Thursday, May 28th, 2020 – 7th grade work

Good morning 7th graders,

Happy Thursday! It was wonderful to see so many of you at sunglasses drop off yesterday. ❗️SINCERITY WARNING (embrace the cringe)❗️ I know the sun was out, but I honestly felt like I got more warmth and light just from seeing all of you, and the magnificent creativity and care you put into your work. I love working with all of you, and I’m so glad we have one more year together.

Okay, let’s get down to business – you have three items for you Literature / LA To Do List today:

  • Daily Journal (5 – 15 minutes)
  • Daily Reading (20 – 35 minutes)
  • Read chapter 9 of The Outsiders (30 – 40 minutes)

And away we go!

  1. Daily Journal (5 – 15 minutes)
    • Write on your own prompt or use the one below
    • Prompt: Yesterday, I asked you to think about your goals and define as many details as possible. Today, I want you to use those details and begin to create a realistic action plan to achieve your goals. How will you overcome the obstacles that stand in your way? What steps do you need to take to achieve your main goal? It’s okay if you don’t have all the answers, we’re here to help with that. What is important, if you truly want to achieve your goal, is thinking through the steps it takes to get there.
  2. Daily Reading (20 – 35 minutes)
    • You can read for the usual 15 – 30 minutes and then complete your reading log entry OR…
    • You could send me an email telling me what character you would be and why, if you could live in a book for a day.
  3. Read chapter 9 of The Outsiders (30 – 40 minutes)
    • Chapter 9 is due tomorrow – watch out for the rumble!

Reach out if you have questions, concerns, or need help – you’re not alone! And, no matter what, take some time to enjoy the weather and the people around you. Have a great day!

P.S. Good luck getting the song I posted out of your head!
