Thursday, March 26~ ELearning

Please watch the video below first, then read the post since I don’t read the whole post in the video:

Remember to plan out your day. Do an assignment. Take a mental break (go outdoors, listen to music, play a board game – whatever you need.) Then come back and tackle another assignment. That seems to be the best approach and one where you can get the most out of your day!

Please remember to visit the specials websites:  Heathcotegateway E-Learning options

Yesterday our zoom session went really well again! Please remember to listen carefully to the reading lesson, so you know what to do with your book club members. I will meet with students #11-15 tomorrow after the lesson. If someone still has a question that was not answered, you can certainly stay on and ask after our lesson.

Questions? Continue to add to our class Padlet: E-Learning Questions

Our zoom session today will be at 11 a.m. (reading lesson on secondary characters). I shared a google doc titled “Zoom Sessions with 3D” in your Social Studies Folder in your Drive with an updated link. Please have paper and a pencil ready for our reading lesson.


I hope you were able to connect with your book club members again. How does your story mountain look? Did you find more than one problem? How did your character react to the problems? Remember to list the problems and reactions on a separate sheet of paper to discuss with your book club members.

Also, please remember to post on your own blog  some time this week or early next week about your reading work. You can explain that every story has a story mountain and you can include a picture of the one you are either creating or created. Another idea would be to post a list of problems and your character’s reactions to the problems.  Your blog post should be a reflection about what you are learning in reading. I will review this after our zoom session too.

Session 9 is ready for you and your book club members. Remember to continue your story mountain work daily. This is one way to pause, think, and jot.  Readers will be at different parts of their story depending where you are in your book; beginning, middle,  or end.

Session 9(If you cannot download this—I also put it into your reading folder.)

Secondary Character Organizer

This organizer should be used to stop and jot ideas about your secondary characters. Talk about this chart with your book club.

Below I added our character traits lists that you can print:

character traits list 1

character traits list 3

Feel free to fill it out directly on the slides (erase the lines and type your answers) or print it out to hand write the information.

NOTE: Many of you are writing about Corona virus experiences. Please think about what you and your family did before we have been quarantined at home:) Use proper grammar and descriptive language to give good details.

Cultural Universals Graphic Organizer You can print this organizer and keep it next to you to help understand each one better.  I find it helpful to see the 5 cultural universals and the subtopics in front of me. You will need this for the whole project.
