This week in Mrs Toal's LA class 2/4/19
Good Evening, Well, that was an eventful day. The students handled the cold building very well. They wore hats, gloves, and coats. This week in Mrs.Toal's class.
We will continue to start each class with our daily warm-up to continue with grammar, spelling, punctuation, and mechanics.
The students are working very hard with their argumentative essays. We should be done by Wednesday. They weren't introduced to MLA formatting for writing papers.
Hopefully, they will remember using this next year and the years to follow. MLA format is the most preferred style for writing papers.
Many students submitted their Tom Sawyer project and they are fantastic!
Many still didn't turn them in, unfortunately, this project and the writing assignment are a very big portion of
their 3rd quarter grade. If they don't turn them in they will be in jeopardy of a very low 3rd quarter grade.
There is homework this week Vocabulary List #12. It is due Thursday and their quiz is Friday. We will begin celebrating Black History this Month the end of this week. We will be reading "Harriett Tubman, a Guide to Freedom". The students will answer text-dependent questions after the reading the selection.
I will be attending "The Underground Railroad in Delaware County" next Tuesday evening and I'm excited to share what I learn with your children.
I know Upper Darby was vital to the underground railroad.
Thomas Garrett, a Quaker, resided in Drexel
Hill helped thousands of slaves escape to
He was so vital in helping thousands that they named the street our school resides on "Garrett" Rd. after him. Warmer days are ahead of us as well as "opening day" for my son's college baseball sophomore season
(very excited)!!! As always email me for questions or concerns.!! Here's to a good week!!!
