    Shurley English 6 for September 11th

    This week is Chapter 3. We completed Lesson 1 in class and most of Lesson 5. Please complete Lessons 2-4 and write your paragraph from Lesson 5 on notebook paper. Be sure to use Reference 4 on page 11 of your workbook to revise and edit your paragraph. A big shout out to Beth and Colbie’s parents for putting the tabs in the workbooks. It is a tremendous time saver during class! Happy Labor Day!

    Lingua Latina for September 11th

    This week take your test and have your parent sign it. Also, finish VL Lessons 12 and 13. The class will become more challenging from here on out, so be sure to keep up with your assignments. Commit to memory the ablative prepositions in VL Lesson 13 (Sid P. Space). If you have time begin to memorize the interrogative pronouns chart in VL Lesson 14. Happy Labor Day!

    Shurley English 6 for September 4th

    This week, you will be finishing Chapter 2. From Lesson 1, the only assignment left is to finish the activity on page 17 of the Teacher’s Manual (TM). Lesson 2 is completed. You will need to do Lessons 3-5 at home. Bring your completed work (practice sentences, vocabulary, workbook practice, daily grams, and test) to class on Friday. There is no writing assignment this week. Parents: it would be helpful if tabs were placed on the current assignments in the workbook, practice sentence book and daily gram book, so the students can quickly turn to the last assignment completed. Thank you 🙂 If you have any questions, text me at…

    Lingua Latina for September 4th

    Kudos to my discipuli latinae! Another great week! This week finish what we didn’t complete of VL Lessons 7-10 and complete VL Lesson 11 on your own. (Of course, text me if you have any questions.) I will hand out a test next Friday. This needs to be proctored and signed by a parent and returned the following week. The test is closed book/notes/internet/parent/friend/etc. The test will include vocabulary for VL Lessons 1-10 (I will give the Latin; you will give the English.) and the grammar concepts from VL Lessons 1-10. Of course, I mentioned a bonus worth 5 points in class last Friday. Have a great week!

    Shurley English 6 for August 28th

    Friday went very well. Both Beth and Colbie shared great long term and short term goals! The only item needing completion in Chapter 1 is Vocabulary Words #2. Students can find the vocabulary on page 7 of the reference section of the Student Book. Please follow the Reference 2: Six-Step Vocabulary Plan on page 9 of the Student Book. One other thing, don’t forget that I’ll check up to 6 Daily Grams (DG) on Friday that will count as extra credit on the first test! In other words, this is a very light week for English class this week! Enjoy!
