    Shurley English 6 for October 11th

    This week we are working on Chapter 7. We did all of Lesson 1, the practice sentence on page 119 of the Teacher’s Manual, and went over the writing assignment in Lesson 5. Please complete Lessons 2-5 at home this week. Don’t forget to study past pairs of synonyms and antonyms.  There is always a section on the tests about these, and they can really bring down your grade if you don’t refresh your memory! Have a great week!

    Shurley English 6 for September 27th

    This week we finish Chapter 5. Please finish all vocabulary, practice sentences, workbook exercises, test, and the writing assignment.  And of course, up to 6 daily grams. For the writing assignment, you will be writing two paragraphs; the first paragraph is in the first person, the second paragraph can be the same paragraph with a change to the third person. Are practice sentences now include prepositional phrases, so if you are having trouble identify them, please review prepositions.  You can find a list of them in Jingle 9 of Chapter 4. Also, don’t forget to review your pairs of synonyms and antonyms before you take the test.

    This week we worked on Chapter 4. Please finish Lessons 2-4 and complete the writing assignment in Lesson 5. I gave you another guide sheet on which to write your rough draft.  Use this sheet to also improve your sentences like we did in class with our labeling sentences, then type or write neatly your final copy to turn in next Friday.  Have a great week!

    Shurley English 6 for August 30th

    We had a great first day on Friday! I enjoyed seeing “old” faces and meeting “new” ones.  The homework assignment for Chapter 1 is fairly light, because there is neither a test nor writing assignment. Also, there are no practice sentences this week! For this week complete vocabulary using the method I taught you in class.  Refer to Reference #2 if you have forgotten.  Make sure to keep all your vocabulary in one place in your notebook. There is a workbook exercise (Ch. 1, Lesson 5, Practice) to complete. I do not require the journal entries, but your parents might, or you just might want to keep a journal yourself. …
