And Then There Were Three..

Days of summer left…

I’m sure that many of you are as sad as I am about the end of summer (and by many I mean MOST) but I’m sure many of you are also pretty excited about getting back to school to see your friends and your teachers. (I know I AM!) However exciting the first few days back to school can be, it’s never exciting to find yourself stuck on bench because of missing summer homework assignments SO… let’s spend some time reviewing:

1. Did you complete your 8 journal entries and decorate your writer’s notebook?

2. Did you watch your history DVD America: A History of US and complete your viewer’s guide?

3. Did you do you math extra credit?

4. Did you complete And Then There Were None and your cheat sheet? Are you ready for the test on Tuesday?

Alright, now that we’ve got the logistics out of the way, let’s review ATTWN for a few minutes… Take a look at the questions below. If you can answer them, you’re probably in pretty good shape…

Why did the guests feel reassured when they arrived at the island?

What small mystery did Justice Wargrave figure out as everyone was telling their invitation story?

What happened after each death that was puzzling to the guests?

What were the guests’ crimes?

Who did Justice Wargrave think Mr. Owen was?

When Rogers was going around opening curtains, what did he discover?

How did Lombard try to convince everyone that has gun had been stolen?

What made people think that Armstrong had left the island?

Why did Vera think that Armstrong was not dead?

I hope you have all had a wonderful summer and I look forward to teaching you all starting this Tuesday!



Skill Practice HW – October 24/25, 2011 – Due by Tuesday night at midnight!

Hi KIPPsters!
Welcome back to the 8th grade reading blog! I know it’s been a couple of months since we’ve blogged, but I’m excited to make it a routine again! Here is your CRITERIA FOR SUCCESS:
Title of Book
1. Author’s Name
2. I read from page _____ to page ____
3. Retell of what happened in my reading:
4. Lesson Application: What do other characters think about your PROTAGONIST? How can you tell? Make a claim explaining an example of what others think about your protagonist. Cite evidence from the text to back up your claim.

If I were you, I’d consider writing this on a Word document first, then copying and pasting it onto the post. That way, you can work without worry first, then post. Have a great day!
