Checklist for the Week
Read Chapters 20-24 of The Hunger Games. Next week's lessons will include reading Ch. 25-27 and taking a quiz that includes Chapters 20-27. Students may choose to take that quiz at any time after it is posted, up until Wednesday, May 20th.
The book can be found here. Click on this---> The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins You can use that link with your Smartphone as well as on a computer.
Here are some links to me reading if you prefer listening as you read: Audio Version of The Hunger Games on Youtube. <---CLICK HERE
*Note: You will also find each chapter of me reading on Edmodo.
All Classes: Go to Edmodo and do the activity that is posted there. It is a Scavenger Hunt for Supercharged Sentences, so while you are reading chapters 20-24, look for supercharged sentences and post them to your small group in Edmodo. Please email me if you don't know how to find your small group on Edmodo.
All Classes: Next week, you will take the quiz for Chapters 20-24 as well as Chapters 25-27 on Edmodo that will be up and posted on Wednesday. The quiz will be due Wednesday, May 20th.
Check out Edmodo to get the Zoom invite and meet for about 30 minutes to discuss Ch. 20-24 on Friday.
Period 1/2 at 1:00 on Friday, May 15th
Period 7/8 at 1:30
Period 5/6 at 2:00
Zoom Instructions: I will post the link on Edmodo with a phone number you can call if you want to use a phone. There will be a "Meeting ID" and a "Password" that you'll need to enter if you use your phone. Also, there is third way to get on a Zoom meeting, and that is by downloading the app, Zoom. I believe that if you download the app, you will need the "Meeting ID" and "Password" which you can get from Edmodo about 5 minutes before the time of your class's meeting. We will be discussing chapters 20-24 of The Hunger Games. It will be a shorter meeting, and will only take about 30 minutes, but if you need to enter the Zoom meeting late or leave early, that is completely fine.
NOTE: Feel free to email me if you are having any difficulties. If your email comes through during the times of the Zoom meetings on Friday, I will hopefully be able to respond (but can't totally guarantee) and will try my best to help you with Zoom. If you're worried about using Zoom for the first time, we could set up a practice meeting beforehand. Let me know if you would like to do that, and always keep in mind, anything with technology takes patience!
1. Edmodo assignments: due Friday.
2. Reading: Technically due Friday; however, your reading quiz is not due until next Wednesday, so if you need extra time, you can use the weekend. ***Do not wait until the last minute to read all five chapters, however, because that will be about 60 pages to read in one day. To have an easy time of it, start your reading on the first day of the week, Monday!
3. Quiz: due Wednesday, May 20, because it will be combining Chapters 20-27.
Hope you have a wonderful week!
