. Review p. 224---then do page 225. Read pg. 224 for understanding. Look at the blue box on pg. 224 for examples. Page 225 just says to write the correct word.
Thurs: pg. 226, 227 Review p. 226---then do page 227. Check out pg. 226 for understanding. The green box gives examples. Do page 227. Directions say only to write the correct form of adjective.
Fri: p. 228, 229. Review pg. 228--check out orange box. Then do page 229---only write the correct form of word.
Reading: Mon: page 478, 479 Really check out the vocabulary for understanding. You may need to use your dictionary.
page 480, 481 Read the Target skill---authors purpose, and pg. 481 Visual Arts.
As you begin the story, monitor (or pay attention) to text details. Ask yourself---Who are the main characters? What events are occurring? Where does the story take place?
You can Clarify something (or make clear) by reading slowly and rereading passages as necessary for greater understanding of characters and events.
Tues: read pg. 482-493 Read GENRE: realistic fiction
Look at the essential question Dont forget to read anything inside special boxes within story. Pg. 485: Voice. Pg. 492 Author's purpose.
