Week of November 18-22nd

24 Nov

Vocabulary:  We studied five new words, in great detail.  For each word, you must think of a character and a song that ties (even loosely) to the word.  Explain your answer.

9th Grade: corroborate, precarious, apathy, ambiguous, vagrant

10th Grade: incoherent, mitigate, reprehensible, deride, lethargic


New Writing Piece, due on your Kidblog by class time Tuesday before Thanksgiving: 101 Things I am Thankful For.

Create a list of 101 things you are thankful for.

*Do not simply mention something, but mention an aspect of that something.  For example: don’t say “my dog” say “seeing my dog run full speed towards the ball I threw.”  This way you are focusing on the specific details about the things you are thankful for.  You could then write multiple aspects about your dog.  For example: “when my dog greets me at the door after a hard day” “scratching my dog’s belly until her leg kicks involuntarily.” So right there, we have 3 things about your dog.  This will make your piece more interesting and easier to accomplish.

*Come up with a creative title.  “101 Things I am Thankful For” will not be accepted.  Here is mine, it was called “101 Excuses to Get Up Early.”  Take a look at it and use it as a model.  Good Luck!
