All Boys, All Blogged: September 19, 2014

Focus: How can we improve as readers and writers?

1. Visiting the magical land of subject-verb agreement; make yourself an "is" card and an "are" card
  • Here is/are the books you ordered.  
  • The Broncos and Andrew is/are going to the movies.
  • Either the Broncos or Andrew is/are going to the movies.
  • Neither the Broncos nor Andrew is/are going to the movies.
  • In case you're wondering, the kittens, the stickers, and the marker is/are under the couch.
  • In case you're wondering, the kittens, the stickers, or the marker is/are under the couch.
  • Here is/are my class of brilliant boys. They are gentlemen and scholars.

2. Taking the subject-verb agreement quiz at

3. Independent reading (3 weeks left to finish your book)

4. Staging the different parts of Chapter 3 to illustrate power and weakness; finishing Chapter 3 together

Thesis of the day: In Of Mice and Men, Steinbeck uses ________________ (bully's name) to illustrate how bullies want ___________________ but end up ________________________.

1. Independent reading

2. Remember that next Friday, September 26, is the end of 6 weeks; if you have any make up work or revised assignments that you'd like to get credit on, you must submit it by 11:00 am on that Friday at the latest.
