Students will be working in their red notebooks (their response journals) you can see their bell ringer responses and important vocabulary words in this notebook. Students must keep this notebook in their backpacks all the time, as they will need it for my class everyday. This will also help for students to review key vocabulary words at home.
We will also be starting our “Timeline about Me” projects. Students will need to create a timeline about their personal lives and have the events of their choice put in chronological order.
Timeline about Me:
Periods 1,2,4 Due Monday 8/27
Periods 5,7,8 Due Tuesday 8/28
ALL IEP and ESOL accommodations will be provided daily.
When a student is absent, it is their responsibility to check the absent files in class and copy notes from a peer. Students will have the number of days absent to complete missing work. If you need any assignments emailed, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
