This is the PowerPoint that goes through the 12-sentence paragraph sentence by sentence. Use it for the analytical paragraph about summer homework.
We started The Painted Drum this week. The introductory PowerPoint with the notes on the author and on the literary elements and the reading guide are both posted here.
Wednesday's multiple choice quiz will cover the readings, video clips, and vocabulary from the summer homework packet. Thursday's essay will cover the readings and video clips from the packet.
It's hard to believe that school starts on Monday, so I hope you are enjoying your last days of summer vacation! Please remember that all parts of the personal narrative and the vocabulary sheets are due on Monday. We'll spend Tuesday talking about summer homework assignments, and on Wednesday and Thursday we will do some assessments of learning. If you have questions, let me know on Monday.
