Today's review activity involved a category sort where students grouped 15 of their vocabulary words into related categories and labeled them. For example, a popular category was "bold."
I reviewed my notes for verbs (all notes 1st period, only action verbs in 2nd and 4th). We began practice activities in the class handout.
We finished listening to/reading "The Monkey's Paw." Students have been designated groups that they will work within for the literary analysis portion of this story. I also collected all of the reader response journals as this is the final story we will read as a class for our short story unit. I did allow students who have not finished their RRJ for "The Monkey's Paw" additional time wherein they can turn it in tomorrow at the beginning of class.
