Chinese Cinderella Ch. 14 – 18 w/answers

The Chinese Cinderella book is sad, but interesting.  Here are the questions all answered for the Chapters 14 – 18, which the open-book test on Monday will cover.  CC Ch 14 – 18 with answers-1vayeak

The test on Monday will be open-book, and open note.  However, I have picked the specific questions that will be on the test.  It may not be every single one of these questions, but these are the only ones that will be used.  Here is the study guide that I have made:  Study Guide HiET 14 – 18-2lnuzk3

Reading Counts for Book #3 is due December 15th!

Greetings!  Students should be aware that the last Reading Counts quiz is due on Friday, December 15th.  The books must be in the student’s Lexile range, and if their Lexile is over 1000, they should not be taking a quiz over anything below 600.  We have been busy taking the Reading Inventory starting on Wednesday, and finishing up today.  Only a few students remain that need to take it, and they were out Wednesday and Thursday.  Good job for several students who improved their Lexiles quite a bit!  

Today, students took the test over if they were not successful the first time over the novel.  Again, the biggest thing that brings students’ grades down is the lack of studying and not turning in their homework.  I am allowing them to turn in late work until Monday, Dec. 18th.

Finally, the last test for the quarter in every class will be open-book.  The students will be given the opportunity to use their notebook with the answers to the questions in it.  Unfortunately, not every student takes the time to write down the answers.

Here is a study guide for the students in periods 1, 2, and 6 over A Bottle in the Gaza Sea, chapters 14 – 18.  I will be working on one for the other novels as well.  The study guide is here:  Study Guide for 14 – 18 Final-2gf0tuk

Week of December 11 – 15th Reading Inventory will be given Wed. December 13th

 

Hope you all enjoyed the 3 1/2 day weekend due to the most snow we have seen in this part of Georgia in a long time.  It was great fun to be able to sleep late, watch movies, eat soup & go outside and play in the snow.  Everything will be back to normal on Tuesday, so plan to pick up where we left off Friday.  That means 6th and 7th periods will be taking the test that was scheduled then; 6th period will be taking a test over A Bottle in the Gaza Sea Chapters 9 – 13, and 7th period the students have 2 novels and will be taking the test over their book, chapters 10-13.

There were only a few in each class that did not pass, so those students will need to be ready to retake the test on Thursday (12/14).  Every class of mine will be going to Dell Lab #2 for the Reading Inventory (taken on the computer) on Wednesday.  This test is given 3 times a year, and it is our hope that each student improves their Lexile, even if just by a few points.  There are many AC students that already have Lexiles over 1,000 and that is great, but there is always room for growth!  Go for it.  Mrs. Roberts has already said that those students who improve over 100 points will receive a Blow-Pop from her.

So, with this 4 day week, we will be trying to get everyone to retake tests/quizzes they have to make up or did not do well on the first time.  Remember, the Reading Log #4 was due last Friday, December 8th.  Don’t worry, those in the classes I did not see on Friday will not be given points off for not turning it in then.  I will take it up tomorrow when I see their class.

 

 

 

Exciting News about Library Pass for Cobb County Students

The Library PASS is a partnership between schools and libraries. Library accounts were created for all Cobb County School students using their student ID numbers. Students will not be issued physical cards, but may use their Student Id and PIN number. Students PIN numbers are their birth month and birth date. For example, a birthdate of Feb 4 would produce the following PIN: 0204.
If a student already has a library account, they would keep it and also have the PASS account.
With a PASS account, students will be able to:
1.       Check out up to 5 books at a time.
2.       Check out up to 1 audio book at a time.
3.       Access the internet onsite at the library. (Parents can opt-out of this)
4.       Access the library’s digital resources from anywhere.
 
Students will not have to pay fines or be able to check out DVDs, hot sports, park & museum passes.
This program is in beta right now, but may be used by the students. It will Launch in January and a website will be available through the Cobb Digital Library.

Test for all classes tomorrow & Reading Log is due (12/8/17)

Greetings!  Sorry I did not get this posted earlier, but the students all know about the test they are having tomorrow.  We have finished answering and going over the answers to all the questions for A Bottle in the Gaza Sea.  Today they were even told which questions to study from each chapter.  Here is a recap, if they missed it during class:  (The test tomorrow is over Chapters 9 – 13.)

Chapter 9:  Question #16

Chapter 10:  Questions 3 + 4

Chapter 11:  Questions 5, 6, and 7

Chapter 12:  Questions 9, 10, and 11

Chapter 13:  Questions 12, 13, 15, and 17

Periods 3 + 7 will also be having a test tomorrow over their novels (Chinese Cinderella & A Hare in the Elephant’s Trunk) Chapters 10 – 13 only.

We attempted to go over the questions & answers in class, but they wanted to go to the library in 3rd period instead.  I took first and second period to the library today after we reviewed for the test.  6th and 7th went earlier in the week.  All of the students should have a book to be reading as the last Reading Counts quiz is due on Friday, December 15th.  There will be only 1 day after that to turn in make-up work, as we have to have all the grades entered quickly.

