When You Come In
  • Sign in, please.
  • Grab your pink sheet and your free reading book.
  • Fill out your yellow Vocab Connoisseur papers, and give those to me know.
  • Organize your folder with the papers you are getting back today.
    • Put them in the right sections.
    • Put them in date order--oldest in front of section, newest in back.
  1. Get out a sheet of notebook paper.
  2. Put your name and the date at the top, and title it “Original Vocab Sentences.”
  3. Open your binder to your orange vocab section, so you can use your notes.
  4. Write a sentence of at least ten words using one of the following vocab words correctly:
    1. to lament
    2. formidable
    3. catalyst
    4. to pacify
    5. bellicose
    6. inconsequential
  5. Repeat, until you use each of the six words = six sentences total.
  6. When you finish, turn in your sentences to the drawer,  and play quizlet until I stop you.
  7. Do “speller” if spelling is an issue for you, since spelling WILL count on Friday’s test.

Reading Strategy

  1. Reading Actively--this is our mid-term performance test.
  2. Words we don’t know--box them, then write the red definitions on your text (annotating):
    1. Labyrinth maze
    2. Porcelain white marble-like stone
    3. somber serious; austere; stern
    4. ceased stopped
  3. When you finish, please turn it in to the drawer.
  4. Remain silent, since other people will be taking the test still.
  5. Fill out your pink sheet, and start reading your free reading book.
  6. You have the rest of the block, if needed, to do your best work, and to finish the test.  Take your time.
