Interested in some extra credit?

Happy World Freerice Week!

Join the FreeRice group for your class and play either the English Vocabulary or English Grammar games and you can earn extra credit points.  Not only will you make a huge impact in the fight against world hunger, you will learn vocabulary and grammar that will help you as well.  "After you have played Freerice for a while, you may notice a strange phenomenon. Words that you have never consciously used before will begin to pop into your head while you are speaking or writing." This is what we call a win/win situation!  Everyone benefits!

You can earn 5 extra credit points for every 10,000 grains you donate.
A penny for your thoughts - - Active Reading Journals
We started our new Active Reading Journals today.  They will have a pink cover in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month.  Be sure to keep yours handy whenever you spend time reading your Accelerated Reader book.  Don't forget to make notes and ask questions to make your reading practice more effective.
  • Predict - What do you think will happen next?  How will this story end?  Will the main character succeed or fail?
  • Question - Ask questions as if you were speaking to the author.  Ask them why a character does what they do or why they are they way they are?
  • Clarify - Make brief notes to help you understand what's happening.
  • Evaluate - Do you agree with what's happening?  Would you do what the character is doing?  Do you think the author is doing a good job telling their story?
  • Connect - Compare the plot, the setting, and the characters to things that have happened to you or places you've been or people you've known.  What's similar to your experience?  What isn't?
