Homework
Reader's Response Overview
A basic idea of what should be in each paragraph...

I will post PDF copies of the homework here. I will also post copies of my root notes. Homework is assigned every Monday and is due the following Monday. I have put each week's documents under a separate heading. If you click on the large, underlined words, it will take you to a section where you can click on the document title and get a PDF of what was handed out or examined in class.

PDF SPICY Response Entries Q3   --   Students who chose this packet need to pick a different one of the entries to do each week. MAKE SURE YOU CLEARLY LABEL WHICH ENTRY YOU CHOSE! This is considered "spicy" because there is a minimum amount of direction for what needs to go in each paragraph. ALL entries need to be THREE paragraphs, but YOU need to decide how you structure it.
PDF MEDIUM Response Entries Q3   --  Students who chose this packet need to pick a different one of the entries to do each week. MAKE SURE YOU CLEARLY LABEL WHICH ENTRY YOU CHOSE! This is considered "medium" because there is a moderate amount of direction about what should go in each of the THREE paragraphs.
PDF MILD Response Entries Q3 AND Q4   --  Students who chose this packet need to pick a different one of the entries to do each week. YOU WILL NEED TO REPEAT ENTRIES! Students are NOT filling in the blank- they need to re-write the entry including their own information from the book they are reading. MAKE SURE YOU CLEARLY LABEL WHICH ENTRY YOU CHOSE! This is considered "mild" because it gives you a lot of guidance about how you should be structuring your THREE paragraphs. You might need to change or add things to make it work with the story you read.
PDF Q4 MEDIUM Reader Response Choices   --  These are the new choices for Quarter 4. (You could also use choices for Q3 if one of them works better with what you are reading.) DON'T FORGET TO LABEL YOUR READER'S RESPONSE!
PDF Q4 SPICY Reader Response Choices   --  New choices for 4th Quarter! DON'T FORGET TO LABEL YOUR WRITING! Also, if you have another idea, come talk...
PDF Explanations for what should be on the Blue Weekly Handout   --  This is notes to help you make good answers and sentences on your homework. It also answers some questions you might have. This is the Medium / Spicy version, but the same thing is true of the Mild version- include details and make sure you have periods!
-ly Suffix Homework

-ly is a suffix (root found only at the end of words) that turns an adjective into an ADVERB.

Adverbs describe verbs and answer the question "how."

This was handed out 4/22 and is due 4/29.
