At Home Assignments

Hello Everyone! This is where your weekly assignments will be posted. We will be following a routine for our work that will be the same or close to the same every week. If you have any concerns or questions at all, please email me and I will get back to you as fast as I can! All of your assignments will be submitted through your Google Classroom, even the work you do in your workbook. If you did not take home your workbook, it can be picked up in the school office. The school office will be open on Thursdays for 10-2 until further notice.
You should all be familiar with our Google Classroom, but just in case here are your join codes again:
Block One = 6qppree
Block Two = wmasnv7
Block Three = tjn6sfq
I hope you are enjoying your time at home. This is a little bit weird for all of us, but we will face any new challenges together. Remember I am just an email away. I miss you all already!!! 


As you are working on your Edmentum assignment, please remember that you need to be logged in to the Reading session for 30 minutes. Your score will be based on the time spent "actively learning" in the program. 
IF you get locked out of a test in the program, you must go back and redo the lesson. The program will then let you retake the test for that skill.

Language arts is a combination of reading, writing, and grammar. In addition to our regular journaling, we will have writing assignments about once a month. Reading stories will come from the anthology Elements of Literature.  In addition we will be reading two novels this year. Reading skills and grammar lessons, including parts of speech and mechanics, will be inter-dispersed with the reading and writing lessons.

We have started working on argument writing. The end product will be a 5 paragraph essay. The students have chosen a topic from their 742's. Choices include gum chewing at school, limited screen time for electronics, blizzard bags (work on snow days), and the value of field trips to education.
Introductory paragraphs will need a hook (lesson in google classroom), a claim, and a thesis statement. 
3 body paragraphs each with a reason and a fact to support that reason
A closing paragraph with a reworded thesis and a call to action

Please save a shoe box for the Literacy Fair projects. We will be needing them in the next week or so.
