    We are beginning If Stones Could Speak this week! I won't sugarcoat it; this unit will be hard. If your student struggled with Hatchet, they will most likely struggle with this one as we dive into the scientific world of Archeology and exploring the civilizations of the Paleolithic Era. As always, we will work to ensure that students get the help they need, but while we complete this unit, I strongly encourage students and families to watch archeology documentaries like those found on National Geographic Disney+. Not only will it expose your student to the world of archeology, but it will open up a dialogue about how school is going and help you better understand what students are talking about. This unit is hard and is designed to challenge students, please remind them how important it is to pay attention so they do not fall behind or develop gaps in their learning.

    Please check your student's class supplies! It is recommended that they replace any journals or folders that are damaged, especially those missing covers. Please also remind them that during this week is also a great time to ask for a new purple journal if theirs is falling apart. My purple journal supply is very limited, so it is my discretion to replace it or not. Remember these journals are taken for a grade at the end of every unit so it is important to keep them in good shape.

    • Monday January 29: We will begin lesson 41 of Steve Jobs: Presenting our speeches. This is the final assignment of the Steve Jobs Unit. All materials for this week's assignments are due today unless the student did not get to present their speech today.
    • Tuesday January 30: We will finish lesson 41 of Steve Jobs: Presenting our speeches. This is the final assignment of the Steve Jobs Unit. All Steve Jobs assignments are due today!
    • Wednesday January 31: We will set up our supplies for our next unit- If Stones Could Speak- today.

    • Thursday January 25: We will complete lesson 1 of If Stones Could Speak: Unit Introduction and Gallery Walk.
    • Friday January 26: We will complete lesson 2 of If Stones Could Speak: Analyzing the Language of Travel.

Extension task research and speech prep work (brainstorm and rough draft), final draft of the speech, and the oral/visual presentation of their speech as well.

    • Monday January 22: We will complete lesson 37 of Steve Jobs: Planning a speech. We will use a graphic organizer to organize our research from last week into a clear outline in our brainstorm packet. If they do not finish the paper in class, it is homework.

      Welcome back from Christmas Break! I hope everyone had as wonderful a time as I did on break! This week we will start Thursday off by taking the day to make up or redo a test we took before the break that everyone did poorly on. We will then begin our culminating writing task for Steve Jobs unit on Friday. There is one grade this week. The cold read Pt. 1 and Pt. 2 will be counted as one grade.

    • The following week, we will continue to work on our culminating writing task and our final draft (typed and submitted through Canvas) is due Friday January 12th. There are two grades this week. The first is the combined grade of their brainstorm paper and their rough draft with edits and revisions. The second grade is their final draft and is based on the LDOE 19-point Nonfiction Writing Rubric.

    • Wednesday January 10: We will complete lesson 34 of Steve Jobs: Revise your essay.  If they do not finish revising in class, it is homework. They should take this time to reorganize things into the proper paragraphs. If their essay is extra messy, they should take today to rewrite it on a fresh sheet of paper with the corrections they made.

    • Thursday January 11: We will complete lesson 35 of Steve Jobs: Edit and Publish Final Draft. Their rough draft should have red pen marks where they checked spelling, grammar, punctuation, word choice, and more. After today, they have until 3pm tomorrow to turn in their brainstorm packet and rough drafts stapled together, and their final draft should be submitted on Canvas.

      Friday January 12: We will complete lesson 36 of Steve Jobs: Begin research for Extension Task. They will be given a packet to chart their research. Students are strongly encouraged to continue their research over the weekend.

    • November 27- December 1
      Welcome back from Thanksgiving Break! I hope everyone had as wonderful a time as I did on break! (sleeping, spending time in the woods, and surrounded by family) With many people still traveling back from break, this week is going to slowly edge back into our lessons. We will start Monday picking up where we left off learning about narrative writing and encouraging students to find their creative side. We will review for a cold read test, take that test, and then pick up with our lessons on Friday. There are TWO grades this week. The cold read Pt. 1 and Pt. 2 will be counted as one grade, and on Friday students' final product for their narrative writing assignment is due for a grade as well.

    • Monday November 27: We will continue to work on our narratives that we started Friday before the break. The goal of today's lesson is to add detail.

      Tuesday November 28: We will review concepts that we learned the week before break- main idea, important details, summarizing and prepare students for the cold read test tomorrow. We will also be doing some housekeeping with our class supplies and making sure that everyone's things are in order. (Sometimes after a long break, things go missing or get damaged so we will take care of those issues today.) 

      Wednesday November 29: We will complete lesson 16 of Steve Jobs: Cold Read Test Pt. 1 (multiple choice).

      Thursday November 30: We will complete lesson 17 of Steve Jobs: Cold Read Test Pt. 2 (writing).  

