Continue reading chapters 1 - 4 and working on your reading log. Reminder your log is due on Monday, 1/29. As you are reading, if you have any questions about the book, write them down and we will discuss on Monday, 1/29.
Vocab check over Chapter 1 & 2 on Thursday, 1/25
If you missed either of the videos from the last two days, here are the links. The first link is from today's video.
Okay, we are finally back at school and started on the first 5 day week since before Christmas. We started The Boy on the Wooden Box (TBOTWB) today. There is going to be a slight change in the due date of your Reading Log for Chapters 1 - 4. After talking to Mrs. Burlock during planning, we decided that it would be best if you had your Reading Log completed and ready to turn-in by Monday, 1/29. We have some other activities planned that will be easier if you are finished reading. The reading check will still be on Wednesday, 1/31. However you will have a vocab check for chapters 1 & 2 on Thursday, 1/25. It would be helpful if you have finished chapters 1 & 2 by Wednesday, 1/24.
Remember the vocabulary is on quizlet. Here is the link for you:
I hope you are enjoying your snow day. I am attaching a link to the vocabulary for the first four chapters of The Boy on the Wooden Box. We will be working with this for the next few days.
Good afternoon Snow Watchers,
In class today, you viewed the video of the Michael Gruenbaum interview based on the book Somewhere There is Still a Sun. You were given a Venn diagram and asked to use that to organize your thoughts to write one - two paragraphs comparing and contrasting Gruenbaum's life in Terezin to Raja's life in Terezin. Your paper is due tomorrow. If you are someone whose handwriting is questionable, please type your paper. You can send it to me via email, and it can be printed here at school.
If you need to view the video of I Never Saw Another Butterfly, I have attached the link for it at the top of this post. The Gruenbaum Video was too big of a file to load, sorry.
Happy 3 day weekend.
Today, we finished or nearly finished the video of the play I Never Saw Another Butterfly . You should have taken notes that fit into one of the following 6 categories: Day-to-day life, family/friends, who survived, living conditions, types of resistance, and if Raja survived and how. Tuesday we will watch the interview of Michael Gruenbaum, so you can complete the Compare/Contrast assignment. If you missed some of the butterfly video or you want to watch it again to make sure you got everything, I have attached a link to the video up above.
Make sure you have your Boy on the Wooden Box book. We will start reading next week.
Have a good weekend.
Today, we started watching the video of the reader's theater "I Never Saw Another Butterfly". We will finish the video tomorrow and watch the interview of Michael Gruenbaum on Monday. Your final assignment will be a compare/contrast of Mr. Gruenbaum and Raja's life in Terezen concentration camp.
Reminder: If you haven't purchased your copy of The Boy on the Wooden Box , you need to do so soon. We will begin reading next week. Remember you can also use an electronic copy of the book if you prefer.
Today we had a speaker from the KSU Holocaust Museum present an introduction to our Holocaust unit. Don't forget that there will be a Vocab Quick Check tomorrow over the Holocaust vocabulary. Can't find your's it is attached at the top of this post.
Today, you worked with your table group and went from station to station discussing and writing your feelings and opinions about statements and pictures related to the Holocaust. You also received a sheet for your parents to sign to make them aware that we will be watching videos concerning the Holocaust. Please return your slip by Monday, 1/8. If you lost your slip, I am attaching the file for you to print. Also, on Monday we will have guest speakers from KSU. They will be delivering an introduction to the Holocaust.
Don't forget you need your Boy on the Wooden Box by Monday.
Have a good weekend.
Welcome back. In class today, you completed a Holocaust Vocabulary Scavenger Hunt. You had the words, and I posted the definitions. You had to find the correct definitions. We started going over the correct definitions in class, but did not finish in any class. I have attached the scavenger hunt key, so you can fill in and/or check any words we did not get to in class. There will be a quick vocabulary check tomorrow for warm-up.
Reading Inventory Tomorrow!! Bring a silent reading book to class.
