Aloha Friday!


Friday Assignment Turn-In  Aloha Friday! Let's begin today by turning in all of your Language Arts assignments from the week. If you haven't already, please make sure you have completed and 'turned in' the assignments Learning to Read Story and Context Clues Practice. If these assignments have not been completed, please make sure you do so ASAP. Your grade in this class depends on it. 

Context Clues Quiz  Now I would like you to show me what you know so far about context clues by taking the online quiz here. I will read the questions and answers aloud and guide you through the quiz.

Identifying Character Traits  Now that we've read the short story "Eleven" several times it's time to reflect on what you've learned about its main characters: Rachel and Mrs. Price. Who are they as people? What character traits do they reveal through their words, actions, and feelings? Using your character trait list form earlier in the week (you can still find a link here), identify several different traits you would associate with each character. You can post your trait ideas on your class's Padlet wall: Period 3Period 5Period 6.

Newsela Article: "Pokemon Go" points to a world of augmented reality  As many of you know the new game "Pokemon Go" is taking the world by storm. Watch the brief video below and then head over to your Language Arts Google Classroom and find the link to the Newsela article about this phenomenon. Click the link to the Newsela article. Make sure the article is set to 900L (5th Grade reading level). Read the article carefully. Take the 4 question quiz. Make sure to have this assignment completed by next Friday, September 2.