      Friday December 1: We will complete lesson 18 of Steve Jobs: Summarizing "Mindset for Achievement."

     Grades this Week:

    1. Cold Read Pt. 1 and 2

    2. Narrative Writing Assignment (instruction completed Monday but students have until Friday to fine tune it)

    Extra Credit this Week: After students submit their final draft for their narrative,  they may critique one of their classmate's stories: 3 things they liked, 2 things that they think should be improved, and one lingering question about the essay.

    Housekeeping Note: After grading the Hatchet Cold Read Tests, I am not happy with the grades students made and I feel that the bad grades are at least in part my fault because of the amount of time that passed between lessons and taking the test without a study guide or test review day. For this reason, I am deleting this grade from jCampus.

      We have a short week! DO NOT FORGET TO DO YOUR HOMEWORK THIS WEEK!

      • Midweek Update: Due to the Veteran's Day program running long, I moved the Wednesday lesson to Thursday and gave students the day to work on their homework quiz, any unfinished assignments for my class, and if they finished early they had an opportunity to work on assignments for another class, go to the library, work on extra credit book reports, and read AR books.

      Monday November 6: We will complete lesson 5 for Steve Jobs: Supporting claims with evidence and reasoning. Students need to complete any parts of their class assignment (Pg. 28-30 in Purple Journal) that was not done in class for homework. We will be checking their work first thing tomorrow morning.

      The end is near! This is the LAST week that we will work on Hatchet! Next Monday we will begin a new unit entitled "Steve Jobs." I have been asked by some parents what book we will be reading so you can order it ahead of time to have a copy for your house. This unit does not have a book, it is an anthology (a collection of short stories) and students will be given their own individual copies of the text to travel back and forth with. We STRONGLY ENCOURAGE parents to buy a folder with pockets and brads for this unit so students can safely store the anthology without losing pages.

      Monday October 23: We will do Lesson 36 of our Hatchet Unit. We will learn how to build a bibliography page to cite our research sources. With leftover time, students will finalize their presentations for tomorrow.

    •  

      Tuesday October 24: We will begin our PowerPoint presentations for our real-life survival situations.

    •  

      Wednesday October 25: We will finish our PowerPoint presentations today and turn in all documents associated with it..

      Thursday October 26: We will finish part 1 of our Cold Read Test today.  

      Friday October 27: We will finish part 2 of our Cold Read Test today.

    Grades due this week:

    • Extention Task Packet (1 grade)

    • Cold Read Grade (Pt.1 &2 combined)

      This happens to be one of my favorite weeks in the Hatchet Unit! I hope you love it as much as I do! This week we are creating our extension task projects! Students will choose a real story about a person or group of people who had to survive in the wilds. They will become experts on their person/group and create a presentation to teach the class about it, emphasizing what characteristics made that person/group succeed in being rescued. Everything that we do this week will build their knowledge of events and prepare them for presentation next week. This project will have 3 different grades for the 2nd 9-Weeks: Data collection grade (packet), Multimedia PowerPoint Grade, and their Oral Presentation Grade.

      Monday October 9: We will do Lesson 32 of our Hatchet Unit. We will read "Your Story: Are You a Survivor?" and students will finalize their choice of which person or group they will research. With any leftover time, students will use their laptops to begin researching their events.

      Tuesday October 10: We will do Lesson 33 of our Hatchet Unit. Today is all about research! Students will research their topic and collect all the information they can about their subject and record it on their packet. Near the end of class, partners will get together and meet about what they found.

      Wednesday October 11: We will do Lesson 34 of our Hatchet Unit. Today we will talk about credible sources. How to identify credible sources. Students will evaluate the credibility of the sites they have already researched and continue to conduct more research.

      Thursday October 12: Since today is a half day, I will only see two of my classes. The two classes that I see will continue their research.

      Friday October 13: We will do Lesson 35 of our Hatchet Unit. Today we will look at what a multimedia presentation looks like (setting the expectation). We will talk about the rubric and how they will be graded. Students will have the opportunity to add other things that they would like to be graded on as well (like including facts about their life before the event). Students will work in their partner groups to create a multimedia presentation to teach the class next week. Students will turn in their packets for review/grade this weekend so I can catch any errors or flawed knowledge before they get too far into their powerpoint creation.

      Optional Homework: If students would like to get together over the weekend to continue their research and build their presentation together, I strongly encourage them to do so! I would hate for anyone to feel embarrassed next week when they present their research to the class. If they feel confident in how their presentation looks, then they do not need to do this homework.

    We love a good half week! 😄

    Monday October 2: We will do Lesson 25 of our Hatchet Unit and complete the CWT Rough Draft Packet.

    Tuesday October 3: We will do Lesson 26 of our Hatchet Unit and begin our rough draft essay.

