CRCT Practice

Last week students were given a list of CRCT terms compiled by Mrs. Cushman. Students in sixth grade have been reviewing the terms to prepare for the CRCT Language Arts exam which will be on Tuesday. There are so many terms, I knew it would be difficult to cover all of them in class, so tomorrow, Monday, students will be given an answer key to go with all the terms. Whatever review they are able to do at home is beneficial.

A Citation Has Been Issued

This week we began working on note card citations and note taking in the media center. Your note cards should have notes from a minimum of three sources. One book, one internet article, and any other of your choice. Your note cards will be due next Wednesday, March 7.

As a reminder, step one: make a bibliography card with the citation information from each of your sources. Be sure to number the bib cards. The note cards from each source should be numbered according to the number on the bib card. Step two: Determine what your questions will be and label each card according to those question words. Example: Who, what, where, etc. Step three: Notes should be words and/or phrases not complete sentences. This takes away the temptation to copy the exact sentences into your own paper.

Happy New Year!

Here's wishing you and yours a happy new year and a welcome back to school. As we near the end of the year and CRCT testing, it becomes very important for students to be diligent about homework and independent reading. Don't forget to complete reading logs. Check the Department of Education site for practice CRCT tests.

In language arts, we have begun Unit 14 of the Language! program. Homework tonight will be to make the flash cards for missed words. Remember: the word goes on one side of the card and the memory jogging sentence goes on the other side. For this unit, the lists were differentiated based on the score od the pretest.

Homework/Idiomatic Language

This semester we have worked on understanding idiomatic language. Students have come to understand expressions such as "inside track," "basket case," "keep your nose to the grindstone," and today, "second wind." In class, we discussed the literal meaning, the second of two winds, and the figurative meaning, a rush of energy. Students wrote example sentences using the expression.

Tonight's homework is to illustrate the expression "second wind." In class, papers were folded vertically in half and horizontally one inch from the top. Across the top of the paper students wrote the expression. The first column was labeled "literal" and the second column was labeled "figurative." Pictures are to be drawn on each side to represent the meanings of the expression.