Here are the answers to the Chinese Cinderella that we covered in 7th period; it is not much, but it could help somebody.  Chinese Cinderella Ch. 10 – 11 with answers-1ztt8xx

Are you counting down the days until Christmas break???  We have to go through December 20th, but the last two days are early release days.  Just think, there are only 18 more days until Christmas!

Welcome Back from the Thanksgiving Break!

It is hard to believe that there is only 3 1/2 weeks left of the school year of 2017!  Time has flown!  I hope that everyone had an enjoyable Thanksgiving break.  I went with my family to our farm in Alabama & celebrated with good food and friends.

This week we are reviewing and making sure everyone in Period 3 and 7 has the correct answers to Chapters 5 – 9 of their novel:  Chinese Cinderella and A Hare in the Elephant’s Trunk.  We reviewed CC on Monday, and A Hare in the Elephant’s Trunk today.  The test over both of these will be this Thursday, November 30th.  Here are the questions & answers for both novels, in case you did not finish reading & answering the questions like you were supposed to before the break.

Chinese Cinderella:  Chinese Cinderella Ch 5 – 9 with answers in red-231d9tw

A Hare in the Elephant’s Trunk:  Comp Questions Ch. 5 – 9 with answers-24olrjz

The test will be short answer and multiple choice, no discussion this time.  Please study and feel free to check out either book at the end of the day (after 7th period students have used them).

As for Periods 1, 2, and 6, the test that was taken on  Friday before we left on break was returned on Monday.  Those students that were absent made up the test today, or tomorrow if they were not back on Monday.  The retest is this Thursday as well (11/30) and the chapters are the same and the material is the same.  The students who failed will take the retest & were given a copy of the questions again with the page numbers for the answers.   If there are any questions, feel free to e-mail me.

In class, we began a quick review of Chapter 9 yesterday, as we started it before we left.  Today we started Chapter 10.  All the students were given a copy of the questions for chapters 9 – 14, which will be what the next test covers.  It will probably be later next week.  Here is a copy of the questions for A Bottle in the Gaza Sea:  BiGS Chapters 9 – 14-1tt5mkf

Before the break, book #2 and the reading log was due on November 17th.  Many students have not been reading & writing down their 20 minutes of reading a night.  The new reading log was given out on Monday (11/26/17) for two weeks.  Here is a copy of the reading log:  Reading Log #6 Nov 27 – Dec 8-2634u86

Periods 1, 2, and 6 Test on Friday (11/17/17)

The above listed periods who are reading A Bottle in a Gaza Sea will be having a test tomorrow over Chapters 5 – 8 only.  Today in class we went over which questions would be on the test & even which ones were multiple choice, short answer, or discussion questions.  The test is made up of only 12 questions:  5 short answer, 4 multiple choice, and 3 discussion.  They should have their reading composition notebook with the questions and answers in it to study by tonight.

ALL CLASSES have the third Reading Log due tomorrow (Friday, 11/17).  It is available on my blog if they have lost it.  It is for the dates from Monday, Nov. 6 – 17th.  The 2nd Reading Counts quiz is due tomorrow as well, and many students have already taken it for my class with Bad Boy or Where the Lilies Bloom.

AC Classes are continuing to read & work on questions for their novels.  Here are the questions for the latest chapters of each book:

A Hare in the Elephant’s Trunk:  BiGS Chapters 10 – 14-2il5fx9

Chinese Cinderella:  Chinese Cinderella Ch. 10 – 14-1xocz95

I hope that everybody has a happy, healthy, and safe Thanksgiving holiday.  I have so much to be thankful for, and I know you do as well.

A Bottle in the Gaza Sea Quiz tomorrow! November 9th

We have been reading & discussing A Bottle in the Gaza Sea for over a week now.  Time for a quiz!  Students were given a 10 question study guide today & we went over all the answers in class.  Here is the study guide:  BiGS 1-4 Minireview for test-xjhm93  Remember, the test will be given on iRespond.  and if you know the answers, you should be able to remember the correct one!

Those in AC classes, be prepared for a POP quiz over Chinese Cinderella and A Hare in the Elephant’s Trunk, on Friday (November 10th).

New Reading Log given out today – November 6th

Students seem to always misplace their reading logs, and want to get another one.  This one is for 2 weeks, from November 6 – 17th.  In case you misplace yours, here it is to copy:  Reading Log #5 Nov 6 – 17-t1z5me

Today is the 4 1/2 week mark of this quarter, so progress reports will be going home next week.  I am pretty sure it is on November 16th.  Several students have not turned in missing work, like the past 2 reading logs.  Also, the first Reading Counts quiz was due on October 20th, so they should have taken one and passed it.  The second Reading Counts quiz is due next Friday, November 17th.
