Week at a glance ~ 1/7/12 to 1/11/12

Posted on January 6, 2013. Filed under: IRLA Class | Tags: |

Welcome back to a full week of school!  🙂

This week, our focus will be on gathering entries for our lit essay and selecting a topic for the essay.  We’ll be writing more “long” entries in our WNs this week and choosing the idea that will make the best essay.

Remember, a thoughtful literary essay will not just retell basic information from the book but it will address the universal themes of, and find meaning in, the human existence and conflict; that’s our goal!!!  🙂

There is no official reading response due right now, so this would be a good time to add to the independent reading section of your e-Portfolio.  If you are in the midst of choosing your next book, remember that our next reading unit will be informational nonfiction.  You can also take this time to update the class Independent Reading Spreadsheet.

We are working on Wordly Wise list 7 this week.  We will also be working on prepositions.  Be sure that you complete the first preposition activity before Tuesday:  What is a preposition?  


  • Check Infinite Campus for details regarding all IRLA assignments
  • Revisions from last week’s WN entry – checked on 1/7
  • Responses from The Mighty movie due in RN on 1/8 (There is no length requirement for this assignment, but you should write as much as it takes for you to answer each bullet in detail with support and evidence.)
  • Preposition lesson (assigned last week) due by 1/8
  • We are in the computer lab this Wednesday
  • Infinite Campus accounts should be created by 1/11.  If you need resources, check out this page on the district website:  http://www.west-windsor-plainsboro.k12.nj.us/parents___s_t_u_d_e_n_t_s/infinite_campus  If you are having trouble, come see me and I will try to direct you to your next steps.
  • Wordly Wise 7 is due on 1/16 (study and use the words daily!)
  • We have assembly on Tuesday during period 4, so we will have IRLA class during flex that day.
  • Flex schedule this week:
    • Monday – period 3
    • Tuesday – period 4
    • Wednesday – period 4
    • Thursday – period 5
    • Friday – period 8

For our The Mighty responses, do we have to answer the question at the bottom of the page? (It doesn’t have a bullet) Thanks!

Amanda, I just saw this comment now. That last part about a claim statement was not a bullet, but you could have written about it if you wanted to.

Where's The Comment Form?
