Wednesday, September 20th, 2017: Love the library! Remember, your new GoCard is your library card here. If you were away: we went to check out our awesome library today, and then learned about parts of speech – adjectives, adverbs, conjunctions, interjections pronouns, and verbs.

Monday, September 18th, 2017: Well done, everyone!  For next class, write one paragraph discussing ONE of the man’s character traits (your choice of character trait). This needs to be a ROUGH DRAFT ONLY. It may be handwritten or typed – you can write it underneath your chart from today, if you want (the chart is NOT homework). Due on Wednesday, September 20th. If you need to access the story again, you can find it here: http://aashley.weebly.com/uploads/4/3/8/2/4382474/side_bet_short_story.pdf. If you want to see today’s chart, it’s here: englishwithliao.wikispaces.com

Thursday, September 14th, 2017: Thank you for your insightful and enthusiastic participation today! If you weren’t here today, please finish reading “Side Bet” before next class, so that you will know what we read and discussed. You can find the story here: http://aashley.weebly.com/uploads/4/3/8/2/4382474/side_bet_short_story.pdf

Tuesday, September 12th, 2017: Were you away today? We discussed plagiarism, and students received a Plagiarism Contract that they will get signed by a parent/guardian by the end of September. There are extras on the shelf here in the classroom. Also, we started reading a story, called “Side Bet.” For homework, please write a one paragraph response about WHAT YOU WOULD DO IF YOU WERE THE MAN in the story. If you want to recap what we read in class, I have attached a copy of the story opening here: englishwithliao.wikispaces.com.

Also, here are the links to the websites that I showed you today:
