If you’re an English teacher, librarian, or homeschooling mom looking for free handouts (including my snowflake-shaped poem assignment, rhyme table, and other teacher tools, I recommend visiting EnglishEmporium, which offers free graphic organizers, lesson ideas, vocabulary lists and more, in weekly blog posts).
Parents: Due to parent/teacher conferences on Tuesday Nov. 6 and Thursday, Nov. 8, there will be no vocabulary list this week. Watch for one next week though. Our next vocabulary test will be given on Tuesday, Nov. 20. Please mark your calendars, so you can encourage your seventh grader to study and prepare for this test. Thanks!
Students: We copied this week’s assignments into our agendas today, so parents can plan ahead with us. If you were absent today, please take a moment and copy your assignments from the agenda board. Thanks!
We were also given a new seating chart today. If you were absent, you’ll need to ask where you sit.
Students: it’s possible that Mrs. Webmaster took grades on the D.O.L. (grammar assignment) today. Please ask her if she did. If so, it’s possible to download a D.O.L. makeup sheet right here on Clipboards. Just click on the “Assignments” button at the top and download one of the D.O.L. makeup assignments. (Or you can just get one from the makeup work center at school.)
Mrs. Webmaster also handed back our graded VFW essays. We are keeping these in our colored file folders at the back of the classroom, and they’ll be useful for our parent/teacher conferences. So please ask Mrs. Webmaster to give yours to you. Then put it in your file folder. We also filled out a form that’s inside our file folders. You may need help filling out this “Writing Log.” Ask for help from a classmate or teacher. It’s important to have your Writing Log filled out when you come for parent/teacher conferences.
Some classes also got a chance to work on their letters to parents today. If you were absent and need to catch up on yours, you can find the entire letter under “Assignments,” right here on Clipboards. (Click the link.) Copy any part of the letter that you’re missing, so you’ll be ready for parent/teacher conferences.
