STUDY FOR YOUR FINAL!!!
THE STUDY GUIDE IS ATTACHED TO YESTERDAY'S POST, IF YOU LEFT YOUR AT SCHOOL.
Tomorrow morning at 8:15 is the only study session we will be able to have before the final on Friday because we have performing arts tomorrow.
If you did not turn in your letter today, it is due first thing tomorrow morning during homeroom.
Also, if you want to check your answers on the study guide, I am attaching a pdf of the key. Trust me study this study guide IT WILL HELP you with the final.
Today, we were in the computer lab typing your letters to either Rado or Thom. We are scheduled in the computer lab again tomorrow. If you typed your letter on office 365 and want to work on it at home tonight, that is perfectly fine. I am hoping that we will have some of the class time on Wednesday for review. However, I am scheduling an 8:15 review session for the final on Thursday, 5/17. We will meet in my room to go over the study guide and answer any other questions you might have. You can print this post for your pass. Also, my room will be open for Reading lab tomorrow morning at 8:15 if you want to come into type or work on your study guide.
Today you worked on the rough draft of your letter to either Rado or Thom. Several students even started typing today. Tomorrow you need to come to class with your rough draft completed as we will be in the computer lab for you to type the final draft. As I have stated in class, I am hoping that we can finish typing tomorrow, so we can have review on Wednesday since we have performing arts on Thursday and won't be able to review before the final on Friday. Work on your study guide -- IT WILL HELP YOU prepare for the final.
HW: Finish Rough Draft if not finished in class
It was a busy Friday in Reading. Many of you worked on your character study, while those who were finished with that began their rough draft for the letter to Thom or Rado. Remember your character study is due on Monday, May 14.
Timeline for the Rest of the Year
Due to time constraints some due dates have had to be changed. Your character study for Chapters 15 -21 is due on Monday, 5/14. You will have more time in class tomorrow to work on this, but if you don't finish in class tomorrow, you may need to take your work home to work on during the weekend. I have attached a copy of the character study in case you have lost yours or left it at school.
There have been some changes made to due dates due to a tightening of the schedule, so today was the last day for vocabulary. It will be worth 60 points instead of the original 100. I am attaching all of the assignments encase you need to catch-up or finish some. I will give you the new timeline tomorrow in class.
Today we completed day 2 of the final vocabulary assignment. You had your journals returned and we continued working on chapters 15 - 21. Don't forget the character study is due on May 17. I have attached the vocab assignment from today in case you need to finish yours or if you were absent.
Today we started on the final of our vocabulary work for the year. We will complete one installment per day until the end of the week. The entire set is worth 100 points.

The SLICE sheet is due tomorrow if you didn't finish in class. I have attached a PDF of the article at the bottom of this post.
