Today the students had the opportunity to go back through “Roger’s Swim” to talk about the sentence parts identified (subjects and predicates). We then had a discussion about direct objects where the students then located the direct objects in section A of the short story.
The students then transitioned into reading through “The Lottery” by Shirley Jackson where they did a literary and grammar scavenger hunt. From that scavenger hunt, they reviewed many of the skills required via the standards. They had 8 minutes to look at a specific set of concepts before switching to another set of concepts. Each table took turns with the requirements.
We finished class as we have all of this week with the ELA Olympics. So far, 6th period seems to have gained the most points overall (with “Europe” a.k.a. Side A) in the lead!
