DAILY CLASSROOM ACTIVITIES:
Monday, Feb. 2: Today everyone who wrote a poem last week (your rendition of “The Pied Piper of Hamelin” or Beowulf) turned in their poems for a grade. Then we created a Venn diagram, comparing and contrasting the play Othello with narrative poetry. You can write your poem on your own at home, if you wish, but please turn it in by Thursday, as finals begin next week (and you’ll need that for your final). Also, you may create a 8.5 x 11 -inch Venn diagram, but please — as with the poem — turn it in by Thursday. The Venn diagrams were also graded assignments.
Tuesday, Feb. 3: Today we finished presenting our Venn diagrams to the whole class. Then we started a district-wide essay test. If you were absent for this test, you will be called to finish the test during the upcoming week.
Wednesday, Feb. 4: Today we did the STAR testing in the computer lab. If you were absent for this, Ms. Smith will make arrangements to re-test you at a time that’s convenient for her.
Thursday, Feb. 5: Today we finished the district-wide tests that we started on Tuesday. If you were absent for this test, you will be called to finish the test during the upcoming week.
