Reviewy Monday

Hey y’all! Your test is TOMORROW!!! #ohcrap #ineedtomakethetest #ijustdiscoveredhashtags #notreally #dontsayit #iknowimnotcool

Standard:

  • RL.9-10.1. Cite strong and thorough textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text.
  • RL.9-10.2. Determine a theme or central idea of a text and analyze in detail its development over the course of the text, including how it emerges and is shaped and refined by specific details; provide an objective summary of the text.
  • RL.9-10.3. Analyze how complex characters (e.g., those with multiple or conflicting motivations) develop over the course of a text, interact with other characters, and advance the plot or develop the theme.

Learning Target: Students will review for their Metamorphosis Unit Test tomorrow!!

Activator: 

First things first, let’s check out some different book covers for The Metamorphosis!

bookcover1 bookcover2 bookcover3 bookcover4

What does each cover depict? What does that say about the book? Why would the artists choose to portray the story in this way?

Next up, we’re gonna play a little review game! Everyone split into groups of 4 and for goodness sake, please put the desks into neat little tables -_- stop this “let’s destroy the classroom” nonsense… It makes me twitchy.

Anyway, once we are in groups of 4, we’re gonna start answering questions about the story. I have 180 questions! I’m going to hand a question packet out to each group and give you time as a group of 4 to work on it. Then, after you’ve had some time, I think an hour or so (that’s approximately 20 seconds per question!) we will come back together and go over the answers. Whichever group gets the most correct will get 5 points extra credit on their test!! WHOO!!

That’s our day today…be prepared for your test tomorrow, y’all! AND DON’T FORGET YOUR MOVIE PERMISSION FORM BY WEDNESDAY SO WE CAN WATCH ALIEN!!!!!!!

Closing Session: Ticket out the door – what questions do you still have that I can review tomorrow before the test?

Differentiation: Process – students will be able to find answers in the way that best suits them.

Assessment: Students will be formally assessed on the test tomorrow.

Lab + Review!

Standard:

  • ELAGSE9-10RI1 Cite strong and thorough textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text.

Learning Target: I will complete a formative assessment to determine how much I have mastered citing strong textual evidence.

Opening Session: To the lab!! We will open class today by heading down to room 201 and completing a formative assessment on standard RI1.

Work Session: JEOPARDY TIME!!!!

We’re going to come back up to the classroom and play REVIEW JEOPARDY!!!

Remember, you’re playing for 5 points extra credit on your unit test, which is TOMORROW! We’re going to use a different buzz in style this time – I’ve got the desks set up with a row across the front, and only the people sitting in the front row can buzz in. You’re still playing on teams, but only the front row is eligible to answer each question. That means everyone gets a chance to play – and everyone has to try!!

Closing Session: Final Jeopardy!!

Assessment: Formative assessments will be formatively assessed. Jeopardy participation will be formatively assessed. Winning teams will earn bonus points on tomorrow’s unit test.

Differentiation: Process (team size, hang time for answers)

Review Day!

Standard: 

RL.9-10.1. Cite strong and thorough textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text

Learning Target: Students will review for their unit test tomorrow.

Daily Video:

Confession time, I ADORE game shows. In fact, I passed the time while I was in the hospital having my son by watching Family Feud. So with that said, you shouldn’t be surprised to hear you’re going to play Jeopardy! to review for your test tomorrow! We play with all the regular Jeopardy! rules – that means answers must be in the form of a question, we buzz in, you can risk it all during Final Jeopardy.

Here’s round one:

2nd block, we are also going to the computer lab to do a health survey. Good luck on your test tomorrow everyone!!!

Countdown to Summer in 4…

Welcome to Monday, kiddos :) Wanna hear the good news? It’s our last week before SUMMER break!! Huzzah!

Standard:

Learning Target: Students will review major concepts we have covered throughout the semester in preparation for their final exam.

Activator: Six Word Stories by YOU GUYS!!!!

So let’s have a party! Whatcha think? I’ll pass around a signup sheet to see what everyone can bring for tomorrow. If you wanna and are able to bring something, we will happily partake, but if you can’t it’s no big worry :) I’ve emptied out the candy machine and will be spending the money on par-tay stuff for everyone to enjoy!

Also on the agenda for today? Handing back ALL your work! I have a whole filing cabinet FULL of your papers from the entire semester, tests, everything else :) If you DON’T want your stuff back, please don’t take it and then throw it out – I will keep it as artifacts of student work. Just let me know when I call your name that you don’t want your stuff.

And finally, we took some time to review any and everything you guys are confused about or want to see again. Our final exam is cumulative, but it is skills based, rather than content based. That means that I won’t ask you what act Julius Caesar was stabbed in (*waits patiently for you to yell “ACT III!”*) and I won’t ask you who wrote “There Will Come Soft Rains” (*more waiting for “RAY BRADBURY!”*) but I will ask you to read a selection and answer reading comprehension questions, to tell me which sentence has an error in it, to identify persuasive appeals or figurative language, that sort of thing.

You know what’s cool? If you want to review any of this stuff from home, it’s all right here on the blog. If you just get the sudden desire to go back through and watch Buffalo Buffalo Buffalo again, be my guest :) It’s all here for your amusement!

Don’t forget, review games tomorrow! And your final exams are Wednesday and Thursday, so study hard and I’ll see you guys then!

We now return you to your regularly scheduled Monday

Welcome to Monday, kiddos 🙂 Wanna hear the good news? It’s our last week before Winter break!! Huzzah!

Standard:

Learning Target: Students will review major concepts we have covered throughout the semester in preparation for their final exam.

Activator: As today is our review day, we will start by watching whatever video you guys would like to from the blog. Maybe two, if I’m feeling nice 🙂

So, my lovely students, I am excited to tell you that today is our LAST MONDAY together! That means, first block, you will never again get the pleasure of screaming “ROACH!” and watching me panic…and third block, you will never see me scream at you to please, please, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE BE QUIET FOR TEN SECONDS WHILE I TELL YOU WHAT TO DO, and fourth block, you will never have another Monday of refrigerators. You know, now that I think about it, I’m kind of sad this is our last Monday together 🙁 I’ll miss all-a-y’all!

So let’s have a party! Whatcha think? I’ll pass around a signup sheet to see what everyone can bring for tomorrow. If you wanna and are able to bring something, we will happily partake, but if you can’t it’s no big worry 🙂 I’ve emptied out the candy machine and will be spending the money on par-tay stuff for everyone to enjoy!
