Students: it’s possible that Mrs. Sparhawk took grades on the D.O.L. (grammar assignment) today. Please ask her if she did. If so, it’s now possible to download a D.O.L. make-up sheet right here on Clipboards. Just click on the “Assignments” button at the top and download one of the D.O.L. make-up assignments. (Or you can just get one from the make-up work center at school.)
Parents: this Friday we’ll be tested over the words and definitions on our Word Cluster Graphic Organizer. Mrs. Sparhawk handed these graded graphic organizers back to the students on Tuesday last week, so students should have these with them, to bring home and study.
Today students used the “Folklore Thesis Statement Graphic Organizer“, to guide them in creating an outline for their folklore essay. Mrs. Sparhawk also handed out this sample outline, so kids would know what an outline should look like. This is just a guide. They don’t have to follow this outline exactly, but it should help them understand what the teacher would like their outline to look like, including Roman numerals, capital letters, and the use of our folklore vocabulary words (like plot, theme, setting, etc.).
