Folklore Journal Lesson Plans

Any time you’ve been gone, you need to ask Mrs. Webmaster if she took grades on the D.O.L. assignments. If so, go get a D.O.L. make-up sheet from the make-up work center, take it home, follow the directions, and turn it in. Remember that Mrs. Webmaster’s hand is her in-box; NEVER leave make-up work on her desk.

Monday, April 22: Please take the time to write assignments in your agenda. We edited each other’s folk tales today. If you were gone for this, ask a friend to edit your story for you. Remember that you must have at least ten proofreading symbols. Extra copies of the new vocabulary list are in the Monday box. Definitions are on the Vocabulary page, right here on clipboards.

Tuesday, April 23: Today we began revising our folk tales. Notice that they are due on Thursday, so try to keep up with our schedule. Extra copies of the vocabulary list are in the Monday box. Definitions are on the Vocabulary page, right here on clipboards.

Wednesday, April 24:   Today Mrs. Webmaster was helping out in the computer lab, while other students took the state tests. Students who normally had language arts with Mrs. Webmaster went to other teachers’ classrooms for study hall. Many students used this time to finish revising their folk tales.

Thursday, April 25:   Today we swapped folk tales to read and enter in our folklore journals. Since you were absent for this, just go to and look for the BMS Raiders group. Then look through the stories there. Choose one to read and enter in your folklore journal. We finished defining this week’s vocabulary list as well. Definitions are on the Vocabulary page, right here on clipboards.

Friday, April 26:  Today we scored our folk tales using the six traits as our scoring rubric. If you set an appointment to come in at lunch, you will also get a chance to score your story for the six traits.