    Wednesday October 4: We will do Lesson 27 of our Hatchet Unit and finish our rough draft essay.

    Thursday-Monday: Mrs. Bravo will grade everything listed below in red. Students will actively kick back and enjoy their break knowing that there is NO HOMEWORK for ELA!

    Assignments Due Wednesday:

    • Purple Journal Hatchet Section Pg. 64-95
    • Student Spiral Notebooks Section 1 Pt.1 and all of Section 2
    • All extra credit assignments
    • Rough Draft Essay + completed CWT Packet email submissions are NOT accepted! This assignment must be handwritten 
    • Magical Item Narrative Essay
    • Any tests/quizzes that have not already been locked

    Due to the volume of assignments being turned in this week, expect delays to email responses! The only activity that we are actively working on this week is the “CWT rough draft + packet.” All other grades should have been completed already. All grades are final. Students have had multiple extra credit opportunities leading up to this moment, and if they did not take advantage of those opportunities when they had the chance then I hope they learn from this and choose to do them the next time the opportunity is offered. Due to the volume of assignments, if your student turns in their papers late (next Tuesday 10/10 or beyond) not only will the normal process of subtracting letter grades for late work be followed, but they will be graded if and when I have time. There are no excuses for late grades. These assignments and due dates have been posted and talked about in and around the classroom for 3 weeks now.

  • Whoopsie-doodles!

    You might have noticed that I deleted your grade for the Ch. 5-10 Hatchet Test. This is because I noticed I made a mistake while marking which answers were correct. Luckily, because the test is online, it was a fairly simple fix. I would just like to apologize for the mistake and the time it is taking to repost the grade. Rest assured, when I repost the grade on Student Progress Center, it will reflect the TRUE grade. 😄

  • September 25- September 29

     

    Monday September 25: We will complete Lesson 22 in the Hatchet Unit. 

    Tuesday September 26: We will complete Lesson 23 in the Hatchet Unit. 

    Wednesday September 27: I will be absent today; out of town in Lafayette with our National Beta Leadership Officers for a competition. Students will complete Section 8 Quiz in the Hatchet Unit. Once students are done, they will begin work on their next narrative essay, "In a small coastal town, there's a legendary lighthouse that's rumored to grant a single wish to anyone who can reach its top on their 12th birthday. You must craft a story about a character on the eve of their 12th birthday, setting out on a quest to reach the lighthouse in the middle of a thunderstorm. The wish can be as imaginative as your creativity allows. Explore the journey, obstacles, and the ultimate realization of your character's wish, be it magical, heartfelt, or unexpected." Your narrative must include 1. A main character 2. A thunderstorm 3. At least 2 challenges or obstacles standing in your character's way of getting to the lighthouse 4. Dialogue/your character thinking to themselves (Use Brian's thoughts as your example) 5. At least 2 pages in length

    Thursday September 28: I will be absent today; out of town in Lafayette with our National Beta Leadership Officers for a competition. Students will complete Chapter 11- Epilogue Hatchet Test. When they are done, they will continue to work on their narrative essay from yesterday.

    Friday September 29: Today we will begin the process of writing our first major essay. In middle school we refer to these essays as Culminating Writing Tasks or CWTs. This is a major grade and usually counts as two or three grades. This essay will be two grades. The first grade is the rough draft grade. The rough draft grade is based upon the student's ability to follow the proper formatting requirements of the essay (ex. Does it include the correct number of paragraphs, does it follow RACES/CER). As I grade rough drafts, I edit students' writing. The second grade is the final draft grade. All final drafts must be typed and the grade is based upon the student's ability to accurately answer the writing prompt, fix issues that I marked while editing, spelling/grammar, and any other requirements set forth for the final draft (ex. including three transitional phrases). Again, today is the first day in the culminating writing task series. We will work a total of 6 days over the next 3 weeks on this essay. The rough draft grade will be due Wednesday October 4th (the day we leave for Fall Break) and the final will be due October 10th. Students MUST turn in their rough draft before leaving for break, so I have adequate time to read and edit all student essays by hand. Today is Lesson 24 in the Hatchet Unit.

    Friday August 11: We will go over rules and procedures

    Monday August 14: We will study Growth Mindset vs. Fixed Mindset and discover how the way we think can impact our lives. Students are expected to complete a mindset quiz and answer the following question at the bottom of the page: "Use RACES to tell me which category you scored. Make a prediction about why you scored this way. If you score in the 0-16 range, think of one habit you could use to improve your score by the end of this year.

    Tuesday August 15: We set up our 4-5 subject notebooks and learned how to annotate notes and a text. If students miss this day, it is very important that they come to Mrs. Bravo for notes, so they understand what is expected as they closely read the texts in our curriculum.
