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

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.

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?
