The 7th graders resume reading The Great Gatsby and answer chapter questions (chapter 3 & 4) this week for homework.  This will require a lot of at-home reading but the students will focus on literary skills to assist with the writing style of F.S. Fitzgerald.  There is a small vocabulary list from Gatsby that students will study and use for a practice spelling bee in preparation for the Language Arts Festival Spelling Bee on November 6 and the essay/oration competition on November 20th. The 1920s era essay was due last Thursday so there is still time to turn in the essay without reduction in grade.  7th graders will continue improving their writing structure with short essays from the chapter readings.  This is the opportunity for students to incorporate the skills learned from writing standards strategy.  There will be a quiz on Friday based on information from chapter 3 readings.

Seventh grade students are now working on their Water Color Projects. 7B has finished practicing different water-color excercises, they are now going to create a Water-Color Animal Portrait, for this they will need to bring a color portrait of an animal. It is always better when students use original pictures instead of downloading them from the internet, however, if this is not possible a downloaded image is accepted.

7A has begun to practice different water-color techniques.

Waukegan, Illinois. Circa 1920s

The 7th graders had to take a pause on writing the 1920s era essay and dedicate time to writing their science essay.  Writing structure seems to be a problem so we spent time on “how to type an essay” such as double-space, indentation, suitable font and pitch (font size), cover page, bibliography and citation.  I want this skill to be ingrained so it will just be the standard format for their rest of their schools years to include college.  This week the 7th graders will resume researching and writing their 1920s era essay which is due at the end of the week (Thursday).  I realize they don’t understand why one must cite the work of others, so we’ll spend time synthesizing this skill.  Homework will consist of writing and revising their essays.  The essay will be due on Thursday and students will have a quiz Wednesday on the 5 essay writing steps, standard typing format and citation.

gatsby halloweenThe 7th graders will be working on the science essay and their Gatsby essay which is due at the end of the week.  Most of the research for their 7th grade science essay is complete; the students need to work on their essay structure and citing their work.  That will be the bulk of their homework: editing and revising their science essay.  They will apply the essay structure and research skills into their Gatsby essay about the 1920’s era. There will be no test/quiz.
