Monday – we will be outside!

Tuesday and Wednesday will be devoted to finishing up the essays and working on the portfolios in the computer lab.  Your clean, final draft of the personal essay is due by the end of the period on Wednesday.  (Yay!)

For help with the portfolios and to prepare for the presentation, visit this blog post.

Thursday and Friday we will resume GRAMMAR work with verbs, and we will begin our new READING unit on Character Study and Literary Essay.

By Monday, November 19th, you will need to complete 3 BrainPops (and submit your quiz results to my spreadsheet).  They are:  Verb Tenses, Verbs and Their Objects, and Subject-Verb Agreement.  Remember to log in to your Google account and then into BrainPop through the Google App under the “More” option.


  • The “Huri-Can” food drive has been extended – bring your non-perishable food items to Ms. Baner’s room.
  • The marking period ends on Wednesday, November 14h.
  • All outstanding work must be submitted by the 14th to receive credit for Marking Period 1 – this includes “extra” or “make up” reading response work.
  • WW4 is due on 11/21
  • BrainPop quizzes are due on 11/19
  • Don’t forget to add your completed independent reading titles to the Independent Reading Spreadsheet Form.
  • The Flex rotation this week will be:
    • Monday – Period 4 (outside for IRLA and science)
    • Tuesday – Period 3
    • Wednesday – team Flex in concourse (return to period 3 if time remains)
    • Thursday – Period 5
    • Friday – Period 8

Due dates and grading…

Posted on November 3, 2012. Filed under: General Information | Tags: , |

Hey Everyone!

For those of you wondering about the due dates for your existing assignments, hopefully this information will help clear things up.  🙂

1)  Be prepared to turn in your study guide and proof of study for Wordly Wise 3.  Also, we will take the WW3 test when you come back.  (This test was scheduled for last Wednesday.  We’ll give out list #4 after, but its due date is to be announced (TBA).

2)  IRR5 is also due when you come back — we will, however, assess it with consideration given to the storm and power outages (power is STILL out in my house as I type this).

3)  The optional, extra credit assignment for Wordly Wise will be accepted when we get back to school.  (You may submit it via email ahead of time, if you like.)

4)  The due date for the final draft of the personal essay will be extended.  We’ll try to get in in by the marking period.  Be ready to work on it in class!

See you soon!

~Ms. Morris 🙂

Schools closed through Friday, October 2nd

Posted on November 1, 2012. Filed under: General Information | Tags: , |

Hey everyone,
If you are looking for information about school closings and changes in the school calendar, go to this link on the main WWP page:  http://www.ww-p.org/cms/One.aspx?portalId=3592907&pageId=17081261 

What are you all doing to keep busy while we wait to get the power back?  How many books have you read?  Are you using your phones?  Staying with family and friends?  (I’ve been getting online sporadically via my phone and reading by flashlight at night!  I finished Catching Fire the other day, but Mockingjay is in the classroom…I can’t wait to get back to school so I can start it!)

See you soon!  🙂
