Vocab Review and Work Time

Class began the usual way. Students completed a WA that had them reviewing different grammar concepts. With the grammar assessment less than two weeks away, these reviews are becoming more and more important!

During IR, I continued conferencing with students about their argument checkpoint. All students have the opportunity to review and reassess, and for some this is a required step to get them where they need to be.

After IR, we moved into NBT, and today’s prompt was CNN10. It covered concepts like demilitarization of North Korea, the volcano eruption in Hawaii, and this Laurel vs. Yanny debate.

When we were finished writing, students completed sentences for their last set of vocabulary words of the year, and then they had time to get in a group and review the latest words by playing memory.

We spent the last 25 minutes in the library working on our letter projects, and I was available to help and answer questions.


  1. Read for 25 minutes.
  2. Bring headphones through the end of next week.
  3. Outlines are due on MONDAY.
