November 4-6

Monday: We read the short story “Harrison Bergeron” today.  We used that story to practice for what Wednesday’s exam will be like.  It will focus on the reading and writing strategies we’ve used so far in reader’s and writer’s workshop.  We will be moving on to Adventures of Huckleberry Finn in the 2nd quarter, so we need to wrap up workshops with an exam.  Students can study by reviewing their notes in both notebooks.  There will be an extra credit opportunity on the exam.

Tuesday: We completed a practice writing activity from the story we read yesterday.  Students used the grammar skills we’ve learned in writer’s workshop.  This will be very similar to what we will be doing on the test tomorrow.  Students were given a copy of the short story “Story of an Hour” that we will be using tomorrow.  They can read this before taking the test.

Wednesday: We spent the hour working on the exam.  Great job getting it finished!
