Today students read chapter 1 and completed with their group notes on the chapter as well as group roles assignments they were given. These roles will rotate from chapter to chapter. We will be reading one chapter a day until all roles have been completed by every student at least once. Groups will also start working on the assignments through Microsoft Office Classroom (a new free addition added to their Office365 accounts) next week. Notes, vocabulary, and comprehension questions will be done online Chapter 3-24 starting next week.
Students completed reading chapter 1 and 2 in groups, as well as their roles and notes. Students moved on to completing the comprehension questions in complete sentence and citing the page number for each chapter. These are the same format of comprehension questions that will be asked for the rest of the book and will be available for them to answer through Office Classroom starting next week.
Students are to write each word 3 times each, define the word using the dictionary definition, paraphrase the word, and create a sentence that uses the word correctly (underlining/highlighting the word). There are a lot of word here, and so this assignment will not be due until Monday of next week. Class time both today and tomorrow will be given, but that is all. After that, it will be completed at home. Dictionaries will be allowed to be checked out to complete if needed.
