Wednesday, May 27th, 2020 – 7th grade work

Good morning 7th graders,


Sunglasses drop off today at the flagpole from 1-2pm. Please follow emailed instructions and bring Unbound money if you can. I can’t wait to see you and the personalized glasses you have created!

Okay, now for the nitty gritty of the day – you have four items for your Literature / LA /being a 7th grader To Do List:

  • Chapter 8 Questions for The Outsiders (9 minutes)
  • Daily Journal (5 – 15 minutes)
  • Daily Reading (20 -35 minutes)
  • Drop off fabulous sunglasses

Let’s do this!

  1. Chapter 8 Questions for The Outsiders (9 minutes)
    • Complete the assignment “Chapter 8 Questions for The Outsiders” on Teams
      • Choose TWO of the six questions
      • Answer them thoughtfully using complete sentences and text evidence (quotes).
      • Include the original question in your response
    • Make sure to attach your work before hitting the submit button on Teams
    • Remember to hit the submit button!
    • Contact me if you have any questions!
  2. Daily Journal (5 – 15 minutes)
    • Write on your own prompt or use the one below
    • Prompt: Last week I asked you about your goals for next year.  Knowing what you want is important, it gives you direction. Equally important is knowing when you have achieved your goal. Today I want you to flesh out your goal – what exactly do you want to do? How will you know when you are successful? What will it look/feel like? How long do you think it will take? What obstacles will you need to overcome? The more questions you answer with specific and realistic responses, the more likely you are to succeed!
  3. Daily Reading (20 -35 minutes)
    • Read for 15 – 30 minutes*
    • Complete your journal entry with effort and thought
    • Have fun!
  4. Drop off fabulous sunglasses
    • This one is pretty self explanatory
    • Review the directions I emailed to you and your parents
    • If your glasses don’t meet the standard, I will hand you fresh tagboard to start again (hopefully, no one will need this!)

I’m so excited to see all of you this afternoon! Have a great morning, ask questions if you need help, and I’ll see you later!

*If you send me an email with the title of the best thing you have ever read (book, poem, article, etc.), you can skip your reading assignment for today. Emails need to be received by me before 6pm today (because you should really, REALLY be done working well before that).
