Warm up: Notes on action and linking verbs
10 minutes to finish the multi-flow map from yesterday and to write your own summary of what is presented in your map.
I then passed out the StudySync consumables for the first unit, We The People. We started on a first reading of Of Plymouth Plantation by William Bradford (p. 4).

DUE TODAY: Book selfie and supplies
Warm up: What kinds of books do you enjoy reading?
I introduced some classroom procedures regarding warm ups and learning logs and then we organized our binders. Afterwards, I gave you time to read through the syllabus (which can be found on this page under "Important Information") and then we had a little quiz. Then we went over outside reading. A link to this information will also be added to "Important Information" soon.
Let your parent or guardian read the syllabus and get their signature on the back page. Due tomorrow.
This is to see where your skills are in English Language Arts.
