May 8-12

Monday:  We went through a slideshow on the author W.W. Jacobs.  We made predictions on what the story might be about based on the author’s background and the title.  We also worked on vocabulary for the short story we’ll read tomorrow.

Homework:  The Monkey’s Paw Pre-Reading Worksheet due tomorrow if not finished in class

Tuesday:  We took a spelling test and read The Monkey’s Paw together.  We had a little time to discuss the story at the end.

Wednesday:  Students spent the class period working through a 9 panel analysis of the short story “The Monkey’s Paw.”  Also, students received new a new spelling list for the week and a spelling practice worksheet.  Spelling homework will be due next Tuesday and there will also be a spelling quiz that same day.

Homework:  Spelling practice worksheet due tomorrow.

*Also, if any students are planning on ordering a t-shirt for the end of the year program – orders are due tomorrow, Thursday May 11!!!  T shirts are $11 and Gina has order forms in the office.

Thursday:  During class we watched a play version of “The Monkey’s Paw” and filled out a worksheet which compared and contrasted the play versus the short story.  We also had some time to discuss our thoughts on the play versus the short story.  This worksheet is homework and due tomorrow if not completed in class.  7th and 8th graders enjoy your field trip tomorrow!!
