Do now
Copy the quote and author completely and accurately. Respond in a way that engages with the specific language or meaning of the quote.
Roots Brainstorm
Now, we will brainstorm as many words that contain this week's prefixes as possible. Remember the rules:

1. No words from this week's list, including the "words you already know."
2. No multiple forms of the same word.
3. No made-up words. One point lost for each.

Adverb Clauses
Open your packet. Using page 6 to help you, complete the exercise on page 5. Note- there are FOUR directions. Try to follow them all!

Then, we'll go over these on the ELMO. Make corrections and note what you are getting wrong, if anything. We can use this information moving forward to spend our time focused where you most need the practice.

First, let's finish reading this diary entry (we are on pg. 9)

Now, let's share some of our questions from this section.

Now, let's talk about CONNECTIONS:


Make THREE connections in the reading today. Write them on post-its and put them in the book. Be prepared to share.
"A bone to the dog is not charity. Charity is the bone shared with the dog, when you are just as hungry as the dog."
Jack London
You will have five minutes. Do your best!
Simile- a comparison of two things employing either the word "like" or "as."
"The snow was as fluffy as a pillow."
Personification- using human traits to describe an inanimate object
"The tires screeched as a the car pulled away."
Irony- when the expectations the reader has are violated.
For example, when the smartest character in the story turns out to be cheating on tests.
Character traits- words to describe what kind of person the character is. NOT feeling words.

Idependent Reading: Sentence Diagramming
Read silently for 20 minutes. Then, choose two sentences from the text you read which contain adverb clauses. Using page 6 of the AC packet, underline the adverb clause and circle the subordinating conjunction.

you're finished, label the subjects and verbs in the sentence.
