Jason Reimund - English Language Arts/Writing Assignments
Friday, Sep. 13th:
Students will be completing a notetaking chart in class and independently. The "Painting Pictures with Words" chart will help the students identify figurative language found in the mentor texts.
Week of September 9th through 13th:
In addition to interactive reading sessions in class, we have begun writing in our journals. I have given the students writing prompts to use in generating ideas for writing; however, I am somewhat lenient on the journal content. It is important we get into the habit of writing.
Thu, Sep. 5:
Students were given five vocabulary words. By Monday, September 9th, they are expected to find the definitions for each of the words, as well as at least one synonym and one antonym.
In their journals, students started brainstorming lists. Tomorrow we will personalize our journals.
Wed, Sep. 4:
Students were given a questionaire, "My Writing Interview." The questionaire had seven questions related to writing. On the back, students were asked to draw a T-chart listing three books (the mentor books from class were recommended, as we have already discussed these) and authors on one side, and listing the reasons the authors had written them on the other side.
* Students have been given the opportunity to redo or add to the "My Writing Interview" assignment if they choose to do so. I have gone over the assignment with class, and offered to go over it individually with any student who needs additional clarification.
Wed, Aug. 28:
Writing - Introductions and expectations; writing prompt, Tell me something about yourself, and tell me at least one song or musical artist you really like (make sure it's school appropriate!). Please bring a composition notebook to be left in the classroom for writing. Also, by next week, try to bring in some stickers, magazine clippings, etc., to use to decorate the notebooks and turn them into personalized writing journals.
"Letter to Future Self" - students were asked to draft a letter to their 8th grade selves.
