What's happening in class?

***Students do not have school on Monday. I have to say I'm a little jealous! :) Use that extra day to make your character sketch extra special and extra good!

In language arts, students will be turning in the final drafts of their character sketches on Tuesday, October 30th. Based on how detailed and insightful their rough drafts were, I'm looking forward to seeing the finished products!

We will also be working on Wordskills unit 5 throughout the course of the week, and we will be delving into the exciting world of pronouns!

In reading, we will start off the week with a review and a quiz on chapters 6-8 in the novel, The Outsiders. We will then continue reading, discussing and analyzing chapters 9, 10 and 11...........

***Currently, Johhny is in bad shape. He was burned badly in the church fire, and also broke his back when a beam from the crumbling church fell on him. Dally is in the hospital too, but a badly burned arm is not going to keep him there for long. The rest of the greasers are getting ready for the big rumble with the socs. The winners will get satisfaction as well as bragging rights, and if the greasers win, the socs will have to stay out of their terriory forever.

Will the greasers win the rumble? Will everything go smoothly, or will something go tragically wrong? Stay tuned to find out!
