3/8/2023 MON., MAR. 6, 2023

1. Today we started a multi-part assignment called "Real Estate Adjectives".

2. Due Wednesday: Vocabulary workbook pages 126-129.

    Due Friday:  Vocabulary workbook pages 130-135.

    Test on Unit 9 A&B on Wednesday, March 15.

3. A note of concern: When I announced the assignment schedule---which was already on the board when the students walked in the classroom---most students just sat there, and very few students took out their "planners" to write down the information.  They did so when I said that they needed to write it down, but they should have been taking out their planners without my prompting.  Too often this year, the sixth graders have not done homework and then tried to "blame the homework board" in their homeroom.

3/2/2023 WED., MAR. 1, 2023

1. Because of laptop problems at the end of last week, I did not have convenient access to this site again until today.

2. Today we corrected homework pages in the Vocabulary workbook.  I did not assign other homework for tonight.

2/23/2023 WED., FEB. 22, 2023

1.  We corrected the Unit 8A Vocabulary workbook pages (112-117).

2.  The quiz for this list of words will be on Friday, February 24.

2/22/2023 THURS., FEB. 16, 2023

After quickly reviewing pages 110 and 111 in the Vocabulary workbook, the students took the quiz on words from Unit 7.

NEXT WEEK:  Vocabulary pages 112-117 due Wednesday, Feb. 22.  Quiz on Unit 8A on Friday, February 24.

The was time to start the homework after finishing the quiz.  Also, sixth graders have time to work on assignments in their Thursday quiet study hall.  (Add Thursday night at home?  Maybe.)  So, the assignment will not "spoil" the four-day weekend if a student manages their time wisely.

The students had double Science today.  See MONDAY for important news.

We followed up on yesterday's word root notes (port---to cary), which included mention of the prefixes im/in (import) and ex (export).  The students had practice today with other words that share those prefixes in common.

We also practiced with a set of capitalization rules.  There is a homework page, which the students had time to start in class.

3.  We did a "Word Root Match" for nine words based on "port" (to carry) and their definitions.

4.  We reviewed the answers to the skill page from Monday "Games People Play", which focuses on figures of speech and their meanings ("pull my leg", "once in a blue moon", and many others.  We will finish that review on Thursday.
