Resources for work we are doing in class...

This link will take you to a selection of pictures and descriptions of items from the History Center.

PDF GOLD SHEET (aka Easy Helpful Writing Sheet)   --  This has some very basic stuff like where to put spaces with commas and periods. It also has samples of sentences using quotation marks so you can see where to put the punctuation. Lastly, it has a helpful hint for run-on sentences.
PDF The Lie by Kurt Vonnegut   --  This is the first story we read together for the theme of "Identity."
PDF Annotated "The Lie"   --  This is the story we read in class, with the notes we took. (i only included one class's notes, but they were all pretty similar.
PDF Identity Poems (You and Remenzels)   --  This is the assignment sheet for the two different identity poems. One should be about YOU. The other(s) should be about Dr., Sylvia or Eli Remenzel. (You can write it as "Eli is ... OR I am... but call it Eli's Identity Poem, for example.) Don't forget to include description and explanation with each noun or adjective.
PDF Ideas for nouns / adjectives for Identity Poems   --  You do not HAVE to use the words on this list. You CAN. OR you can use them to inspire your own ideas or even go off the list altogether.
PDF Vocab Chart for Choice Story   --  This is only space for two words. We printed it on a large sheet, both sides. If you lost it, you will need FOUR of these sheets to equal the handout.
PDF Vocabulary Chart How To   --  This is an example and notes on what I expect on the vocabulary sheet for the Identity Unit.
PDF Quotation Marks and Ellipses   --  Use this hint chart whenever you need to shorten a quote. (You should have at LEAST 7-10 words from your original quote. You can't just put, "He..." because you are lazy and don't want to write more!)
Identity Story Resources (click on this title to find the resources.)

This has copies of the stories AND copies of the visual vocabulary pages. 

Other pages about vocabulary, including the sheets that make the vocabulary folder and a page that gives examples and expectations can be found above.

You might need to be logged in to your school Google account to listen to the audio versions.

I think i have almost all of the stories recorded and on the site.
