Mandatory Lessons - Week of 4/27/2020

  • Hi, everyone! Here is what's on our agenda for this week (4/27/2020).

    • Period 3 - ELA: Before you read, please complete the Figurative Language Warm-Ups worksheet. Explain the figurative meaning of each idiom/ adage and then use it in your own sentence. If you complete 4 per day, you will finish the worksheet by Friday. Then, refer to CommonLit for your next story. There are 8 assigned stories; so long as you read one per week, you will be on track to complete your work by the end of the school year (6/12/2020). If you want to read more than one, go ahead! I will grade it and leave comments for you as you complete it. As you read, practice making annotations by selecting/ highlighting parts of the text and typing a note for yourself.

      Spend Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday reading and annotating. On Thursday, answer the assessment questions. On Friday, respond to the discussion. HAPPY READING!

    • Periods 4, 5/6, 8, 9 - Math: This week, we will complete our daily warm-up with 5-A-Day Math Review: Week 32. Then, we will complete a lesson called "Subtracting Integers." Picture the Integer Number Line in our classroom. It's on the right side of the white board and it runs up and down with 0 in the middle.

      REMEMBER: When you subtract two NEGATIVE integers, add the numbers and keep the symbol. They answer will be a LARGER NEGATIVE NUMBER than the two with which you started. For example -2 + -3 = -5. I added 2 + 3 and kept the negative sign. Subtracting negatives really means you are just adding the numbers and keeping the negative sign.

      You can complete the worksheet all at once, or, if you'd like to break up the work evenly each day, follow this schedule for completion:
      #s1-4: Monday
      #s 5-9: Tuesday
      #s 10-13: Wednesday
      #s 14-16: Thursday
      #s 17-20: Friday

    The worksheet attachments can be found both here and on Google classroom.
