Start reviewing your vocabulary words! You have a lot to review so start now!
BUT you should study, STUDY, STUDY!
If you are in the drama tonight, you can make up the exam on Sunday. Everyone else, be ready!
No homework is due today UNLESS you didn't do or finish your homework for Monday. This is your only chance to make it up!
1. Continue the vocabulary exercise we started in class. You should look up the meaning in a dictionary if you aren't 100% sure from the context clue what the word means. Do all TEN words.
2. Start reviewing your spelling words (you will be sad later this week if you don't).
Study study study!!!!!!
You have your spelling test AND your vocabulary test! You only have 6 NEW vocabulary words plus 4 from last week (provide, impact, affect, analyze). See the vocabulary section
6th graders: I hope you had a great trip! Make sure you reread "All Summer in a Day" and answered the questions in the margins. This was homework for YESTERDAY so hopefully you did it since I know you have a big test tomorrow.
1. Read the story "All Summer in a Day"
2. Make a list of the important things that happen in the story. This is called a "sequence chart" and just like the sequencing we've done with other stories you should list the most important things that happen in the order that they happen.
3. Answer the questions on page 161 of the packet. (You can skip number 5 for now because we will work on it in class). If you don't understand a question, you need to ask for help on here. Write your answers on a separate piece of paper that you can hand in on Sunday.
1. Finish vocabulary questions on pages 13 and 18 of this week's vocabulary packet. Look at the Quizlet flashcards and start studying!
2. Read "The School Play" and answer the questions that are in the margins (the side of the page).
1. Finish filling out the worksheet about the basic parts of a short story and the different parts of plot. Below is the handout you can read from if you lost it.
2. Finish vocabulary page 17. You can look up the words if you HAVE to, but try to use the context clues first. Start studying! You have lots of vocabulary this week!
1. Find 4 words that have number prefixes and write them on your spelling worksheet.
2. Do 3-10 on your vocabulary worksheet. Do context, structure, OR sound. Look up each word in the dictionary. Write the part of speech and definition that fits with how the word is used.
