Thursday, November 21st, 2013 and Monday, November 25th, 2013

Dear Mythology Kids,
If you missed class, we completed the following:

1. Students were introduced to an interesting way to annotate and notate their reading material.

NOTE: . Each type of notation correlates to a specific color. Please see the color key below.

  • If you  find a section of text confusing then you would underline it using BROWN.
  • If you are able to make a connection to your own life then you would underline that section of text using your PURPLE.
  • Another way to annotate is by asking QUESTIONS about the text. RED is the color you will use for this annotation.
  • If you come across a VOCABULARY word that you don't know use YELLOW!
  • If a piece of text touches you emotionally, then BLUE is the color for that annotation.
  • If a piece of writing is poetic to you, then use BLACK!
  • If text gives you a different perspective then GREEN is your annotation color.
  • ORANGE is the color you will use if you come across text that you find interesting

If you missed class, we completed the following...... By the way, pLEASE RETURN TO CLASS after THANKSGIVING with the information you missed today.
 1. Students worked in groups in order to share information about each section that they read. We worked on completing the Heracles Graphic Organizer. Each class was able to obtain the information for Birth/Eartly Years, Labors 1-6, and Labors 7-10. We will completed the remaining section upon your return from the break. COME BACK PREPARED, or you will be so LOST!

1. Work on your MOSAIC over the break....Remember that a 1/4 of it needs to be completed for Friday, the 6th!

Take care of yourselves....Do something nice for someone else, as so many people need help, especially this time of year.
