 Writing with Ms. McNeil (planner/agenda book says "Language Arts")

* New 5th grade writing REMIND code: 22976d
*All assignments are more specifically explained on Google Classroom.  My 
  GC code is 7bzogoi.

Monday – This will be a “catch up day”.  Students should check Infinite Campus and see what they are missing and use this day to turn in assignments that they have not yet completed.

Tuesday – Students will complete their journal entry (that they usually complete on Monday).  They choose their own topic.  Should be a full page, in paragraph form.  

Wednesday – Students will begin a research project (Standard C.5.5).  They need to choose an author/their favorite author.  Criteria will be posted on Ms. McNeil’s Google Classroom.

Thursday – Research and begin outline provided on Ms. McNeil’s Google Classroom.

Friday – Complete author outline.  Due today.

*Work ethic grades are earned by the level of completion, neatness, effort, and correctness.  If a student does not receive a 100 on a work ethic assignment, he/she is encouraged to read the comments  that I write on the paper, complete the assignment as directed, and turn the assignment back in to be regraded.  Journals and writings are assessed on the amount of critical and creative thinking, the details and feelings included, and the use of effective vocabulary, transitions, sentence structure, grammar, mechanics, and spelling.  When a student receives a "1" on their writing, that is equivalent to "novice" and will be a 69 (or below) in the gradebook.  A "2" is equivalent to a  "apprentice" and a "C", a "3" is "proficient" and a "B", and a "4" is "distinguished" and equivalent to an "A".  

*This year in writing we focus on letters, articles, and narratives.  We will improve our vocabulary and focus on writing complete, interesting sentences.  I will be encouraging students to use their "voice" in their writing, while including as much detail, feeling, and evidence as possible to back up their opinion or main idea.

Some students who do not have access to internet were given hard copies of the book Bridge to Terabithia. For everyone else there are two ways to read the book:

  1. 1.www.GetEpic.com/students (Class Code: LQC8327). This can only be used Monday-Friday during school hours. If you try using it at night time or on the weekends, it will prompt you to create an account that cost money. Please do not do this, I do not want families spending any money during this time.
  2. If you are unable to use Epic, there is a PDF copy of the book located in Google Classroom. I will also be reading the chapter assigned for the specific day during our daily zoom chat.
