Friday, September 28th

Posted on September 28, 2012. Filed under: IRLA Class | Tags: , , |

Happy Friday, everyone!

Today, we’ll start class by taking our grammar quiz.  When you finish the quiz, come back to this blog post and read the rest of the directions below.

After the grammar quiz, please keep this tab (with the blog post) open, and create a new tab to open your Google accounts. Then, open your portfolios (in “Sites”).

(Periods 3 & 4, we’ll need to add the remaining pages that you need; periods 5 & 8, you can work on adding to your portfolio if you are waiting for others to finish the quiz.)

NOTE:  By October 5th, everyone MUST complete a journal entry in the portfolio about how you view yourself as an independent reader at this point in the year.  Include your strengths and your weaknesses, and what you would like to improve upon the most You may or may not have class time to complete this activity, so you will need to do it at home OR arrange for a time to use a computer during flex or recess.  See Infinite Campus for assignment details.

Once we are all finished with the quiz, today we will learn how to:

  • Create a new document in Google
  • Share the document
  • Add a link to the document in our portfolios

To continue gathering personal narrative entries, we are going to respond (in a Google document) to the question:  “If  not me, then who?” 

  1. Think deeply about what this question means to you.
  2. Then, think of a time when you stood up for someone or something, someone stood up for you, or you wished that someone would have stood up for someone else.
  3. Tell that story.  (Remember to choose and use one of the pre-writing strategies we reviewed in class yesterday.)

Have a great weekend!  🙂

This does not have any thing to do with this topic but are we going to do poetry this year?

Yes, ma’am!
We have a big poerty unit at the end of the year, but I hope to incorporate other poetry readings and activities throughout the year. Do you have any favorite poets or poems?

I do not have a specific poet or poem that I like ,but do you?

So many! Pablo Neruda, Langston Hughes, Emily Dickinson…those are the first three who came to mind. 🙂

I have heard of Emily Dickinson but not the other poets you mentioned.

Hi Mrs. Morris!
I tried to open the link to if not me then who and the October 5th link. I couldnt open either of them so please let me know what I should do. And if i do have to start all over then please let me know how to do it. Thanks!

Ritika, I went into your portfolio and fixed the link to “If not me, then who?” for you. The journal entry was there as well – remember, to edit that entry, you will need to click the “pencil” icon at the top of the page, and don’t forget to click “save” when you are finished.

Try it again, and if you still have trouble, be sure to come see me about it tomorrow in school. Good luck!

Ms. Morris,
I heard the book fair is next week. When are we going? Also, I can’t think of any other ideas for my SMART goal. Do you have any suggestions or comments?

Hi Pranavi,
We are going to the book fair on Thursday. Come see me on Monday to go over your SMART goal. 🙂
